OK......after digging around on the internet I found a Forum ranking website that does it by members and posts. FileFront is currently ranked 356 out of like a whole lot of forums with 3.5 million posts on here. The number 1 forum on this site has 1,284,824,802 posts with 11,651,866 members. WOW!!!!

Wanna find some more forums that you are apart of that you think are BIG?!?!?! Visit this website to search for what you ware looking for.

I know, it's like holy shit... It must take like 1034029590324650293 database servers to keep that going. :-\

Gaia Online is very, very well made. Each member gets to pick their own character, which they can customise, and the forums aren't laid out like any other - you have a 'map' with the different forums on it where you can click on a place to go to it.

That sort of system works well with a themed forum like Gaia Online (they have a manga/anime theme). Here it would just annoy people.

As for Gaia Online's hosting, they have loads of servers. I believe they show information about their servers at the bottom of each page, but they may no longer do it. I guess they've had to modify phpBB heavily to get it to work with multiple database servers, and a fuckload of caching must go on behind the scenes.

Still, if you register and have a look, you'll find that the majority of the posts are spammy. The top poster has hundreds of thousands of posts, all of which are spammy. We'd never put up with that crap here.

Gaia online is more than a simple online community, it's a game in itself fully utilizing an rpg system into it. They're using the very basic code of phpbb but completely modified every portion of it so unless you saw the site before they reworked it you wouldn't know what it used by just looking.

We investigated those sites long ago to see what types of features they implemented and what we could add here that we felt the community would think was fun.

Here are their hardware numbers as someone was requesting;

Hardware: 80+ web servers, 11 database servers (4 dedicated to forums), 3 session database servers, 1 memory cache

4 forum servers?! Wtf kind of size servers are they...They are either tiny, or there is more to those 1 billion posts then first thought... Surely a single 1TB server could handle that, plus the read/write times would be increased using a single server...its text (for the most part), hence tiny...

there's a lot more to a web-server than holding information.
