I find the tips board interesting reading and was a bit disconcerted by the new "threads" format although I can see it is a neat way of following up on a thread - but wouldn't it be possible to have the best of both worlds by adding a "next message" and "previous message" so that we can for example read quickly through the last twenty messages without having to go back to the message board each time ?
