Better Comment Page Selection - An Idea

I just wasted 15 minutes

As you know, new comments are added to the back of the list, so in order to edit my new comment, I have to load everyone's comments before mine, page by page. Usually that's not a problem. But in very old posts like this, it can be time-consuming. 

I tried using the direct link https://gamebanana.com/threads/168527?post=9723003, but even GameBanana itself gave up finding my comment. 


^ I just spent 10 minutes loading my new comment, and it almost crashed Chrome. 


Potential Fixes:
- add a "go to last page" button /or/
- use a dropbox to select a specific page number /or/
- display multiple page numbers side by side, so that I can skip loading a few pages 
(e.g. display 1 to 7 when I am on page 3, so I can click on 7 instead of the right arrow and skip loading 2 pages) /or/
- fix the direct post link so that it would never gonna give me up


Edit:

Just found out that I can "hack" the right arrow button to load a specific page number. Maybe it is possible to use a textbox as input to change that number directly, instead of manually digging through the code to edit it.

    See attached image. You need to hover the current page number.
