I noticed that the "All" option is missing for viewing all of the pages of a topic if there are more than 5 pages in a topic.

Maybe we are just commenting more, but I thought it used to always have "All" at the end. It's my favourite way to view topics. Is this an option that can be changed?

It's always been like that, I believe the forums forces pagination past page 5 in order to cut down on processing times server-side.

I Twitter. I also occasionally blog on the Escape Pod blog, which if you're here you shouldn't have much trouble finding.

Clicking all is great if you haven't started the topic yet, but once you're coming back to a topic, hit the New button.  It will then send you right to the first post you haven't read.  It's very convenient.
