I used to have that option enabled until yesterday when I clicked on the drop-down menu and it reverted to just 25...

50 posts per page causes a lot of bandwidth usage (and costs therefore more money). I can imagine that for this reason the setting has been changed.

I thought the more text on one page and not spread accros many pages would cause less bandwidth useage - but I dont know a lot about this so il shut up

If there was more bandwidth available I would prefer 100 threads per page and perhaps 100 posts per page, saves flicking between pages so much - might be a bit hard on the 56k'ers though, but if it were just as a option...

Its not so much the bandiwth but the CPU usage, when we buy a better server, this will increase again.

So its a temporary sorry for now

Actually as long as the posts don't contain dozens of embedded pictures, it is far, far easier on dial-up users (such as myself) to have more threads or posts per page. One page load is easier on the system than three or four separate page loads. It makes for much quicker reading and surfing.
