    Msg Boards

    ok well here is the deal i have noticed over the last new months that it is murder...there are just too many boards and u forget wot topics u have posted on...maybe we should just keep 5 big boards for up to 10 pages each board that way we save not only database space but one can browse thru them easier. Maybe they can be "General", "Crypto", "*nix", "Microsoft", and "Development"(for programming and such). this way it will be much easier i think

    If you're losing track of the treads you post in, there are two ways to check....

    Subscribe to the tread, and check your site subscriptions when you log on, or
    Check your user profile, it lists the last 20 treads in which you have posted....

    Somehow I don't think that changing the # of forums will really scale down the database. The large portion of the DB is the posts and flames.

    At best, it would save query time, as there'd be less tables...but then there'd be more posts in those tables so maybe it would make it even slower to load a few hundred extra posts in that table.

    Bah! The only way to really downscale the DB is to 1) delete the thousands of users who've never posted (or have only the "Hi I'm new here post") or 2) delete the hundred flame posts.

    Well, if you go into a user profile, you can see the last 10 or so posts you have made... Just go to your profile.

    databases are meant to be huge....

    aside from subscribing....there already is a simple way of finding all of the threads you've posted to....just click on the magnifiying glass beside your nick in any post and it will search for all your posts ordered from newest to oldest...
