    Would it be possible to duplicate the toolbar at the top containing the Thread Tools, Search this Thread, Rating and Display Modes items at the bottom? I'm always at the bottom of the page when I want to subscribe or rate a thread.

    Actually, probably a better reason is that those toolbars are probably going to be quite code intensive and reapeating it would increase the client and server load as well as download quantities.

    Shouldn't be the case if coded cleverly. You simply cache the section of HTML generated by the PHP/Database and then re-output that section of HTML at the bottom of the thread.

    That would still suck up a fair bit of bandwidth.

    Hm. I never even thought about bandwidth. How about a Subscribe/Unsubscribe link then?
