DS - Limit of 20k Posts Per Thread?!

Postby spotify95 » Mar 17th, 2018, 23:21

Just checked a couple of DS' minor counting threads, and surprisingly, saw this:

That's strange - I thought that DS could quite easily go up to 50k or even further?!

Plus, DS FS used to create new thread parts for users, regarding counting threads, or leave a link at the very least - so what is going on?!

At least it still beats TSR's limit, but not here's admittedly as of yet unknown limit. :sly:


Imageeriously, life's too short to be worried about retards on an internet forum. :eek2: :eek3:

Indeed, 10k posts is very low (especially for busy threads in Forum Games!) and what they should have done is invested in upgrading the servers, to handle larger threads (such as 20k+), rather than putting an auto lock feature in. In many cases, the new thread isn't titled correctly and due to this, the link to the next part doesn't even work!

I'm sure we could have engineered a better solution to this problem...

Do you honestly think we will get to a million in one thread on here?

If the thread completes, than yes we could, though seeing as though this is a small forum and there's not too much in the way of content that will slow down the server then I can't see why this wouldn't be an issue.

Not according to the time estimate that the TSR'ians gave us (Markov, Phirstman, MR etc) regarding this thread.

Once I've seen more progress I'll ask them to run another check on estimating when your thread will finish :)

But nobody ever thought it'd reach 200k by Christmas or even overtake the TSR one, now by nearly 50k!!!! :eek2:

And by more progress, do you mean reaching 300k?

Zak reckons we'll be finished by about 2020.

Speaking of which, fancy adding even just one to CTAM here? ;)
