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.
