    With so many of us getting onto broadband these days, I figured we should increase the amount of posts that appear on each topic page of the forums from 15 to 50. Just an FYI! :)

    Broad-band or . . ?

    Tony, does this mean that those stuck with dial-up will have to wait for 50 posts to slowly down-load before we can read the one at the bottom?
    (This is a wonderful site, so you won't keep me away that easily!)

    Hmm, well, I guess the answer would have to be "yes"...

    Without dial-up myself (and no QA team :mrgreen:) I really don't have insight into how long it might take to download 50 posts. I can reconsider the number though... Perhaps 25 would work better.

    Anyone else with input on the matter before I take any action? Thanks Mike for your input!!

    be kind to us with 56k or any dial-up connec. for that matter, I'm still old skool I guess since I ain't got high tech stuff like cable or dsl, but you can maybe reconsider and make it 25 post's per page. :) :D :wink:
    thanks, all of us with dial-up would greatly appreciate it.

    I was counting just now, It takes about 10 seconds for a full page to load with a 56k which isn't really that bad.

    Thanks for everyone's input! I am a man of mercy... :) It's now 25 posts per page. It used to be 15, but some threads have too many pages to them... so this should be a happy medium for now.

    Thanks again!
