Housekeeping

Internet Brands' tech bods reckon that 'caching' of old, long threads is partially responsible for the technical hitches we experience on a regular basis.

Which is why a number of those long running threads have been shortened & restarted by splitting off their last page.

For your information.

The limerick thread has two pages of another thread attached first.....can these be deleted please, and can you say what the limiting number on posts on a thread is?

If it's, say, 10k, can we have the last 10k less a page on a rolling basis?

Thank you Hobo; those pages had indeed gone walk-about.

Question 1: Sorry, no exact numbers available. Playing this by ear.

Question 2 : That is the aim for now, yes.

I reckon that is very poor and indicates substandard software.

To blithely wipe out huge sections of long-running threads, including contributions from now deceased posters is quite shameful.

They haven't been wiped out Vulcanised, they have simply become part ones...

Maybe keeping this post as a sticky with links to the earlier versions of the various truncated threads might be an idea? (How many volumes of Trabwotsit threads have there been now? )

It's actually quite simple to make a sticky at the top of the forum pointing to "archived threads" and keep the archived threads in a sub-forum to this one... Or even start each new thread with a message pointing to the archived Thread(s)... It's simple... Really....

But then, a web site that can't be fixed over a four day Thanksgiving Holiday, probably won't be able to think that laterally...

That's something, I suppose.

Still has an air of sticky tape and string repair about it fragmenting in that way.

It does...

Maybe, for the sake of accuracy, PPRuNe should be renamed PRuNe... Take out the Professional bit in case one were to misread it...

I was hoping to read it as the "pilot" bit was removed

Pilot? I thought it meant Prat.

I've been on the wrong website this whole time.

Well, we get what we pay for. May be time for myself and others to drop a few more coins in the tip jar.

Stickies with links?

Come on chaps, you don´t really need a web nanny.

If you want to see an old thread, put its title in the search engine and up it will pop.

Vulcanised, when all we have is sticky tape & string to try and keep the place grinding along, that is what we have to use.

viz3m, back in the day, that´s what we did. You and we and many other PPRuNers. It helped afford new servers and kept Danny in donuts.
Such times have passed. A good number of years ago now, PPRuNe was sold out of private hands to Internet Brands Inc.

IB does not read these threads.
There is a 'contact us' link on the website.

Nobody enjoys the current state of affairs.
When annoyance with the technical hitches outgrows enjoyment of the content, we all have the option to stop using the website.
A fact of life we mods like no better than you.

When the mods have finished housekeeping here, my garage could do with a tidy-up.

In which case, less time spent by you on PPRuNe, and more in your garage seems indicated MagnusP.

Need to borrow our broom & pinnie/boiler suit?

If the pinnie has a lacy frill, you're on. And a skip would be more useful than a broom, ta.

BTW, the housekeeping seems to have stopped another oddity, and that was that some pages, particularly in long threads, would continuously reload. Ta.

Strange as it may seem, I subscribe to other interactive web thingys powered by vBulletin® v3.8.7 (along with quite a few others here I suspect). Not one, and several of them have bigger numbers/cojones than exhibited here, has ever displayed this degree of incompetence regarding basic housekeeping/data management/maintenance. Jeez, even the chimps at the college used to get it right....

OTOH I also contribute to other forums that USED TO run on VBulletin and two of them changed to another OS in the not too distant past.

One wonders if it isn't more of a back end SQL server issue to be honest...
