Concerning Monster Threads (Over 2,000 Replies)

The varied peoples of Middle-earth at times found unity in their pursuits, and all too often experienced deep rifts. Engage in lively conversations as we banter about the differences between the Alliances, and recruit for our People as well. Remember, keep it friendly.

Concerning Monster Threads (Over 2,000 Replies)

Jonathan and Ted, after following the slow database queries on the server, noticed that it's those massive threads that can kill the server. Translation to those of us who don't speak Techie: when a thread goes over 2,000 replies it drags down the database and contributes to the crashes, errors and time-outs we get.

We know that there are many longstanding Alliances, Guilds, RP's, etc. which are much cherished. To that end, we're requesting that you start a new thread when the original goes over 2,000 responses and encourage your participants to post in it (For instance, The AMMM League, Part II). You can ask a mod to lock the old when once you've started the new.

Thank you all in advance for your cooperation in this matter. Hopefully we can cut down on some of the drag we all experience by making use of this simple technique.
