Posts in a thread more than 999? Empty Posts in a thread more than 999?

I was wondering if there is a way to increase the amount of max posts in a thread. Right now, when you hit 1000, it locks, closes and splits the thread. This is pretty kind of a issue, as many of my threads are going to go past 1000 posts. Is there a way around this? And if not, why is this?

Well that is the limited and to tell you the truth any thread that exceeds the maximum amount is a heck of a thread. but what you do is. you edit the last post of the thread with the link leading to the new thread where it's continuing.

then if like you can even make that a sticky for your members to know to continue to that thread.. or they will simply see the link leading to it in the last post of the first thread.

thats about all you can do. i mean i would prune a thread that big. who in the world is going to read or catch up on over a 900 replies comments in one thread.. but thats up to you.. obviously it's a hot thread. so as a admin i would just edit the link in the last post leading to the new thread, and once again since it's so popular i would make the continuing thread into a sticky or announcement thread for your members to know.

Thanks for the info. Each round of our forum game easily takes up 990 posts, so I was hoping there was some way around that.

Is there any reason why this limit was placed?

dunno thats just the limit. but they do continue. so just be sure that your members know where it's continuing too and there should be no problem with it Smile

that must be one hell of a game to take up that much space per round though.. Wow rock

Yeah, it's an interactive RPG/forum game. I think last round was 900+ posts, and we'll probably end up with around 1200-1300 this time.

Thanks for the info, was just seeing if I could "buy" room for more posts or if that was it. We'll deal. Appreciate it!
