    posts per page

    is there a reason for only having 15 post per page? is it easier on the server or something technical like that i wont understand?

    i was just thinking, i kind of get annoyed having to click next page 6 times for some threads. even 25 posts per page would help this. nothing major, but the site is nearly perfect so its time to get nit picky.

    It truly is a user preference. I like to have it set at more than 15 so I don't have to keep clicking through the pages, but I suppose if you are on a slow connection, loading more posts per page could take a while and get annoying.

    Re: posts per page

    There are two benefits for us keeping the default to 15...

    1 - Each page load takes less resources on the server. With millions of page views each month, small things add up fast.

    2 - Ad revenue that pays to keep the site going


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    So when I'm bored out of my mind and keep clicking refresh I'm generating revenue?
