Am I the only one...

...that sets their forum preferences to display 50 posts per page?

Reading though some of the longer posts on this, and other sites, I always see people who jump in late and say "I didn't have time to read all 3 pages, but..." To which, I think to myself "why is this dude still set to 10 posts/page?"

Can anyone explain to me why you like clicking "next page" so much more than scrolling through 50 posts at a time?

Thanks,

Because most of us are too lazy to check the settings.

And now that I know they're there... fixed. Good tip.

I had not realized that was adjustable until about a week ago, when someone mentioned it.

What difference does it make to you?

Well I'm glad I could help some out. I've been on forums for a while and have been changing my settings to max posts/page for about as long and just wondered why some don't do the same because it seems much more convenient to me to set it that way. I understand the "different strokes for different folks" but since I hate 10/page I thought I'd ask why some prefer it so that I can understand the other side's view better.

I think it's easier to have the shorter pages for ongoing threads, since I can select the last viewed page, rather than having to search 50 posts for the place I left off.

That's what "View First Unread" is for, or even better- that little button in the control panel.

Only reason is if you have a buggy connection or dialup.

Many web browsers will not display the page as it comes in anymore.

What this means is a blank page for 5-10 minutes and then bam, in the old days you could watch as the page formatted on the screen, honestly I miss those days, you could " see" if malware wanted to run.
