Request: pages in forum update

Website Bug Report
"Threads now infinitely scroll as the “pages” system has been removed."

Pagination gives the user more control over navigation. You can skip to any part of a fifty page thread by simply opening the first page, clicking on the "..." in the page list and choosing which page you want to visit. To do the same thing with infinite scrolling, it is necessary to scroll to the bottom of the page twenty or thirty times and either press a "more posts" button or let JavaScript request more content automatically.

This is especially important because you say you're adding the ability to embed images in posts. Under the pagination paradigm, skipping to the last post will only load a fraction of the images posted to the thread, while under infinite scrolling performance will be worse because all of the content is being loaded at once.
