Clicking a thread for the first time goes to last page and post...

When opening a thread for the first time. I think its not good to be at the last page and last post. this makes no sense. And it makes you lost. If it could be adressed so you see a thread from the start would be better. I understand this idea, but the most logical is to go on first page 1st post.

Does this happen with every thread for you? It has never happened for me and I can't seem to reproduce it. The only time I am not taken to the first post of a thread is if I have already read some of the posts, it remembers where I was up to.
If you follow a link from somebody else, it is likely that it will have a post number on the end of it.

yes every time in new threads. works the same as the threads you 've visited

Mine works ok

If I click a new topic title I go to the start (or where I left off)
But clicking a new topic on the "Today at 7:05 PM" takes me to the end... maybe that's it?

If I am in the "Latest Posts" display then it takes me to the most recent post that I have not yet read. If I am in the forums then it takes me to the first post. Can you maybe share more details?

When I click on the homepage (with the banners) I go to last page and last post. And I noticed if I am in the forum, while I haven't read anything from some threads, when I click them it takes me to 2nd page middle, while the thread has more pages to it

If you are a guest (not logged in), you are taken to the last post of a thread. I don't know why that is, but there's no obvious way to change it. We'll look into it further.
The Portal Page (page with the banners down the middle) is a separate page that does not use the forum software and so it does not know who is logged in or not, and thus treats you like a guest and takes you to the last post in the thread. Navigating from within the forum (vi-control.net/community) should only take you to the last unread post.
I can't really explain the behavior you describe in the 2nd half of your post, as I don't think anybody else experiences that, unless following an external link shared by somebody else.

I am there, see "This is London Calling" thread, click on it, and I get sent to page 36, out of 38 right now. That's just an example.

Then I see this thread
Omnisphere GaiKaiju by The Unfinished

and I click on it, it sends to me first post, nice.

Maybe this is something that has to do with bigger resolution screens?
