During the alpha testing of ipb 3 some have posted they are upset that the go to top button is gone.

It was from my understanding removed do to keyboards coming with the feature built in. This would be the home button on the keyboard.

I personally was not aware of the top button nor have I used it. I looked how ever at my ipb site and I see the top button, which I did not realize before. I also came here to see if ocf /ocportal had a top button and I see one on here, which I know I have not used nor did I really notice until now. I may have seen them in the images when making skins/ themes but may not have realized what they were for until now.

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.

I personally never use them, I instead use the mouse wheel or the automatic scroll feature. I think this is something that (at least for me) I would have to train myself to use.  I've just used the mouse wheel for so long it comes as habit.

Yep same with me and the home key on the keyboard. I one time had a keyboard with out the home key and it drove me nots so I got a new keyboard as soon as I could.

Does make me wonder why so many are upset by that bottom being gone on the new ipb.  I went looking at other forums like mybb, smf and vb and all 3 of those do not have the top bottom.

I'm the same…so used to scrolling with the mouse that I don't remember the last time I've actually clicked a top like button.

If my hands are near (or on) the keyboard, I just press the Apple/Command key + Page Up, which scrolls to the top of the screen… however, if my hands are on the mouse, then a back-to-top button is very much appreciated!

They do, but on my MacBook I have to utilise the 'function' key at the same time, and the two keys are on completely opposite ends of the keyboard… therefore the Command + Up arrow key is a much easier combination to press. ;)

Ah I do not think I would like using a Mac much then.
Way to used to linux and windows to switch to a mac.
Although I am glad ocportal works with Mac unlike another script I used at one time.
