You need more moderators and Cut the number of pages down to 10 per thread, then start new thread plz! Most of the comments are 1 liners and the threads go all over the place I know these forums are young and under funded but 551 pages on one topic is insanity!

I don't mind all of the pages, I just wish when I scroll all the way to the freakin' bottom of the threads, choose one, and then go back, that the page would automatically flip back where I left off. Instead, it starts at the TOP of the thread list again and I have to scroll all the way back to the bottom to where I started.
Does that make sense?

I'll verify that I'm getting the same problem with Firefox.

I get that with Firefox but not with IE.

Fail.

Few things are more annoying than an arbitrary thread length limitations. Trust me, I've seen it done, and it never turns out well...

Hehe.

I meant that ironically, that Kaeyoss had beaten it to death with his little spam.

Well, when a thread gets to 8,000 posts in length it starts doing weird things to the website.

Interesting. I am on FireFox myself and when I come back to a thread it takes me to the newest thread. I usually click the "43 seconds ago" part of the link, though I have no idea if that matters. Also I'd guess you should make sure you're logged in.

I'd suggest quoting his posts in your post something like this:

It also does it in an individual thread. For example, if I scroll all the way to the bottom of this thread, then hit back, then forward, it'll reload this thread, but it moves me back to the top of the page.

Well 5 seconds of experimentation reveals that if you click the '2 hours and 3 minutes ago' part it takes you to the last thread. Clicking back and forward takes you to the top of a thread.

You can also click 'X new posts' in a thread you've been to and it will take you right to the first one posted since you were last here.

Honestly considering all the above I really can't see what the fuss is about. If you want to cut back on the clutter you can focus things down to just the sections of the forum your interested in as well.

All 1 minute and 32 seconds worth of experimentation was done in Firefox...YMMV.

I don't beat to death. I gently flog to death with scented shoelaces.

I think they're talking about refreshing and back paging. When you use IE, if you refresh, you stay at the same point on the page, which makes looking at the "Recently Posted" column more convenient. When you use Firefox, it goes to the top of the page when you refresh.

It may be the only thing I've noticed IE does better.

You're lucky you're in Canada. It's probably legal there.

Legal or lucky?

Spoiler:

The actual act, exchanging money for sex is legal. However everything else in the transaction is illegal (running a brothel, soliciting in public, living of the avails of prostitution, transporting someone for the purposes of etc..

It gets an air of legality because the larger cities like Vancouver are lax about enforcing the law. The mayors in Vancouver for the last little while have been half-assing some harm reduction plans. Not sure what the current mayor has planned for dealing with all the tourists and media for the Olympics.

Just kidding. Yep. I'm in Canada.

Hadn't heard about the happy endings though. Guess I just read the wrong magazines.

I must confess that it's not born of my mind. As so often, I draw my inspiration (read: liberally steal lines) from master Pratchett.

Admirable - the way the forums managed to turn this from a (in my opinion pointless) request to arbitrarily limit tread length to the fine points of the law regarding happy endings.

Ah-Hah! More evidence that what this place needs is fewer posters. And, the best way to achieve that goal remains, as always, to give me the unfettered, absolute, non-appealable power to ban anyone any time I please.

I respectfully suggest that these powers be granted to me immediately.

Of course, I already possess these powers. However, in my infinite wisdom (and a sense of mercy to you insects), I choose not to use them.

Seems to be a pretty shaky conclusion. I'd not be surprised if it where over turned on some kind of appeal.

On the other hand there is currently something of a movement to legalize Bawdy Houses, which are defined as anyplace you have sex for the purposes of prostitution more then once - a Car for example or an alley way (as was pointed out above, in Canada prostitution is legal - as long as you communicate the transaction via telepathy or astrological card reading and consummate the transaction in an alternate dimension). That said there is a significant move toward legalizing Bawdy Houses. The middle class benefits as the prostitutes are taken out of sight and out of mind. The state benefits because its easier to keep tabs on the practitioners. The prostitutes themselves benefit because they are safer and can more easily organize. The downside is it makes the whole life style easier and potentially increases the number of people that choose to become prostitutes.
