Trinca: When you register, you get a little link behind each thread that lets you view the posts that are new since you last visited. Also there is the 'Last 25' link, that only shows the last 25 posts in the thread. Don't click on the thread title unless you actually want to see the entire thread.

Still, it would be swell if a paging function was available. 
I was doing it right like you, after I have discovered this forum :) After some days of downloading full threads to read what is at the end I found the "last 25" link :) 
I honestly do admire what Metl has done as far as his own forum but I must agree - from every point - usability and being well, user considerate - no paging is pretty atrocious! That and no search - Googling the site isn't that great of an alternative either. 
omg omg czg i never notest that... i must be sleeping... :| u right... 
I Would Be 
more than content if just the current high latency or occasional unavailability could be fixed. But I don't know how difficult that is ... 
It's fine, please just make it faster if you can, it's the only thing about func I don't like. 
If It's Not Broken, Leave It The Fuck Alone 
I like func's minimalism. Adding bells and whistles in the name of "usability" would effectively be just another thing getting between the user and the posts they want to type or read.

The typical PHP forum has crap people hardly ever use crammed into every spare pixel on the screen - you have links on the side of the screen, little layers of links on the top and bottom of each forum, each thread, each fucking post. Func eschews such bullshit and is much the better for it IMO.

I think a paging function would make func less readable and less useable, and that without the issue other forums face of directly linked images swamping the browser there's little or no reason to even consider it. 
Func Is Fucked. 
No offence to metl - he knows it, and we all know it, wherever it's hosted is fucked, it been utterly slow and unreliable for a week or more now. Loading the site and then this thread was 10 minutes each - but at least it didn't collapse with an error this time. 
I Say 
add paging and leave the rest of the interface alone. But goddamn MOVE IT TO FOV120 AND LET ME FIX THE DATABASE, metl =).

Seriously now. 
Yea Slime 
do eeeit! 
func_msgboard + vodka = func_msgboard russian? 
I Agree With BlackDoog that the forum's simplicity that has been inherited from the qboard days is something that makes it really attractive to me.

But still, a small text link, between this reply box and the thread, would not be frowned upon. Just a little Previous 25 Next 25 thing.

...actually I agree more with Sleepy now that I think about it... 
Aye, Tambien 
I�m fairly new to func but the first thing I thought when I arriced was "ah, simple - no useless crap all over the place! How refreshing!" 
This board design rocks. When it works. (Open during non-peak hours.) phpbb sucks. Ok, old posts could be easier to search. But hardly a big problem it poses.

Login, you should possess. By definitivites. Then just follow the yellows. Open in new tabs.

No pages. No old posts. No cluttery links. Soothes eyes. Func goodness. Thanks mr Fitz "metl" Gibbons. 

(my large 2cents) 
I wonder if the database was down becuase Trinca keeps loading the entire GA thread!

I'm talking to sleepy about a move, so sit tight. For now he's going to take a look at the php and sql for optimization ideas.

As for thread paging, this is a planned feature. I don't think it will clutter the interface too much.

As for the speed, it seems to have gotten faster in the past week, unfortunately the outages haven't stopped. 
Func In Phpbb Style 
would suck hard. wouldn't be the same at all.
the way it is now, it kind of feels more like a chat room / oldschool, with all the messages in no particular order - which is good.
func vs phpbb could be compared to quake vs nextgen games - the result is clear, isn't it? ;) 
I�m in south america - I�m always here on non-peak times. 
been to a party - forgettin what I want to say.

Bascily keep it like it is . . .

People always complain, its how we are, if it goes on for a donkeys age then fix it - but - why do so many people like this site in the first place? 
I thought that too. And then I thought; could the problems be caused by some evil forum attacks?

It's A Conspiracy 
by the g8.. or was it g7? Have you noticed ***** hasn't been here for a while? I bet they've captured him by now. 
This Forum Is The Best 
And it looks the best. And I love it. Please dont change it. Just make it work as before :)
About paging:
I sometimes load the full mapping help thread just to search if there are ready answers to my questions. With paging it won't be posiible I think. 
What are we saying here? (said with much panic in the voice) If I can't load the whole of the mapping thread I will simply... well... jeez, I don't know what I will do!

Don't do it... just... (I feel a song coming on...)

Stay as sweet as you are,
Don't let a thing
Ever change you.
Stay as sweet as you are,
Don't let a soul
Rearrange you.

Don't ever lose
The charm you possess,
Your loveliness, darling,
The way you say yes.

Stay as sweet as you are
Discreet as you are,
You're divine, dear.
Stay as grand as you are,
And as you are,
Tell me that you're mine, dear.

Young and gay or old and grey,
Near to me or afar,
Night and day I pray
That you'll always stay
As sweet as you are.

But give me access to the View All Threads and to the News Archive. 
should be optional in the user prefs if it gets added. I assume it would be easy to implement, but if it is, then a "posts per page" option is required. I like a lot of posts on the same page, since I can then use the inline find function in my browser to find what I'm looking for, rather than trawling through hundreds of pages one by one.

That's all.

Er, expect to say I love func but it's been a bit funced up recently ... BWAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA!


HA! Oh GOD!
