New rule: 10k post limit for threads
 
As you may have heard about at some point, vBulletin has trouble with very large threads. From my naiive understanding, it essentially has to count every post in a thread when displaying it, so large thread put a huge load on it, especially when they're popular.

Because of that, I'm going to start experimenting with proactively closing or splitting threads that get to be too large. I'll always link back to the original thread in the OP.

If you happen to want to save me some time, it'd help if people intentionally choose to abandon those threads and start a new one once in a while like kstater has done with the K-State threads from time to time. Any mod can lock the old one with just a PM.

That is all. Now back to your regularly-scheduled programming.

Great idea. It should be one post more than whatever Pete's post count is. Make it so.

Maybe you should move all 10K+ threads to a large thread sub forum and lock them.

I actually thought about creating an "archived threads" forum. For now, I'm just linking them in the OP's. Creating another subforum is more effort than I care about for now.
