We regularly play with numbers controlling the reflector to make it do what we want. A limit of 500 posts to a thread seemed a good idea as threads that get too big are off putting not only to existing and experienced users of this software but very off putting to the constant stream of new members joining the reflector.
We’ve had some large and unwieldy threads in the past hence the limit of 500 posts was chosen. Anyway that limit has been reached in another thread now and at that point the thread was automatically closed. It’s taken 2 years and 2 months to hit 500 posts so it seems like a sensible limit. As this is the first time this has happened it’s worth taking a moment to consider the limit. Is it about right? Or is it too small or too big.
