    Or instead of hassling O2C and possibly breaking the board, @Ron Paul could quit playing dumb and use the feature that's been available in every internet browser for 20 years.

    Your feature is very time consuming compared to a script.

    Ignoring the time needed by staff to install the script here for a minute, and only looking at the time invested by you, I'll still bet that using said script through the WF interface will take at least twice as many clicks as the simple 'save to file' function in your browser.

    You think that saving threads with 100+ pages will take two clicks huh?

    I did it when the Television Without Pity board closed. Yeah, it takes time, but if you're that sincere about grabbing your stuff up, it can be done.

    As others have subtly tried to get across to you in this thread, no one owes you a damn thing. And given the board went bonkers a few weeks ago when we tried killing the VR, I can imagine O2C isn't jumping at the bit to go through that again.

    If we wanted an easier solution is it possible to just temporarily increase the number of posts that a user can set to view per page?

    I have mine set to 50 posts per page. Seems like most people have it set lower than that.

    Installing the script is easy. And the script won't be making a lot of table moves, like deleting the VR did. It will simply be presenting the info in a fast easy manner.

    Those opposed to this don't seem to understand it. Guys, it isn't magic.

    Nor is File>Save as HTML.

    You would probably already be finished by now, rather than waiting for O2C to install the feature.

    I've been kinda busy with that whole real life thing for the past few days. I'm about halfway through looking through the add-on, making sure it does what it says on the label.

    I've successfully downloaded all of Ron Paul's information and sold it to Russian hackers.

    How many rubles did you make? And how much are you losing in the conversion rate? :ramen:
