Some of the older threads on the site get REALLY long, and at times it becomes a pain to know what's going on in a thread because everything is just in a big list. Some other forums I use split posts into pages and have options to set how many posts to see per page, and it honestly makes things much easier to navigate, since you can read through threads more like a book and remember what page you're on instead of remembering one post in a single big line.

Has this been considered before, or is it even possible? Or is it already an option and I can't read? I'd love to know.

While newer BOINC website software does this, ours does not. It's not clear how difficult this would be to implement. It's also not clear whether people would prefer a paginated forum. Some people would rather see everything at once than have to keep hitting "next".

I would greatly welcome paginated posts. While sometimes non-paginated can be nicer for being able to read a whole thread from top-to-bottom, pagination has huge benefits when attempting to find any information in the middle of a lengthy thread, or remembering your place if you need to stop reading partway through and come back later.

I've also experienced loading issues when trying to view some of the longer threads on mobile.

Happy as it is, never wished for pages - breaks it up too much.

As far as loading issues on large threads, that mostly goes away if, like me, you turn off badges, avatar images and signatures in the Community Preferences. Big threads with a lot of embedded images still take a long time, though.

Of course, for long threads, sometimes you are only interested in the newer posts, and then under Community preferences you can specify how many posts to load initially if the thread length exceeds some customizable size. /JeppeSN
