In progress How many posts in a thread before original posts get deleted

Post by Derri on June 1st 2012, 6:43 am

Well we have a small games section in our forums and recently we noticed the original posts were getting deleted every time a new post was made.

We are therefore wondering how many posts before this begins to happen?

They do not get deleted. The original topic will get locked and a new topic will be created automatically when you reach the limit.

Well the were disappearing. From my forums starting posts because I was watching it happen for awhile to be sure. Anyway it is a game so it's not the end of the world.

So I have a few question about that link Nera kindly provided.

1) When it says the basic limit for messages is 8 million is that overall messages? from every forum and every category.

That gizmo guy wrote this
The basic capacity for all the forums is 8 million messages, it can be increased to 4 billion if you exceed it...
2) If you reach 8Million messages, what happens? Will it automatically be increased to 4 billion messages? Or do you have go through some process to get new limits?

3) What happens if you exceed the 4 Billion?

Depending on the answers to the following questions, I will then ask more questions.

Anyway thanks...

Nera, wanted you to see this.
Messages in a subject: 990 messages (once the limit reached, the subject is locked and splitted)
Once 990 posts are reached in a thread, the next posts are added in a new thread.
