I want my 250 posts back!
De La Soul ^ | 8.11.04 | me myself and I

Posted on 08/11/2004 1:59:20 PM PDT by Xenalyte

So lots of changes to FR lately . . . and change is good.

Except for one change.

When I go to a thread - any thread - I can only see 50 posts at a time. That's not enough. I want as many answers per page as I can get - 250, the way it used to be!

I've gone to More, then to My Preferences, and set Views to 250. Several times.


TOPICS:
KEYWORDS: 250posts; beeber; cheese; freakychanges; hugh; limit; loggedin; moose; newfr; series; shower; wallofvoodoo

Yo Mods and Robinsons, what am I doing wrong?

And before the smartassedness starts, let me state that:
1. I am logged in
2. My sister has been mooseproofed
3. I took my shower last night
4. My base does not belong to you
5. This is a hugh series matter

Mock me, FReepers, and I swear by all that is holy, I will stune your beebers right off. ;)

Perhaps somebody spilled orange juws on your beeber.

Besides, the server wasn't expecting the Spanish Inquisition.

Somebody ought to complain about that, by gum.

I swear by all that is true that I was thinking about posting an exact word for word plea last night and decided to give it another day.

You broke before I did!

Too funny, like minds to the "T".

It also seems like there are A LOT of threads with no description when you are viewing the main screen. They just have the title and source, but no description. Is it some do-not-post-from-our-site-thing?

Which part of

"overload"

is difficult to understand?

Actually, I don't mind that one--or really the following, that much--however,

My total posts were up over 95,000 or so. And now they are down around 21,000 or so.

I may not be Hemmingway or Faulkner or C.S. Lewis, but it's still kind of nice to see a moderately accurate number!

I'll complain about it.

It also happens when you (or at least, when I) browse all messages.

It seems to be that the Preferences setting for "Headers Only" or "Message Bodies" isn't working. I have Message Bodies selected, but I only get headers.

I never really paid any attention to how many postings I've had. I've been on here pretty much daily since 98/99. First as a lurker of course. Lost my first ID in the big format change and have been running under this monkiker ever since.

Fairly certain it should be more than just a paltry 7,000 posts. I guess I never realized that I have never, ever, initiated a thread though.

This doesn't make me passive/agressive does it?

Mock me, FReepers, and I swear by all that is holy, I will stune your beebers right off. ;)

Actually, I admire your ambition.
I was somewhat annoyed when the settings changed my number of replies per thread from 100 to 50.
I was gonna gripe about it, but just figured "oh heck, what's the use?"
Thanks for having the gumption to rant for our rights!
