Take me to the latest post!

I'm a navigation nut. I want the navigation on the site to feel easy and fluent. I should not have to think twice. 
This is generally the case here on NG+, we have a good platform. However, I seem to not naturally be drawn to the current methods of getting to the latest post while browsing new content. 


  1. Does nothing more than show you what type of content it is.
  2. Takes you to the latest post in the thread
  3. Takes you to the start of the thread
  4. Takes you to the latest post

It works as is, but 2) is neither an obvious choice design wise or that easy to navigate via. The travel from "Unread Content" in the top left and 4) is also not good from a UX perspective. I would suggest making 1) also go the the latest post of the thread/the new content.

I'm glad I'm not the only person who is annoyed by this.  At first, I didn't even realize that 2 was separate from 3.  Honestly, I wouldn't mind if 3 also took me to the new content.  If I'm on the Unread Content page, I'm probably looking for just the unread parts, not trying to navigate to the start of a thread.
