    Default I just have a quick question.

    What's the problem with threads having a lot of posts? I see mods locking threads for "excessive length". Does it slow down the forum or something? Thanks.
    i'm just too awesome for a signature.

    It actually can, yes. I was apart of a forum a few years back that lost 10+ members due to forum speed. Another reason IMO is that once a thread reaches 500+ replies, all discussion value is most likely done and it becomes a spam fest.

    1) I don't think that's the case because usually only 20-30 posts load in the thread and not 500. The other 480-470 posts are irrelevent when loading.

    2) Depends on what is being discussed. Anime/Manga discussions and VG Discussions don't suffer from that, generally speaking.

    Every time you post in a thread, the thread creator gets a bit of gil. It's not very much, but if you manage to start like 3-4 threads that go on for a really long time, you can make quite a lot of internet points. The closing for length policy is mostly to even the odds a bit.

    It's also a bit hard to moderate 50 page threads.

    Speed wouldn't begin to factor into it, I think. At least not with threads that are under a couple of million posts.

    @Eris ....It depends on how long it takes a thread to reach 50 pages though.

    Nah, you get the same amount of points no matter how fast it takes to get 50 pages.

    Talking about moderating lol.

    If it reaches 50 pages in a day, yeah but in a month, I dont see it problematic. Lol

    I can't remember the exact number of posts the thread on the site had, but do you know the max number of replies a thread can get?

    Usually computer software breaks at numbers like 32768, 65536, 2147483648, or 4294967296.
