Deleted threads shouldn't alter your post count. At least it doesn't on other boards.

No problem, Droopy ~ I think we were all a bit confuzzled.

I'm still trying to figure out if we have covered all the closed ones--at least the ones that I like to post in. That was nice of you, droopy. There will probably be more duplicates started before we get everything straightened out.

Chancebunny ~ I *think* all of the closed ones are taken care of. If you look at the icon on the very left-hand column in the thread names, you'll see a padlock on the closed ones. I was really working to get everything in as much order as I could before you came to ABC land.

Oh, one thread I didn't re-do was ABC Names, because we already have an ABC boys/men's names and an ABC girls/women's names.

I did go to page 10 and work my way up to page 1, seeing which theads had been closed. I thought that I found one that hadn't been restarted, but upon double checking, I saw that it had. I wonder if any more will be closed?

As far as curing the forum hangups or slowdowns or whatever you call them, I have still had some.

I find it completely hilarious that someone that's posted twice in this thread with nothing but positive words formerly decided to take out a personal vendetta against me for mentioning that their gazillion-post thread sucked bandwidth.

Hey, Brent has spoken. Thanks for legitimizing what I said, there, pal. It caused quite the fuss. I appreciate the backup.

Hi guys,

Deleting the threads isn't necessary because it was their access and frequency of access that was part of the problem. Once closed, they will be accessed much less often.

As some of you may have noticed, closing the huge threads didn't entirely solve the intermittent server hangs. I made some additional adjustments on the server tonight that will help, so hopefully that will do it. If not, I'll keep working on it.

Thanks everyone.


Brent

Thanks for the site and for all that you do for us, Brent! I hope my crazy posting wasn't the major cause of the forum hang-ups. I do have a lot of fun here. Maybe too much fun?

I don't go to the end of these pages anymore since most are the closed ones. But, I can't beleive there is over 20 pages now. What is the point in having all these pages there taking up space and not being used?
