ok, didn't know this, and it's likely a good reason to abandon the old way
(at least for the "default user", i.e. 99,999 % of all users)

yes, but this is what I would have to do now, because there is only one
"load more" button, while before I could have skipped the first 300 pages
in one go (by editing the url).

yes, this would be even better of course.
