Hello -

I voted 20, but I want even more. I would actually prefer to have this be a programmed attribute associated with your personal account preferences for max freedom (but this is more work for you). If you're not logged in, you would get 10 or 20 by default. If you are logged in, you get your preference.

I set mine to the max per page on all the forums where that's an option. Fewer page loads that way. I'm willing to wait a little longer to get there.

Gee, first I voted (20), then I read the posts. Can't unvote
If I could change history, I'd go with the fewer-posts-per-page-because-of-googlers-vs-bandwidth club, but privately have more posts per page (20 seems fine for me). But I say
DEFAULT=10

I like the idea of switching it to 10. After I heard about how registered users can change it I bumped mine up to 40 (I like to skim back when something new pops up). I think setting it to 10 would reduce bandwidth from googlers and bump up advertising income for EM from them (more pages=more ads).

Well I run at 40ppp. I prefer to not click as much, but just read. However, your initial statement is misleading. You neglect to mention "default" ppp. Your reasons for changing to 10ppp are valid and good ones, and the fact that I can change them as a registered user is great, but your question didn't say that, so I voted 20. For the reasons of guests and bandwidth, 10ppp is a better number.

If you change the question to "default" length, change my vote to 10
otherwise if the option was there I'd do 100 posts per page.

edit: haha! seems I'm not the only one confused about the default length thing. Best get a fixin'!

Oops, I did what several others did.
Change my vote to 10 also.

Let us better get attractive enough to retain their interest for more than one pages...

MetroMPG, being the boss does not mean you have to think like those business school types are thinking these days.. Wrong fashion?

Actually, Ben corrected me by IM after I posted that. Looks like most of the Googlers are looking at more than 1 page after all. Yay.

well snap. Guess it should stick to 20 then, eh? (eh?) A good compromise between bandwidth and information.
