you know, when my nick appeared in the forum - somebody got new work
well, i'll not annoy you with resume a while, because i had not bad traffic last time (i even don't know why - tfu-tfu-tfu to avoid sglazing
so, your nice script last_posts, appeared at the right side of window brings after clicking the link not to the last post, but to the first
page of the topic, where the last post was made - it is not nice when that topic has some pages.
also, this led to reloading of the full topic page - it took some time even when you have a good traffic. also, if you are in course of the last posts you may not be interested with previous posts since they are already read. so, in this, i think it would be nice, when after clicking link in the last_post a popup window will appeared, containing only text
of the last post without attachment etc., and there must be a link to the real its place in the forum. so, when you see a new post appeared you click the link, read the text in the popup window, and then, if you are satisfied - close it, or go to the full topic when you are interested with it (or want to see/load attach or make a reply).
i hope this will make site more nice
