Neoboards Stick Around Longer
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on July 14, 2020, 11:40 am NST

TNT has made an update to the Neoboards that allow posts and replies to stick around a bit longer than before—4 times as long to be precise! Replies and boards are regularly purged to keep the Neoboards database nimble, so don't expect an auto-purge to ever go away entirely.

Here's the announcement:

As you may have noticed, Neoboard posts are not expiring as quickly as they used to. We've made some adjustments so that you can more easily chat on the boards for longer periods of time before your conversations are removed. Replies should stick around for about 4 times longer now than they used to.

We have to set hard limits and remove posts on a regular basis to keep database usage down and improve board performance. However, we know that the old limits were a bit, well, limiting.

We're going to be monitoring to see if this change makes the Neoboards slower or has any other negative effects, and we may adjust accordingly if necessary.

Knowing that it's not a glitch, we'd appreciate it if you could avoid spamming to see how many pages you can create.

Does this only apply to the actual posts on a board that goes on for months but the replies get (/got) deleted after one week, or do boards themselves also stick around longer rather than getting deleted at midnight NST if it's on page 8 or lower?

My board from yesterday is still alive after not having been bumped for 9 hours so I guess that answers my question c:

I really wanna spam the boards to find out now.
