Longest Thread Yet



  • Is this the longest one? We have been waiting to hit the landmark 10K posts. And we just did it minutes ago. Not a very meaningful thread, but epic in length and views (but not the most viewed every, second as far as we know.)

    10,000 posts in a single thread

    Feel free to pop in and contribute? ML is a technical community so perfect place for NodeBB admins to hang out too! And a great place to push the performance limits of NodeBB.

    Awesome, @scottalanmiller !

    One of my earlier memories of forum softwares of old was how vBulletin would crash after a thread reached a certain number of pages (1024 posts, perhaps?) :smile:



  • At 1.4m views too, heading rapidly towards 1.5m. It remains quite busy.

    @scottalanmiller good job. Probably yes, the longest one. Is it running smooth?
    We have 34 volumes of flood right now but we close it at 1k posts each thread.



  • Very smoothly. No issues.



  • Why are you closing the threads at 1K each?

    Haha I was wondering the same thing. Perhaps it's just a holdover from old forums? Old habits die hard, I suppose...

    people like it that way, also in mongo i see a bit of delay loading big threads



  • Congrats to your community!

    ..But it takes few minutes to see the last post of this thread. Is it a usual behavior of such long threads in nodeBB? It should be instant for a viral forum.

    What do you mean? It's effectively instant for me.

    We are on Mongo and we use the longest threads many times a day and they load just as fast (basically instantly) as the short ones.

    Do you use websockets?

    Yes, is there a way to avoid them with NodeBB?

    Sure. We use polling because of cloudfare lack of websocket support



  • I see. No still on WS. We don't use CF as there just isn't that much to catch, would not do very much for us.

    Yeah no need for caching. Hides your ip though


  • Admin

    Yeah if you're on long polling that would explain a lot. CF makes you pay a lot for websocket support have you tried Incapsula?

    Edit: also congrats to mango lassi :)
