The experience for finding moderator / developer posts in threads is horrible for multiple posts

There is no way to know how many moderator or developer posts exist in a thread.

When a thread has a (any amount) of moderator or developer posts then it is shown in the "subforum view" (for example: "General Discussions", what you see when you click this link for example: https://forum.deadbydaylight.com/en/categories/around-the-campfire) for that particular thread.

This feature does not work properly.

When you click on the icons the thread is opened, but at the first tracked post.

For this thread: https://forum.deadbydaylight.com/en/discussion/198591/11-79-survival-rate-new-stats-released/p1 all of the buttons jump to this post:

https://forum.deadbydaylight.com/en/discussion/comment/1686820#Comment_1686820

The buttons are "Mod", "Dev", "Community Manager" and "Trusted".

You can try this out for yourself by manually looking for the thread in the list, at the time of writing it is on page 2: https://forum.deadbydaylight.com/en/categories/around-the-campfire/p2

All of the buttons jump to the same post.

The first post is by a "Trusted" user and compared to this post by @Peanits, not useful for future posters: https://forum.deadbydaylight.com/en/discussion/comment/1687990/#Comment_1687990

But finding this useful post is not possible. As a result other users did not see this post, and the thread was closed.

With bonus: Anyone who sees this thread, saw the stats, agreed that they stats make no sense when interpreted as being tracked for all players regardless of them doing a challenge or not, now also have no easy way to see these relevant posts. It is easy to find the first post on the first page with the stats, and it is easy to find the last post in the thread, but neither one of those fully explain the issue with the stats. The posts that do explain this are not easy to find at all.

I suggest the following:

  • when clicking the buttons it should jump to the corresponding first post for that button - if I click on "Community Manager" I expect to be taken to the post by @Peanits. The same principle for all the other buttons
  • for tracked posts add a button to jump to the next tracked post, regardless of tag
  • for tracked posts add a button to jump to the next tracked post with the same tag - if there are multiple posts tagged with "Community Manager" I want to be able to jump to the next (or previous) post that is also tagged "Community Manager"
  • let devs, mods and community managers tag a post as "Important" and open window for anyone who tries to comment in the thread the first time after this post was made to draw their attention to it. For the thread I linked @Peanits could make a post saying "The stats are tracked only for players with a relevant challenge active.", mark that as important and then everyone who wants to post in this thread will have to acknowledge they have read this post the first time they want to post in this thread after the "Important" post was made
