comment What to do with the “last” button in pagination?
Is this a design suggestion or are you implying that there is no problem with such layout in the first place?

@Izkata - there are a lot of different remote control layouts on the market. It's also not entirely applicable to GUI pagination, fast forwardining and skipping chapters is substantially different to paging, and there is usually no button for going to the end of a movie (why would there?) Also, it is a more tactile interaciton with remotes, the finger can rest centered on the play button and from there feel its way to the buttons nearby. I think applying the remote control metaphor here might actually be a bad idea.

comment How to tell user to wait for the verification email?
"We'll send an email in 5 minutes" sounds like the system deliberately keeps me waiting for the mail and there is not the slightest chance that it will arrive earlier than that.

The first solution is simple but effective. Never more than two klicks necessary and it saves so much space, I like it! I'd maybe also display "/10" after the combobox, like in your second solution.

Editable page numbers seem to get more common lately. I think it's a good pattern, especially when jumping to a specific page is needed often.

Thanks for your thoughts. I agree that eliminating "last" would be a terrible idea in some cases, but I also never suggested that.

I'd just use letter pagination for alphabetically sorted lists.

Infinite scrolling or filtering is not always possible. Sometimes the only option is a plain pagination bar. Optimizing search results can reduce the need for pagination, but not eliminate it.

I like the concept of having the last page's number as the "last" button. It also adds the benefit of having the total number of pages visible.

I didn't know that users came with instruction manuals :)
