The next time there is a service overhaul, it would be great if you could add the option of "Go to page (#)" on threads which have more than 20 pages, so that you can access pages of said thread without having to do it two pages at a time. When you have threads with over 500 pages, this can be most frustrating.

You can also just edit the URL with semi-random numbers. So right now the current page of the Respond to the last movie you watched thread (page 796) has the following url:

http://www.filmspotting.net/forum/index.php?topic=9536.15900

If you wanted to go back in time a year, say, you could try:

http://www.filmspotting.net/forum/index.php?topic=9536.10000

That actually takes you to December 2011, but close enough. Trial-and-error can often get you where you want to go a lot faster than using the page-by-page links.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Well, you just take the page (minus 1) you want and multiply by 15 (or however many posts per page there are). So no need for guessing.

That requires knowing the page you want, lol.
