Well, adding 'next thread' and 'previous thread' buttons would be fine, but then there would be 11 buttons in the table. I'm pretty sure they would by split into 2 lines for 800x600 users. Wouldn't it be better to simply replace them with the 'next' and 'previous' buttons? I find the 'next' and 'previous' buttons pretty useless since they only switch between posts (and threads, if you're at the beginning or end of a thread). It's just as easy to simply click the post you want in the mini-threadlist below the post.

'next thread' and 'previous thread' buttons would be handy, since you currently can't view the next thread without exiting to the index, or viewing the first post of a thread and then pressing next. Which isn't nearly as fast as it would be to simply press "next thread".

---The top buttons already wrap to the next line in 800x600, so it doesn't matter, hehe. - SM_007 - 2000-05-17 00:00:00
