Your Forum Needs You!
Sotonians, we have an important and urgent decision to make about our future. Your vote matters and you deserve better because we stand for the many and not the few.
Discourse, the software we use to run the forum, cannot guarantee performance once topics reach greater than 10000 posts.
Our musical chain is perilously close to tripping this magic number. If it does then it will be automatically closed by Discourse.
We have a choice.
I can extend that number but we risk the fact that the forum starts to slow down. Or we can archive the current musical chain and start a new one.
Starting a new one does also allow me to shift the apostrophe over a bit in the title as it’s always given me a little heartburn.
We could, of course, defer to @lifeintheslowlane as it is his thread, but fuck him, this is nearly a democracy so you can each decide.
NOTE 1: The Discourse folks are really adamant that when posts get too big performance will suffer so there may be a point where we have to cut our losses.
- Remain. The current topic should remain as is - and we sod the consequences.
- Leave. We shut the old topic down and start to build a new, better topic.
