Size control and restrictions

Post by grinvader »

Hello fellow zboarders.

Due to my checking something due to a hunch, I now declare that threads will be limited to an amount of replies still unclear above 480 and under 880. Let's play it safe and put it at 500 replies.

When a thread gets close to this, it will be locked and kept stickied if it was, but a new thread should be used for further discussion.

Thank you for listening, good night.

EDIT: I think the General nonsense threads that do not hold any critical data can be exempt from this rule. For now.

Neither did I. Oh well, as stated before, weak server is weak.

Do we need to dust off the _Demo_ sign that one of us projects to the night sky, or what?

Seriously, I think someone else also needs to have the keys to the server, so to speak.

Why, _Demo_ comes by IRC almost daily. If we need something, we can ask him.

Something of an emergency backup situation. I've had similar troubles in the past(I was an admin at a ROM site for five months back in the day...), and been members of forums which had similar problems in the past.

If needed, admins can make backups of this forum's database.

<Nach> so why don't the two of you get your own room and leave us alone with this stupidity of yours?

I don't believe slowdowns are the main issue.

They aren't. Big threads just have too many posts and cannot be worked on (since that implies putting all posts on a single page).
