Everyone keeps saying these forums are slow and unreliable because they are so BIG. I really don't know how BIG they are... THis site shows some forums with over 655 million posts. Based on my quick calculations, bikeforums.net has a little over 2 million posts.
So is it really that BIG? By reading some of these posts one would assume that we are breaking new ground with the size of the forums here at bikeforums.net. It would be natural to assume that these forums will NEVER work right just because they are so big. I assume that because that is the explanation that keeps being presented not by the forum owner, but by so many others.
Do they know what they are talking about? Do other large forums or larger forums have this amount of trouble?
