I'm going to be "that guy" here for a minute...but I liked the forum the way it was set up before.
Probably it was because I was just more used to it than anything, but the 10 posts per page system let me gauge just how many responses there were. If I left a thread at 7 pages I could come back and see 9 pages and know just how far along the thread has progressed. This is no longer the case as it feels tedious to me to see a thread get bumped and have to scroll through 15+ responses before finding it.
Now, I'm not asking that we change it back to the 10 post system, as some users here apparently like that. All I'm asking is whether or not there's a way to give control of how many posts show up per page to the posters in their User CP. I guess AYB's the guy to go to and ask this.
If there isn't a way to do this and any change to thread-viewing would have to be an across the board change, then forget about it and I'll just swallow my dissent.
