It's not just the size of the large threads, but accessing them. You'll find that if you want to start reading from page 5 or 10 of a 5k+ thread, our server grinds and groans, and most likely will not bring it up. There's also the auto pruning by snowboards. That's what's happening, too. The Get-In-Line thread in PSA has been auto pruned from the beginning, since it is posted to daily. 95% of my total posting in this thread has fallen over the edge, as snowboards has pruned the beginnings of this long thread where my posting was. Since most of the large threads in the board comes out of the bulging JCC, it makes sense to limit thread size. Other boards limit threads to 100 posties and then close them down. JGM has graciously offered to archive them to a board. Once archived, their link can be posted into the first post of your new Part II thread, or perhaps the last day's posting of the archived thread cut/pasted into the first posty for continuity. Anyways, because of snowboards limitations on the JC, we need to figure ways to work with them, not against them as it will then work against us.
