    SBN?

    pardon the faux pas of asking about a different website, but...

    how long does it generally take for a moderator to get around to approving a membership?
    sheesh.
    i've been waiting for days, already.

    They make you wait for approval now?

    ISTR when I joined they didn't make you do that, but I joined a long time ago.

    They're probably running into the scaling limits of the message board software and/or database. (What boards are bigger than SBN?) Even if they throw bigger servers at it, they'll probably bog those down pretty fast too.

    Harmony-Central has almost 41k members, but not as many posts as SBN. Site performance is usually very good. SBN has for a long time been one of the slowest sites I visit.

    Frequency of posting is probably the most important variable. Read performance is going to be much better than write performance.

    Harmony Central sure seems to have a more intelligent group of people though!

    I gave it up over there - too damned slow for my. My http://www.eclipseforums.org has 5k members and about a 50 posts/min average, and it's running on a P3 1.4 desktop server with Linux on it.. And it's fast as hell.

    SBN steenks. You should just stay over here anyways.

    well, you know me, the social butterfly, flitting here and there.

    isn't it enough for ya that NESR gets at least 75% of my (considerable) web traffic?

    SBN's "Open Forum" sub-board has more data in it than all of harmony-central + eclipse forum combined...

    That's it right there. It'll be interesting to see if the other sites keep growing for as long as SBN has.

    Yes he is. BUT, he's pretty gay so you never know.

    Oh and Sean, I'm gonna bust your balls until I finally meet you. It's been what, three fucking years now?
