If visiting a thread I have read before, how do I jump to the first new/unread post in that thread, without having to manually scroll through the whole thing to see where I got to last time?

little blue numbers indicate the pages at the top of the thread...click on the last and at least you start with fewer entries to scroll through.

However...each page is its own challenge

Tapping Latest Reply at the top of the screen will take you to the very last reply as well.

The easiest way is to tap on the far right of the thread where it say "freshness". This takes you directly to the newest post.
This way works when you are looking at the General Board or any other bulk Board.

It'd also be nice if there was some sort of a highlight to remind us which threads we've participated in.

All great suggestions... but in response to the OP's question. It is not possible. You either start at the beginning, or at the end.

Cosmic, on the Forum Home page at he top of the "orange" block titled "Latest Discussions" and where the "sticky's" are.
But it's easier to say it's on the far right where it tells how old the thread is. Click on the "time", i.e., 5 minutes, 1 hour, etc.

Very true, but a 1 minute old post may have one or a hundred unread posts.
I generally click on "Latest Unread" and go back if warranted.

You can also tap, "ADD THIS TOPIC TO YOUR FAVORITES", and you will get emails for each new post.

Thanks skraps, I think this is the truth of the matter. What I was hoping for, simply doesn't exist. I think it may be the first forum I've ever been part of that doesn't have this feature.
