    Default Are you a page-topper?

    Why is it that so often when I reply in a thread, my post ends up as the first post on a new page? This always leaves me feeling like the guy that's talking really loud to be heard over a noisy stereo, and someone suddenly shuts off the stereo.

    I just looked through my post history. Excluding threads I've started, 17% of my replies have been first on the page. Considering that there's 10 posts per page, it should be around 10%.

    Anyone else experience this? Do the rest of you just avoid posting when there's a multiple of 10 posts in a thread, waiting for suckers like me to go first?

    You could increase the number of posts displayed per page in your settings.

    I am a page-topper, and the funny thing is that I have my posts-per-page set to 100. The number of times I've posted a post numbered X01 is just silly.

    Well, obviously. I get 17% at 10 per page, so you're going to get 170% at 100 per page. Do the math, silly.

    So this is the only trouble you get into while Toonia is away? Page-topping?
    (I suppose it is better than page-bottoming.)

    Get out there and raise some real ruckus / tuckus / whatever!

    Yup, that was 17 seconds that you no longer had to be responsible for!
