PostPosted: Wed Dec 06, 2006 9:57 pm    Post subject: Announcement: Thread Length Reply with quote

Long threads cause numerous problems, such as the recent crash caused by "Ignore This Post". Well before that length they cause system slow-downs. As a result, a new policy is being implemented by the TH sysadmin and enforced by the Moderators which limits threads to 125 pages. At that point, the thread will be locked and a new one started. We are not anticipating going through all current and older threads at this time, though if long old threads resurface they will likely be pruned.

It is suggested that, once a thread hits 100 pages, contributors consider starting a new one themselves (ITP II, or something).

Thanks for understanding! - Moderators
