    so can a large board achieve a high Google's PageRank?
    The size really doesn't have much to do with it as PR is Google's interpretation of how important a page is. I've got a few PR5 boards and the one you just posted on is PR6.

    And its relevant since that forum has reach millions of post, surely Google has crawled lots of them, but the PR is low. So if I'm going to buy vBulletin, I will asked the question that I asked above.

    I have a long time history with vBulletin.
    Why not start your own thread then?

    Well, if you keep working on backlinks, submitting your site to other directories and SE's, then yeah why not.

    Well, I do administer my own hardware.

    As to MSSQL, that is not currently supported, and to be honest, I doubt that it ever will be. I think we'd sooner see a port to PostgreSQL (which was already done unofficially by a member a while back) which would help since it scales a bet better than MySQL (but is less common with web hosts).

    That said, the search problem can be bypassed by the use of an unofficial addon for the Sphinx search application.

    The two major ones are that you'll have problems with scaling of MySQL, particularly with full-text boolean searches and blocking queries, and you'll start to run out of available connections in httpd, leading you to use multiple web servers with a load balancer or to switch to a threaded or event-based web server.

    The site acts as if it is formatted with a NUKE theme....

    They have a number of individual 'micro' sites for each game... and skins look similar moving from game to game. I would think a theme based CMS such as nuke would suite this well.


    What sort of tools do you think would be emplyed to cutom build a site such as this? It wouldnt surprize me if it was custom... I have been reading about the potential security risks with the two nuke options.

    Very cool MoT3rror! Nothing to worry about in the sizing department then.

    At their gaming website :- http://www.gamebattles.com/ what sort of CMS system do you think they are using? It it a Postnuke/PHPNuke skin, or one developed by themselves do you think?

    started a topic Max number of users?

    Max number of users?

    Hi Guys,

    Already an existing user of 3.6.X - been running a board with only a few hundred users. No problems.

    However, considering a second board which will likely have a significant number of users.

    I was wondering what the expected practical 'maximum' number of users would be?

    Do you have any examples (links) of web sites with 30K+ users, and with several million posts?

    Many thanks

    Brit
