How about a link from the Help Desk part of the message boards to get back to the main message board. Seeing as the first link at the top of the main message board is "questions/problems", it would be nice to be able to follow the path backwards all the way back to that page by having that link included at the beginning of the path you have taken at the top of the subsequent pages.

clicking on the S@H logo will take you to the home page once S@H1 is shut down.

Of course there are many ways you can get back there with just a few steps, but why have the path links at all if they are not going to be complete and get you back there in just one step?

If you look at the path link at the top of this page is reads

Questions and problems : Wish list : A Wish

If you look at the path link at the top of the regular message board, it reads

Message boards : Number crunching : Strange Computer Description

or the appropriate name for whatever thread you're in.

One of the methods for getting to the questions and problems board is the very first link on "message boards", but if you follow that link to get here, your path link at the top of the page starts at step 2 instead of step 1. On the other board, it takes you all the way back to step 1.

If it doesn't allow you to go back to where you came from, what's its purpose? Why have it at all if it's not fully usable? All it needs is one more link to take you all the way back to the main message board starting point to make it complete. A very simple request, then it does everything it should do.
