Biggest nodebb Community forum?


  • I don't think ours is the biggest, but this needs to have some starting point.

    Qt Forum http://forum.qt.io
    21 000 users
    270 000 posts in 54 000 topics

    My guess is that gaming some forum dwarfs that by on order of magnitude.


  • @tekojo Are you using redis or mogodb? If redis, how much memory do you use?

    Thanks

    Not the biggest but only 2weeks on nodebb, still testing the system

    Not the biggest, but we started completely on NodeBB and did not port any posts or users from anywhere else. We've grown from user number one to over 76,000 posts completely on NodeBB. We have a single thread that has topped one million views now.

    We are on MongoDB.

    We may actually be the biggest in active traffic. Hard to say. No site that I have looked at appears to have the activity level that we do. The ones that are bigger are bigger because they are old and came from non-NodeBB. Our posting rate and view rate might be the biggest. That is hard to gauge. But we have been known to have multiple hours averaging more than 10,000 views per hour, which is decently high, with very high active posting activity.


  • @Minghui-Yu we use both redis and mongo to get clustering benefits. It's a cloud setup with a couple of front ends. We don't actually use a lot of memory, as clustering takes care of that.

    @scottalanmiller your traffic amounts are bigger than ours. And yes, our numbers are bigger because we moved over to NodeBB (Excellent choise that started out as a lunch table discussion about what a colleague had seen on the net the previous evening)

    @scottalanmiller Woo, 10k visits an hour, awesome!

    How many processes do you use? v0.5.x was much less scalable, and you'd need 4-6 (or more) processes to handle, but that kind of load can be handled on 1-2 processes now, since v0.6.x.

    I have a feeling I've asked you this before...

    Believe it or not, just using one! Even at 10K per hour, we don't notice any latency at all. We have the advantage of not needing Redis in this setup so we get a little speed boost from that. We can scale up quickly if needed, but we figure we'd need to be over 30K per hour to see any latency.

    Awesome to hear 😄 Node's event loop coming in handy for all the I/O work forums tend to do

    Yeah, it is crazy fast. Even on the longest threads with nearly ten thousand posts we have no issues.


  • @exodo Very nice forum and slick design.

    I see you have theme that is very traditional forum like. Is this a theme that is available here. Did you get it custom made? How much did it cost?

    Hope you will have the time to reply.

    is custom made, cstom work , 0€ just self time
    is it on github however only works with 0.7 and older versions due to nodebb changing a lot of things on newer updates

    btw we redoing it for 1.0 and beyond and will be public if someone want to use it but it will have a few changes to make it easier for future updates
    the old one was based on vanilla and this one will be persona fork

    Is there a prize for the smallest active one?

    12 users, 14.6 k posts in 232 topics, with 2.3k views a month.

    I just transferred / deployed my forum last month, but is about 5 years old


  • @Bri give us a link. Just seeing stats is no fun...

  • Community Rep

    @vij I could, but it's a closed, private forum, so there wouldn't be much to see 🙂


  • Still curious about this.

    exo.do 930k posts
    Bethesda.net 560k posts
    Mangolassi.it seems to be at 330k posts now.

    is at 300k

    You would think that there are sites out there that crossed the 1MM mark?

    Yup, ML is just about at 330K

    A lot of the busy communities imported posts from elsewhere so may not have an ingest rate to get them to 1mm quickly. Hard to say. Seems like Exo will be there in no time, though.

  • Community Rep

    An interesting comparison of ML and EXODO, look at the past month popular posts. I think EXODO gets a lot more threads, ML gets a lot more posts per thread. But EXODO might have a lot of historically imported posts, so maybe they aren't that busy per day?

  • Should be easy to figure out.

    was posted today
    was posted September 23th 2016
    I.e. 100.000 posts in 320 days = 312 posts/day

    was posted today
    October 27th 2016
    I.e. 100.000 posts in 286 days = 350 posts/day

    BTW this led me to an interesting bug in NodeBB. This URL:

    Shows me an error that I can't view this topic but the topic title is shown in the URL.
    Edit: This seems to be a bug in a plugin that @exodo installed/created? Can't replicate this on a clean install.

    @bartvb +18? Maybe you just need to login 😄
