    I'm in... Not to be an "elitest" or anything, but I'd also like to see an appropriate forum description added so people with 50,000 posts don't think their forum is "large" and lower the s/n ratio. Maybe 2 million+ posts, and 500+ concurrent users? Thinking back, that's when we had to start thinking in new ways about resource utilization.

    Maybe even be a posting-restricted forum? VB staffers and large forum owners/admins have posting permission, but still publically viewable.

      AVS Forum and TiVo Community Forum would like to concure. We large Vb users really do need a place to chat on topics that are more of an issue to large operations of the Vb platform.

      Thank you kindly for the consideration. (Would be nice to get out of it all being in mostly one thread. )

        I agree completely that there needs to be a forum dedicated to larger forums and their issues.

              Add my vote as well. I'd regularly browse such a forum area to see if there are any tips I could pick up. Much easier than wading through a lot of issues that come up on smaller forums and not knowing if they apply.

                Or maybe even some codehacks that can help achieve better multi-server implementations.

                  A companion "Large Forums" section over at vb.org would be ideal. I know how the vB staff feels about modifications to the code--it would be their call on what they would/would not allow in terms of modified code in this section. Good thing is, if posted here, they might see one of our hacks and implement it in the final version.

                  We hit our brick wall on our old dedicated server when we were around 1 million posts, but only had maybe 350-400 users online. We're on the new server now, but hitting the wall with 1.5 million posts and 500-600 users online. We're tweaking things and considering archiving old posts, which will help, but I feel that once you're on a dedicated server, you're already "big board" material, in that you're using too many resources to be in a shared hosting environment, and you forsee growth potential. With dedicated hosting, too, we have more options available to configure our own settings (like my.cnf), where under a shared hosting arrangement, we are pretty much locked into standard settings our host offers us.

                  IOW, we may not want hard limits to determine what constitutes a larger forum, but you're right--we also don't want someone with a small forum on a shared server posting here, even if the reason is that there is not much we can offer in the way of advice!

                              John has brought the topic up and we're still trying to decide what to do, should we provide a private forum for larger boards and post code hacks / modifications to let them try performance things out or a public forum.

                              The problem with the public forum is that posting changes would violate our own posting rules of no code hacks

                              Maybe a public forum and then a sub forum for modifications.
