I'm new here. Perhaps I'm blind, or maybe the option doesn't even exist, but is there a way to get more posts per page? Say, 200 rather than 25? I love reading old games, but having to click next page all the time breaks my flow.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Sorry, the option has been disabled to change the number of posts per page. The reasoning is complicated, mostly doing with tradition and uniformity.

However, I highly recommend downloading an extention that auto-loads pages (I use Auto-Pager for Chrome) for scroll-reading goodness.

I was afraid of that. I see most posters referring to individual posts by number, but I also see people occasionally referencing pages. Thanks!

For now you have to do it by hand, but it is possible.

Example: http://www.mafiascum.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=62&t=13720&ppp=200

Doing this will display the thread with a higher number of posts per page. There is an upper limit of 200 and a lower limit of 5.

Oops. Hit the wrong button there.

This is useful to know...
