    Increase to 50 posts/view?

    Advertisements



    Any chance we could get the number of posts viewed per thread up to 50? It's currently at 10, and so in order to read a decent thread of say 50 posts, you have to click on it 5 times. Takes a lot of time.

    SDN is at 50/page, and it's much easier to read.

    Thanks.

    The reason why we have it at 10 instead of 50 is because it takes alot longer to load 50 at once than 10, particularly if the reader only wants to read the most recent ones. It doesn't make much difference to those with high speed internet, but it makes a difference to others.

    By the way, there is a page navigator button at the top and bottom right of multi page threads that allows you to more easily navigate to page 5. I think it goes in increments of 3, so you might need to press 2 buttons....but that's better than the 5 you are pushing now to get there .

    Actually, a page load of 50 messages takes much less time to read than even 2 page loads of 10. This is especially true for those without highspeed internet. The reason is that most of the larger graphics and banners are at the top of the page and all have to reload on each hit.

    A 50 page load actually benefits the low-speed internet people like me. If I had high-speed, it wouldn't make that much difference -- although it would certainly be better.

    So, either way, high-speed or low-speed, everyone wins with a 50-page load. And if you don't believe me, just try it out: compare a 50-page SDN load with 2 tens from here. You'll see what I mean in a hurry.
