Re: Chat Threads that shouldnt exist

would be 36k less, but that's not the point

the forum is much slower than before and those threads can be one of the reasons. if it's really that, then delete them for the sake of it

Re: Chat Threads that shouldnt exist

I like this idea actually, the past days I really notice how slow this board is and if there is a solution for it... and I never saw the idea of all those numbers had some nice discussions with Daniel about that

On the other hand I think that even if these threads are closed, they will find a different way to increase their number of posts.

Re: Chat Threads that shouldnt exist

I highly doubt removing those threads will affect the response time on this board. I will say I'm 99.99% sure.

The 2 numbers games thread together has more or less the same number of post compare to Adam's chat thread and definitely take up less space as the posts are short.

Only Steve can answer

I don't know the networks or have access to them. My computer knowledge tells me if the response time is that slow, the size of the database is usually not the source of trouble.

Re: Chat Threads that shouldnt exist

And what about closing (chat) threads automatically when they reach a certain amount of posts, like 5000 posts? Would that help?
I have no clue of all those things, I'm just asking. It seems to me it would be fairer than just singling out 2 or 3 threads. People start a new thread then ("The name game II"), that's no problem, I've seen that on other boards.

(And what about Spy? Is that using a lot of ressources? It's totally useless, frankly.)

Maybe change 5000 to at least 20K or so. You can reach 5000 posts in one week

But I agree with the idea, a maximum number of posts for a thread sounds nice. But I've no idea either if that kind of thing work.
