Long threads

I'm locking this thread due to its length and the issues it causes the moderators in administrating very large threads. If there is a need for further discussion please start a new thread.


I was just wondering what the issues are?

Long threads

We have a problem in phpbb which doesnt allow us to adminstrate (split topics, delete posts etc) for long threads over 9 pages in length. Also experience shows that people don't read a thread in full if its 40+ pages long.

Chris;

May I suggest that a sticky or announcement or something is made regarding this? Then if you lock a thread because of this issue then you can just link to it; people can read the explanation; there are no hard feelings and you don't have to repeat yourself time and again on the issue...
