One problem for me at least, is the fact that on occasions, clicking on the 'last response' column in 'My Forum Posts', can either lead to the last post being made to that thread, or possibly to a page, with only the originators question. Which then leaves you to back-track, to connect to the last response.
This, I find, usually happens on the longer the posts with more hits or answers. It doesn't always happens though, on every posting or thread.
It it just me, or have other member's noticed this, and had the same issues.
"I fairly sure it occurs when FE has deleted a post."
It seems strange, because if that is the case, then the Forum Editor or someone else with the silver mouse must have deleted some threads this morning, while I was doing some experimenting, and that doesn't seem to be the case.
"It's been like it for years not just the past fortnight" same for me, I just edit the url in top address bar to the page prior (ie: if it's pn=6#firstPost I change the 6 to a 5 and then press Enter on keyboard).
It seems to trip over to next page when previous page is full. Also it doesn't go to the 'last response', ie: if you look at the end bit of url it goes to the First Post ?pn=3#firstPost
