Yeah, I wanted to know this too. It would be pretty cool if we had the option to choose how many posts displayed per page.

I definitely like the additional posts per page. I'm generally always in favor of less clicking.

At the moment, this is not an option. All forum threads will display 30 posts per page. If enough users are in favor of the idea of choosing how many posts to display, however, this is something we can certainly take into consideration for a future release!

Thanks!

I support the option to change the number of posts viewed.

Great. Still no team debates, no T&S reform, and yet another fiddly update. When there's a lot larger and more important issues, it's like cleaning out a room by polishing the lamp, instead of getting rid of the sh!t on the floor.

I completely concur with this. Honestly the two most important things: 1) team debates and 2) ELO

No, the most important thing is letting me view only 10 posts per page.

what the hell? I'm all for being appreciative and all, and I'd probably be the first one to tell people not to complain, but this is just too much. Can you guys please stop making these frivolous and frankly, bad changes to the site?...and just work on getting us back the side panel and team debates?

Side panel isn't coming back. And, quit complaining, these are nice changes, if we really hate them, then they most likely will change stuff to make them work.

I don't think you realize that they perhaps might be working on those, but are just adding additions as they can? Did that thought cross your mind? Maybe it a lot more difficult than you think to make these changes you ever so want?

I want post editing, but give it awhile. Team debates I assume are really not easy to just implement, as are most of the things we want. Be glad they are even updating. It's nice, most everyone likes it, so shut your trap and stop complaining.

I appreciate the effort, but I really liked the ten posts per page.

Any chance of that coming back?

The above rant on rants assumes that your guys are working on this stuff....right?! O.o

Because, if this is taking time off working on that stuff, don't worry about it. Please add stuff we want then. But only if it takes time off the big stuff.

I also think it's a little... unusual that the "Challenge to a debate" appears under opinions you have submitted.

You can't actually challenge yourself (unfortunately), but I find it somewhat peculiar that it's there anyway.

Side panel isn't coming back. And, quit complaining, these are nice changes, if we really hate them, then they most likely will change stuff to make them work.
So they will change if people hate them... and they know you hate them by looking at your complaints... and you shouldn't complain... wut?

I don't think you realize that they perhaps might be working on those, but are just adding additions as they can? Did that thought cross your mind? Maybe it a lot more difficult than you think to make these changes you ever so want?
Basic math. Say it takes five hours to make team debates. It takes half an hour to make changes like this. 5h + 30min = 5h 30min.
I want post editing, but give it awhile. Team debates I assume are really not easy to just implement, as are most of the things we want. Be glad they are even updating. It's nice, most everyone likes it, so shut your trap and stop complaining.

I appreciate all the work you guys have been putting into this site but please tone down the small changes a lot. They are more so a nuisance than something beneficial.

10 post pages ftw!
