If you don't know this trick, I thought I'd share it. It's all up to personal preference.
I've been doing this for a long time on here. I learned it on another forum using vBulletin.
If you're sick of having to "go to next page" all the time, you can change the number of posts per page. This is especially helpful on threads with tonnes of replies. The max posts per page setting is only 40, but it really cuts down on having to go to the next page all the time.
Here's how... look for the first step under the Raptors Republic banner.
Forum Actions (dropdown) -> General Settings -> Number of Posts to Show Per Page: (dropdown) -> Show 40 Posts Per Page
