ok, so I did a search, with the keyword "the*" figuring that should probably be in about every thread created... and I sorted it by "number of replies"..

And currently, the thread that Series started is at 538 posts and 3800 and some odd views...

the next closest is 318 replies by a thread started by doubleanti.. that's a 220 post difference!

an easier way is setting the number of threads to all of them, and clicking on the "Replies" title.
but you're right. weird...:rolleyes:

although the difference is 224 posts now.
notice how the highest post-getters are polls?

I see Series hasn't posted in ages either (well a good few days anyway). Do you think (s)he finally got round to topping 'emselves, and that thread is their legacy? :D

That's cool, I go to some forums (different subject matter of course) where 2,000 replies is the norm. We actually have one thread that has 13,457 replies (27,000+ views) and still going strong. Of course that board has over 100,000 members and usually over 500 logged in 24hrs a day so that makes a big difference.

According to this (Look under Biography):


He had the longest post prior to the Private Game one.

that must have been on the old board...

Yeah - no-one's long thread killed the old board for a little while... I think I started the longest thread on the new board (besides Series's), before the thread mysteriously disappeared....

(either the Terrorism thing or the 4 word story)

>what forum is THAT?<

Probably a CS forum. My friend goes to a CS board that has around 100K registered members and always has like 1,000 logged in at any one time.

Forums like that are just way too big for me...
