Also the new Avatar site isn't doing justice to my old Avatar, can that be changed?
A-ha! It can be found here:
Below DrewDad's first post there it says "View best answer, chosen by the community"
what i do to get to the top is click "Home" at the bottom of the page.
that won't work when you're in a thread though.
so the real answer is use "Top" and "End"
