Thread "Limits"

Going back to when the original Teens thread was locked because of the massive page number, which got to around 4000, I have a question concerning that.

When should the other threads be closed, like around 1000 or so?

We closed a couple threads when they got close to 20,000 posts, as I recall.

So that's around like 1400 pgs or so?

That depends how long the posts are.

What we've done on a couple of other forums I moderate is roll the thread over at 50 or 100 pages.

Just create a new thread with the same title and lock the old one on those massive threads. They're unwiedly anyway, slow the database performance, are slow to search and really, does anyone go back to page 278 of 1245?

So it's a good approach to just roll them over in my experience.

I though the same thing.

Well I exaggerated slightly. There WERE 2 forums I moderated. Now 1. it was suggested I should 'stand down' from one of them... ;)

You gotta stand down for ego, but your ego's not really the enemy? ;D
