Messages have a "next unread" link and forums have a "first unread" link.  Both of these take you to the next unread thread but not to the most recent message.  A thread might, for instance, have 4 pages of messages.  When I click "first unread" it opens that thread on page one instead of page four.  Aaron, can you change this to jump to the last page of the thread?

If you don't read the forums very often, you'll know that and simply not use the next unread button.  Frankly, in most forum software, your views are tracked and the button would take you to the specific message that is the newest for you.  As it stand, though, next unread is useless for those of use who read the forums frequently because we only need to view the last few posts, not 5 pages from the beginning.
