    I'd like the ability to mark a group or thread as read--not just the entire forum.

    I like the new regional forums. Thanks.

    Do you think that the main forum 'Tesla Motors Forum - Discussion about Tesla Motors' should be moved up ahead of the community forums? That way when the website is launched, they are near the top and you would need to scroll down.

    Good point. We're not quite done with everything there. So I'd rather not confuse people by moving things around too often.

    could you put a subforum in all models about "wheels & tires" the number of topics about this is getting out of hand I think!

    Yes, we're discussing it now and hope to have it worked out in the next couple weeks.

    It would be nice to be able to mark an individual thread as read so you dont have to open each page to get it off your not previously read list.

    It would also be nice to add a feature to "ignore thread" - or, "ignore subforum" (e.g., I would be OK not watching Roadsters for sale, for now...) so they doesn't appear in the New Posts view.

    I found a vbulletin mod that would solve this exact issue, apparently it will also work in 4.x versions as well:
    Selective Forum Filter - vBulletin.org Forum

    Actually, I have another solution to that problem which I hope to roll out soon along with some other fixes.

    Yay, the new interface now highlights which page you are viewing in the page numbers.

    OK, that's weird, now all the lines appear clear. I've noticed this a few times, but it seems to be a temporary situation. Maybe it's my computer, anyone else notice this?

    Let's see what this looks like:

    Can we get the big "Goto last post" and "Goto first new post" icons back? I created some a while ago, and posted them here:

    Go to last post icon Post #6

    Thanks.

    Looking at a clone of the old site, seems we never got a big "goto first new post" button.

    The current firstnew.png image is 12x12px and lastpost-right.png is 12x10px. Do you think you could make a few different sizes I could try?

    Cool - a nice big button would make it a heck of a lot easier to use on a phone browser!

    Increasing the size would be awesome for mobile phone users. It was next on my priority list for mobile phone usage. Right now I have to zoom in a bit to target the icons. It isn't a big deal but would be really appreciated.

    It's odd to me that the nice large thread envelope icon itself isn't a click target.

    This one:
    thread_new-30.png

    I'd like to see that become clickable and perform the "goto first new post" action. That should be easy enough to hit on all devices, and wouldn't add any additional space.
