Personal list of threads/messages should have a local table of contents.
Open, LowestPublic

Description

Each time when I select "mark as read" on a thread on the page "new messaegs (some number)" of my personal user-specific links, the page is redisplayed and both paging and scrolling are started from the newest thread. Since I do not mark newer threads as read before having read then, and I read them in roughly chronologial order, I have to page back to where I was before, then scroll down to where I was before, and continue reading. With several 100 threads and messages, this is extremely time consuming. I spend a magnitude more time waiting for pages to be sent to me just to immediately go to the next page, and scrolling down than actually reading. Unfortunately I do not have a choice to avoid using this extension, else I would.

Thus I suggest to include a table of contents in the personal page, so as to avoid the need of scolling to threads. Since impersonal threaded pages have one already, I believe, this would be pretty easy to do.

LiquidThreads has been replaced by StructuredDiscussions on all Wikimedia production wikis (except one, which will be done soon). It is no longer under active development or maintenance, so I'm re-classifying all open LQT tasks as "Lowest" priority.
