I guess I have to repeat myself. One massive thread is more of a problem then several hundred tiny ones.

One thread with a 10,000 entries is much more prone to causing a database error then multiple threads with 100. Also, keep in mind it's not just plain entries you're dealing with. It's also the attachments, the users associated with each post, and the other various details the database has to keep in perfect order to work.

As far as I can tell there are two thread right now that cater to the *NA audience. So they don't object to the content so much as the person who tried to start them again possibly.

Personal experience having to manually go through and try to remove just the damaged portions of a database to save the rest of the site. Whether you believe me or not is not my problem.

Moderation. Ugh.

There should definitely be moderators so there is someone to complain to if someone gets abusive. But as for moderating topics, what a bad idea for a message board like this one.

And as for not letting new people start a thread until they have 'X' posts--well, that just punishes those of us who a) don't have the time to park on the forums all day and b) don't post unless we feel we have something to contribute.

If a thread is out of place on these message boards (hard to imagine, though) or if it's a duplicate of something else that already exists, or it's just stupid newbie garbage, it will naturally fall off the front page through attrition.

If you want a good example of moderation taken to ridiculously bad extremes, visit the View Askew boards. If you dare start a new thread there on a topic anyone else has mentioned in the whole history of the whole history, you will get pounced on.

This isn't NASA, if you haven't noticed, and it's retarded to compare the two.
