Sylvia, poor Phil, give 'im two minutes!

He answered a PM from me on his cell phone today. ;-)

(Don't all PM him at once now, seriously; this wasn't about board matters -- we could be 5th cousins-in-law or something, you know! Just like me and Brian in Essex ... somewhat to both our chagrins ...)

any chance of this being fixed?

it's a bit like playing monopoly and you get to the final straight only to land on a chance square and be told to Go Back to Old Kent Road (English Version).

It is annoying to always be sent back to p.1 after editing

Me again ... This is something that started after one of the reorgs, a few months ago.

When one is on page 267 of a thread and one edits one's post (less necessary now with the elimination of random emoticon generation), one is flung back to page 1 of the thread.

Why? It never used to be the case.

When I'm posting on page 267, I have no desire to go back to page 1 and either navigate my way back forward through the page listings or backpage to where I was and reload. Time-wasting!

It's just as pointless when a thread is only 2 pages long. I've posted on page 2, I've edited my post on page 2, and I want to stay on page 2.

Any chance of a reversion to the former status quo?
