<ake The Pages Longer...

Just a note to the brains behind the Saloon Put more threads per page---once a thread goes to page 2 it's toast. (Don't hijack the thread with comments about toast.)

Then explain why some topics are on page 200  mmmmmmmmmm mmmmmmmmmm mmmmmmmmmm

A topic usually becomes 'toast' when people no longer are interested in the topic.

I think we did make them longer before, but don't remember if we went back because of problems.

Hmmm...interesting idea. (But I think he means posts per page?)

Most threads do indeed have a life cycle. As people say everything they have to say on a topic, it tends to dissolve into banter and/or stop getting new posts....and yeah, this often happens around page 2 or so of the thread.

I've always assumed that this happened largely due to a simple lack of new ideas on a topic...everyone has pretty much said their peace and moved on.
Do you think more posts per page would extend the conversations?

I don't know about others, but I usually click on the 'new' icon, so it makes no difference how long the pages are, or how many pages there are.

I meant THREADS per page. Sorry for the confusion but I was into the alcohol and 420 posting that.

And toast---I like it buttery as hell and burnt to a crisp. With cheese on top.

I check in by clicking "Show unread posts since last visit" but I think more posts per page might be a good idea.

And now, the real reason I made a post (sorry Clint!):
