So I'm building a feature in 2.0 where you can jump right to the last comment you read in a thread so you don't lose your place.
I'm thinking I should probably give a general comments link and a jump-to-last-read-comment link...
where if you clicked '7 comments' under the amusingly-misspelled 'San Fransisco' link, you'd go to the first comment in the thread, like it does now.
If you click the small triangle on the right, it jumps you to the last comment on that page.
Now, if you're logged in, and you've read that thread before, I'm thinking, instead of the triangle jump link taking you to the last comment, it'll take you to the last comment you read in that thread, so you can pick up where you left off.
If you're not logged in, or you've never read that thread before, the triangle would take you to the last comment on that thread, period.
Here's a wrinkle. If you've read that particular thread before? And there are new comments on it that you have not read? The triangle turns blue. In the screenshot above, I've read four threads that now have new comments for me to read. So I can scan the page and see which threads have unread comments.
