Thread page length 10 or 20 posts?
Hi all,

I've been thinking about changing the number of posts per page in a thread to 10. Here is my reasoning:
  • Shorter page loads
  • Easier to find posts
  • More digestible

However, I thought you might have some opinions, so, here's a poll.

Please do state your reasoning.

Nah, keep it at 20. I don't find pages take too long to load. I digest things just fine thank you.

My preference is less clicking, more reading. I like to be able to see what earlier posters have said in the thread. I would much rather not have to keep flipping between pages.

I think they're valid reasons to go lower, particularly since so many threads have lots of pictures in them.

I only say this because:

Anyone who wants to override the default setting to view more posts/page can do so through the User CP anyway. I've set mine higher than the forum default because I'm on high speed.

It'll also potentially reduce bandwidth costs from the high number of visitors we get who arrive via a Google search but only look at one page.

I personally run at 40 ppp. I think reducing the default to 10 might help with your bandwidth costs though.

I like 20. But I voted 10 to reduce the load time for them Googlers.

Doofus McFancypants 03-12-2009 03:24 PM

i voted 10 for Default.
I am going to up mine to 40 ( high speed)
but can see the Googler only needing 10 posts to get Hooked.

I think we'll move to 10 this evening and see what happens. At least we know registered members won't be inconvenienced if they don't like it.
