[Suggestion] Home page auto-scroll

The further you go in your course the further you have to scroll down trying to find your last "check point". I believe it is a simple improvement(proportional to the small annoyance it causes) that would make our lives much easier, especially in the context of this new design. What do you guys think?

this sounds like a good idea. I like the new layout on the home page, but it loads so slowly that scrolling for me is super jumpy, which is really annoying.

Somebody should tell the designer, that unlike smartphones other computers have landscape view monitors... And he should take that into account when designing a webpage. Home page is not the only one where half of my monitor is not used (and I have a 4:3 monitor, not 16:9). I really hate when I click on Discuss sentence while practicing and discussion is in the middle half of the monitor (and scrolling is also very bad, either you have to get the mouse cursor above it (otherwise it scrolls the greyed out backgroud page) or click on it and only then you can scroll with keyboard).

I like it without the auto-scroll because I jump around to keep my skills golden, and sometimes I just realize I need a refresher. (I've already finished my tree. But, I'm not at level 25 yet and I am continuing to practice.)

I see your point, but in your case you would have to scroll anyway, unless you were always reviewing the first set of lessons. But,in order to reach common sense, once you finish your tree, the auto-scroll could either be reset to the first lesson(as it is now) or be set to the last lesson you've practiced.

PS: Congrats on finishing your tree! :D

Bump! I completely agree, auto-scroll has still not been implemented.
