Re: The Never Ending Thread Causing Server Problems?

That never-ending thread does suck. I thought it would calm down when the season started but I guess not.

Matty, why can't you just pretend it's slowing the site down and can it?

It's hard being bitter all the time, isn't it?

As soon as you can it, you know another one is just gonna pop up.

Unfortunately you're right. It'd be great to put that thread to sleep. But then someone will just start it right back up again.

Re: The Never Ending Thread Causing Server Problems?

I admit I have had some fun on The Never Ending Thread. I knew a thread against that thread would start soon. I'm actually surprised it took this long. I am indifferent, although I will say if only 5 or so people ever post on it and it slows down the site for hundreds of other users, then it should go bye-bye.

I smelled marijuana smoke coming from the never-ending thread the other night.

Re: The Never Ending Thread Causing Server Problems?

I posted on the never ending thread a very long time ago. I think a little bit of everyone is included in it.

I don't see the problem when normally we are only posting at night when most of you are asleep.
When I get the server busy message it's during the day, or peak times, and no one is using the never ending thread.

So there are no problems with it, or the functionality of this site because of it.

PS- You're more than welcome to come and discuss anything you would like too.

I don't understand the hate associated with the thread.
Fact is, 95% of the posts on that thread are after you are all in bed. It has ZERO affect on this site.
Matty already explained it's not about viewing, it's about posting. There are 5 times as many posts about Brunell hating that slows the server down. I don't recall the server being too busy because of the never ending thread.

I honestly think it does cause problems for the server every time someone views the thread.


The site is based on queries. each page has a list of PHP commands that query a database on the server. Every time someone opens the thread, the server has to calculate how many posts there are, how long is each post, How many post should be displayed per page, How many pages and so on.

In theory, 1 person opening that 5000 post thread uses as much computational power as 1000 people opening a 50 post thread.

It's been years since I've done any PHP/MySQL programming and i've never installed Vbulletin; Please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

The server probably has more than enough power. Matty is probably correct when he says viewing the thread doesn't cause problems.

btw, There's no hate for the thread content, just the number of posts in it.
