I know what you mean and it's a pain*in*the*ass. The limit 6 is just artificial for current performance optimization reasons (we've having a few hickups!), will be lifted soon. Also, the old feature IS the coming to be the next default in the next few days - no worries about that - but we had to do this in this order, since the next version isn't yet tested for performance.
Other things that are limited for performance reasons:
- my posts -screen (when you click your name at the top of the screen) only displays 6 posts / page. Doesn't display text-preview, like what you posted
- Threads are now rendering thumb-preview pictures on client side. Meaning, the small gallery thumb previews might seem broken, then load up suddenly
- The new Gallery -page doesn't yet display filtering by many other criterias that intended (like the model's site, MET / Galitsin etc).
- some statististics might jam or appear broken from time to time
When the rest of the feature are coming up? When the background tasks have finished, I guess this weekend. :)
