    These forums seem to be getting quite popular (yay!) and I think popular forums should always increase the number of posts per page.

    It's kind of annoying having six pages for a thread which is only a few hours old.

    I have 50 posts per page on my forum but that may be overkill. Either way 10 seems to be way too little here.

    Maybe 25?


    edit: ahhh just remembered I can set this through user cp. Still might be worthwhile to change the default. Up to you Nick!

    You know, I was thinking the same exact thing earlier. I'll bump it up to twenty. :)

    You know, I was just thinking the same thing too! :D

    Great minds think alike.

    Arny, you should join in on the "brilliance circle" - a group that Nick, Savage, and I created just recently.

    I would be honored to bring down the average intelligence in the brilliance circle! :D

    Nick, an increased count can increase relevant content on a given page. But remember it can also change the page counts, so some re-indexing can be occur. I would pick the count up to the 20-25 range and leave it alone from there.

    After this suggestion, I went back and changed my Walt Disney Boards site as I had forgotten to do it a long time ago :D

    Moved it from 10 posts/page to 20 posts/page. :)

    It is set to 20 posts per page on AA now. But if you ever want to increase/decrease that number you can do so in your user control panel under "Edit Options". It is near the bottom in "Thread Display Options".
