Great way to create an echo chamber and disincentivize people from giving likes to well thought out posts on opinions they don't want to promote.
I don't think it would be a very prominent feature. I just think there are times it could be useful for, like trying to catch up on quickly growing threads that you missed.

you come back to more than 50 pages of a thread "War in Israel."
Display 50 posts per page and it'll only be 16 pages :)

We need a feature that only displays posts with more than X number of likes (to be set by the user).

Imagine you were busy at work for two days and you come back to more than 50 pages of a thread "War in Israel." You want to see what the DDF thinktank had to say about it, but you don't have an extra 4 hours to read through 50+ pages. So you should be able to check off, "only display posts with more than X likes," and mark for example "3 likes," and you'll get about 5 pages of the liked content. Still too much? Mark "6 likes," and you'll get 2 pages of the most liked content.
Your posts wont go noticed in that case...
Whether you think you can or you think you cannot, you're right.

Is there a specific reason why email notifications don't come with links or pictures attached?
(If theres a link like this it will just show "this" and no link)

Would like to follow threads (show up in unread replies) without having ever posted in it. I can click "Notify" but I don't want email notifications.

Is there a mod that allows a custom list of newly replied topics, of the topics I choose?

(Similar to Show new replies to your posts, just you get to pick the threads)

Why does DDF have a mandatory 5 second wait between searches but no mandatory wait between posts?

@Dan @Something Fishy I propose instituting a mandatory delay of at least 90 seconds between posts, in order to possibly improve the level of some conversations (if they can even be called such at this point).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Actually, I think they both have a 5 second wait.

FTFY

I prefer the old amounts per page (especially since I mostly use mobile), mainly because it will better keep track of where I'm holding in a thread

Like em all, but I would change the posts to 50, not 40. These low numbers are from the dial up and 2g days.

Search is a short phrase. I don't know why you need a 5 second wait (except if it helps with weeding out bots) posts take time to type. And I really think it would help the quality if people need to wait and contemplate what they wrote. I would say 30 seconds at a minimum. Possibly as long as 90 seconds.

Are you suggesting this wait for posting twice in one thread, or even posting in 2 different threads? I could definitely envision a scenario where someone wanted to reply to 2 different threads within 90 seconds (maybe not 30), especially if they already had 2 threads open in 2 different tabs. 90 seconds is a long time.
