Is there a way to scroll ahead?

Newbie here. When I open some very long threads, the first post I see is from 2017 or 2019 or like that, and I’ve got to scroll through a few thousand posts to get up to posts from this month–is there a way to do it more quickly than holding down the down arrow for fifteen minutes?

See the post count in the small box? Tap your finger on that and a slider will appear that lets you scroll to the bottom. This works on mobile but I don’t know if it does on a laptop.

Another option is the « last reply » box just under the very first post. That takes you to the end of the thread.

NM. Had to adjust my glasses.
