Default Threads Per Page

I'd venture to say that 90% of all BC Members have DSL/Cable. With this being said I dont see why we cant have 40 threads per page vs the normal 25, some subforums have more than 5 stickies so only the last 20 threads are displayed, with a forum as popular at BC, important topics may be missed a bit.

I know this was brought up before, but I'm just throwin in my 2 cents

Screen resolution needs to be considered also. I have my res set much higher than most and the forum is very workable.

Leave it alone. It'* a known e-marketing technique thingy that if a page is too long, people won't read it. Which would prevent new membership.

New membership is good. I'm tired of reading the normal peoples crap....

um bill

1280x1024?

I'm pretty sure willwren has 1920x1200 on his "dell precision workstation wannabe that has an HP badge on it"...

Maybe 35 would be ok. Its not going to bog 56k at all. its the pictures that do that.

I agree. I'm a member at other boards where the user can make that selection in his/her profile.

Personally, I'd keep it what it is, if the option was made available. You can't go wrong with ol' reliable.

QFT. I have 50 PPP on another site (VBulletin) and i LOVE it, especially if you're trying to follow a topic. Text and what not isn't an issue for bandwidth capped users, it'* just different sigs/avatars etc. If the same person posts twice, you're also only loading it once.

come to think of it, I would rather have more replies/posts per page than threads per page.

again still user selectable
