What's with the Limit for posts in a thread?????

Post by bob8972 on May 31st 2009, 7:21 am

First topic message reminder :

Really what's the point of a limit for the max. number of posts that a thread can hold.
A thread can only have 990 posts, and it automatically locks, and starts a new one.
Is this even necessary? I sure don't think so!
Let the people choose if they want a limit for posts for their forums threads or not.
Cause it's annoying how, whenever a thread on my forum, or any other forum for that matter, starts becoming active, popular, and loved....but OH NO, it has 990 posts, time to lock that one and make a new topic.....seriously i don't want that...and i'm sure most of you don't ether. Even if your forum isn't all BIG right now, then later, it gets tons of new, and active members, and some threads get tons of posts in them each and everyday, but they always lock by themselves for having 990 posts in them and starts over again....you will find it annoying, trust me.
I can understand limits for the other stuff....but for posts in a thread? No thanks??!!?

You want to take off the thread posting limit; Yes or No?
You decided!

You can, but it locks itself again anyways, doesn't matter what you do, once that topic has reached 990 replies, then you can't do anything about it.

Voted yes. I know another forum which is basically a spam dump. We treat it like a chat room. xD It does get annoying though when we have to start new threads. I hasn't affected my site yet, but I know it will.

Voted yes. This would just annoy me beyond all possible reason if it was a popular debate thread or something like a sticky where members have to or would like to post in. I think the limit is pointless and don't understand why it's even there.

The limit is pointless as it creates multiple topics with the same title and therefore it provides wrong results when we use the search command. :/

Please remove it or give us the option to define it !!!

Just throwing this in here.

I have merged threads before, and got over 1500 posts in it. In this case, it doesn't lock, but a vast majority of the beginning pages disappear. (Only to reappear after being split again.)

Sometimes it takes time before it is split and locked.
