Not 160 pages of quotes mind you.  Wink

The quote test was only on the last 3 1/2 pages.  Wink

The entire mess can be viewed here:
http://205.252.250.26/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1237965482

It started life as one thread, and then just continuously morphed to achieve certain goals.  Grin

It started life as a thread to find a new Moderator,

then it was hijacked for the purpose of reaching 1000 replies in a single thread,

then we decided to reach page 100,

finally, we just decided it should never leave the front page of the board it was on.

We've started a part 2, to keep it's spirit alive.   Cool

The post character limit is set at 12k,  but I think I may have worded what happened incorrectly.

The members were seeing how many times you could keep on quoting,
and then someone had made 12k post with the intentions of quoting it,
but it instead locked the last page of the thread up when he hit the post button.

The actual page that the 12k post was on could not be accessed,
but the previous 160 pages were OK.

We had well over 30 quotes going before it started showing any signs of stress. 
I should mention that this was a pure spam thread and served no practical purpose what so ever other than to provide a place for abstract humor.  Wink

We've voluntarily decided that 161 pages, and 2400 posts is our new official limit.  Cheesy

Got to love the YaBB!!!!  Smiley

We also found that the quote feature, does indeed have it's limits


  I sure hope so !  2 or 3 of your users quoting 12k again and again wouldn't be good for reading !
  You state a thread locked due to a 12k post.  What is the limit you have set in the Admin Center for posting characters ?  (Curious)

We finally managed to kill our thread.  Cry

At post 2400 someone made a 12,000 character reply, and locked it up.  Roll Eyes

I was able to split the offending post out, and restore some functionality to it, but then locked it to be on the safe side.  Grin

We also found that the quote feature, does indeed have it's limits.  Wink


ps- I'm kinda hoping we switch to the 2.5, it looks really nice!  Cool

I'm glad to hear that then!  Smiley

Currently, on our board of 35,000+ members, and 1,150,000+ posts, no other other topic even comes close...

Great job your team does, thanks again!  Smiley


(I never realized how much I would miss seeing who's in the topic with me, it's been a while since I've posted in a YaBB board as a regular member.  Grin  Wink )

What is the maximum thread size?

Greetings all!

I was wondering what the maximum size a thread can be,
before it starts presenting any issues.

Specifically, the number of pages or posts within a single thread.

We've got a rather large one that's been active for well over a year, and I'd rather close it down before it causes a potential problem.

I imagine if there is any issues,
it would more than likely be from hardware limitations
rather than the software, but I wanted to check just in case.

Our board is running YaBB 2.4   Cool

Thank you any & all replies.

ShaneG  Smiley
