    well my definition of large http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...784#post921784

    It's not just size in terms of number of posts, but activity level as well particularly the concurrency level of the forums. i.e. 10,000,000 post forum with only 5 members activity using the forums and searching would have no issues compared to 1,000,000 post forum with 2,500 users trying to view and reply to the same thread at the very same time or 2,500 users trying to search the forums at the very same time - it's all about concurrency for me

    vB users online is hard to guage due to cookie timeout out and can only be used as guide in combination with web stats of unique visitor counts as well as the number of mysql concurrent connections to the mysql server.

    Personally i'd consider

    - a medium large forum as any forum which has 500+ vB users online over default cookie timeout and at least 300-400 mysql concurrent connections (this is usually the threshold where most vB forums are forced to split to more than one dedicated server)
    - a large forum as 800+ vB users online over default cookie timeout and at least 400-600 mysql concurrent connections
    - a very large forum as 1,000+ vB users online over default cookie timeout and greater than 600+ mysql concurrent connections

    A mark would have to be established for entry though, such as 1 million posts, or by posts per week, or some other concrete number for admins to gain access.
    Agreed. I would think it could be available to boards with more than 500,000 posts maybe. I would definitely want to be involved as I have three forums of that size wih a fourth on the way, and I am continually working on speed and trying to prepare for the continued growth.

    I agree that this is long overdue!

    I'm in the process of moving from vb2.3 to 3.5.4 and re-doing all my hacks... the biggest headache will be to get search as good as I've customized it on vB2 (5.5+ Million posts)

    The info a forum like this would provide for Jellsoft is reason enough in my mind.

    I really don't understand why they don't want to open one. There are a LOT of vB's with > 5 million posts these days, and it's really a whole different app at that level.

    No offence Erwin, It's kind of you to offer, but I think it would be nice to have an outlet where prominent vB users can talk directly to the team - if it were on vB.org I don't think things raised would get across to the team as much if say, if it were here.

    I am happy to open such a forum at vBulletin.org (where I am admin) pending approval from Jelsoft of course.

    Theres such a section at TAZ which is a great 'unoffical' place to go

    However I think such a section here would be very beneficial, to help the vB team better understand big board admins needs.

    I think it could be a good read. I think our forum counts as big 200-600 online can get as meny as 1500 at times, only at 650k posts at the moment however we do have nearly 20000 registered users. Its running on a mostly dedicated server; thers a couple of other sites on their and we run irc and cs servers it does get very slow at times for no apparent reason.

    This forum may help me tweak it to be a little faster. Then again i'm sure the upgrade to vb3.5 will help a bit.

    Naturally

    LOL - We had this same conversation when we opened the Big-Boards Forum. For the most part, topics discussed it that forum only apply to big boards. And, like here, the administrators of the big boards post all over the place, not just within that forum. But they do like to have a private place to discuss topics of interest to Big Board admins. Premium members of the Admin Zone who do not run big boards are able to see the discussions but cannot post in them. Among other things, posting an article will get you into the Premium group.

    I agree. I don't understand why you have to have a "big board" in order to gain knowledge about how to run one in the future?

    Anyway, it's been a good resource for me as I run a big board.
