  • Huge vBulletin Board!

    The official LinkinPark forum has over 40000 members!!! Some topics have up to 1000 replies!!! Think about the server load!!! I just went to the site and I was amazed at the membercount!!! I just thought I'd mention it as it is using vBulletin

        WoW! I've seen the flashkit forum before, haven't seen the others before, I would love my board to do so well, but at the moment, with 166 members, it's just not working lol, and with only 100mySQL connections available it wouldn't work out, I can just about afford the situation I'm in right now, I could do with a few thousand members though

          well i guestimate the running costs for every 30,000 members it would probably cost you US$1000/mo to run the forum on proper hardware

          so 300,000 members ~ US$10,000+/month to run

          of course that's an guestimate

                  Impressing, very few german boards have around ~10,000 members or maybe more... guess web-communites are more an american/uk thing.
                  What do you think, could this be said?

                    that would be one heck of a member's list. I see where they have taken that button off their forums

                      Of course, flashkit is owned by Internet.com so they probably have no problem paying for it.

                            Linkin Park also uses vB on their other site for the LP Members. www.lpunderground.com. I am a member there and I recommend it to any LP fans. For 25 bucks you get a tshirt, signed 8x10 by all 6 guys, patch, 2 stickers, and the old ep before they were linkin park.
