THE PROBLEM:
I find a game I like and decide to read a bunch of threads on the forum. It has 22 pages. I read a couple articles on the first page, no problem. Then I read an article on the 3rd page. When I'm done I go back to the first page. Then I click 3 times to get to page 4, and read a thread there. Go back to front page. Click 6 times... etc.

THE SOLUTION:
The good solution would be to remember which page I'm on and go back there.

Another solution would be to allow me to say, "I want to go to page 38 now", and jump straight to page 38.

The best solution would be to do both.

Warm regards, Rick.

Agreed! However, in the mean time control+click is your friend.

Navigating to any page of a multi-page topic isn't too tricky with quick URL edits:

e.g.
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/882739/targets-assigned-...
has something like 36 pages.

Click on any of the currently available navigation buttons (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, "next" ... [36])

You will get something with the same URL as the above, but with
"/page/x" appended.

To navigate to page 32, edit the URL to say "/page/32"

Enter.

Tabbed browsing FTW!

Another workaround is to click the 'Browse' link within the forum section on the game page. Within each folder on this page, there are 50 threads per page rather than 10 per page on the game page itself - so less clicking back and forth is needed.
