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.
In all honesty, if someone can prove that it does cause a lot of issues with the server, then by all means, lock it and let it die. But I just don't think it's the problem. Like matty said, it's the posting that is the issue, not the views.

Re: The Never Ending Thread Causing Server Problems?

Matty, SS, or any other mod go ahead and kill it. I promise not to create another one. I am all for the majority wins. If the majority feel that it is taking away from the site, then by all means go ahead and get rid of it. Those of us who want to chat late will just use PM's instead. I appologize for the moster and for the headaches that it may or may not have caused.

I only ask that if you do kill it that it is deleted entirely and not closed and placed in thread hell.

Thank You.

I think we may lock it on Sept. 9 at 12:01am as an honorary official mark to end the Redskins off/preseason and the first day of their 2007 season.

So I assume that the request to delete it is denied?

I can go with that. I'll miss the thread, but oh well.

ps- if the never ending thread is locked, I think the super happy fun thread should be locked as well.

question: Are you going to open it back up after the season is over? It can be like a thing.

See SS, I told you you didn't name it properly. It's going to end now, so it's not the never ending thread. LOL.
