Post stats
    #6303552 - 11/20/06 07:42 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

When you click on someone's post total to see the post stats, how come the total is always wrong?

I know many posts were lost a few years ago in the server crash, but even new users' totals are off, sometimes by a huge margin. Geordi la Forge has 32000+ posts, but only 900 something show up in the post stats.

Is it only because OTD threads expire?

This has been keeping me awake at night.

Pretty much, yeah. Plus any manually deleted posts, posts which are lost through technical glitches or human error, etc. You're right that there can be a pretty big discrepancy, that's why I've always said the post count should reflect only the number of posts actually present on the BB at any given time.

Either that or the amount of posts actually present on the board actually reflect the post count... :tongue:

If we had a fundraiser for server space for OTD archives, would that seal the deal? Think of the services and goodies they could provide to keep their threads... :smirk:

It's not really a capacity issue, the BB takes up only a little over 3GB of our 100GB array. It's a memory and performance limitation, the more posts there are the longer it takes to search, sort, or repair the database. I'm evaluating possible solutions (like a different fulltext search engine) but I can't really justify sinking that much time into it when there's other stuff that still needs attention. My suspicion is we'd need to set up some sort of load balancing between multiple servers before it would be practical to preserve OTD's posts indefinitely.

You're missing the central idea that we should start aggressive fund-raising efforts to reap the benefits. :wink:
