Hamsters are notoriously unreliable.

If it helps the site, I'm all for it. If big threads are clogging it, maybe we should open up a new spam thread and try to downsize or even delete the monster-sized threads?

Follow my train of thought for a moment:

1. The site performs slowly because the forum is filled with a ton of stuff.
2. Let's reduce the stuff in the forum!
3. We're Scrolls of Lore, we've written a LOT of words.
4. Wait, words don't really take up a lot of space. How could a modern forum struggle with just handling text?
5. See #3.
6. Okay, yeah, i get it, lots of words, but what about images? Shitpost memes, images from past PTR builds that aren't relevant anymore or should be archived elsewhere, the good old days of animated gifs in literally everyone's sigs... is that what's doing it?

^^^^^

THAT is the question I'd love to have answered. If the problem is culling old images, then that's one thing. If the problem is just that there's a literaly fuckton of old threads filled with tons of text, it doesn't matter that text has a small memory footprint on its own. If the vB code can't handle all that text properly, and THAT is what's slowing down the forum, then it's either we start deleting old words or we ask the question of whether new forum software would suit our needs.

Because I think it's reasonable to ask the question of "should we clean slate with new forum software in order to address performance issues?"

I sent him a tweet pointing him at this thread. He's been active on Twitter lately so he should see it.

At this point the site is a tomb, might as well leave it undisturbed.

Needless to say not a fan of deleting old threads but if it should be done then it should be done with nose scissors and not great big gardening ones. Delete very old threads that are not lore or discussion related and then work up from there.

Images are links so they don't take more place than a phrase.

Half of the posts are in the "General" and "Hall of Loaerderon" forums so you can cut slot without touching lore threads.

I mean, even the lore threads are like 60% bitching, and speculation from shit that’s already passed.

The Old Threads are holding us back. Not allowing us to achieve our full potential. They are dead weight dragging our site down in a torrent of lag.

Only in fire are we tested. Only in the purge are we purified...

And from the ashes we will rise stronger

If anything, my sizable ignore list speeds up the forum.

Can we focus on talking about the actual technical issues here, guys?

Or if we're just going back to cracking on each other, does that mean the technical issues really aren't ubiquitous enough to warrant a response?

Because if that's the case, fine, whatever, maybe I just need a new modem or something.
