  1. I just found today Techspot's longest ever thread.

    http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic667.html

    Why was it closed? Everyone just kept posting and posting and nobody did anything wrong except writing co.cktail and activating the word filter (but that's a real word), and suddenly, after someone's innocent post the thread was closed. After 3673 posts... A shame really.

    I have no idea why that thread was closed, I wasn`t even a member back then. ;)

    I`m sure someone will be able to enlighten us though lol.

    Regards Howard :)

    That was a long time ago, I think at the beginning we wanted to create a HUGE thread just for the heck of it. But then when we had the huge thread, I started worrying about the size of the vB database if the pace continued... and that was a much smaller forum back in 2002! :D

    So can't we reopen it? It seems like a fun idea ;)

    As Julio was worried about the VB data base back then, when we only had a few thousand members. It seems logical, that with Techspot fast approaching 80,000 members, he wouldn`t want to risk opening that thread again. ;)

    Regards Howard :)

    I'm afraid I won't give what you want on this one, just because it can cause a hurdle to admin in the future... however I'm open for any other 'games' or ideas you come up with.
