I would say yes, but the reality is that really large threads are demanding on device and internet resources. Lag times get worse and worse as the strain on the resources get larger and larger as the thread’s “weight” gets heavier and heavier.

Sad, but true.

would there be major issues if there was no thread limit? Is just because of what @MACJR.1962 pointed out?

I always forget something from season 1. Then you see the recap and you’re “oh, yeah he had is face eaten off.”

Since the thread is loaded in chunks, it wouldn’t create much difference than now.
There are 2 potential issues.

  1. as the number of posts goes up the instance pointers would go up. But that is a server dude issue. Certainly 20k would be much, if any additional overhead.
  2. on the user end, since threads are only loaded in relative chunks, unless someone loaded the entire thread, by scrolling through all the messages, that could cause slow response times.

But, worth it. Stay Tuned.

Okay, serious time. I’m reading New Teen Titans for the first time… and I have a strong dislike of it. I’m about 20 issues in.

Should I…

  • Stop reading it.
  • What?!
  • It gets better. I will tell you when below.
  • NTT is a masterpiece. Weather through it.

Edit: Summary

This covers the first 1.2k posts. I don’t know the other languages to know if there was anything to glean from them. If there is a multilinguist, you may need to help. Edit 2: Everything up to the recap is 1.2k. I still would need to go through content between 1.2k- recap. Edit 3: While edit 2 got to 1.2k, edit 3 confirms the remaining 16 or so posts to reach 1.3k posts revisited have been and they are all geared towards other languages, so the error is in 1.2-it should say 1.3k.
