how many pages did it go for? and did it end with a lock, or did people just slowly lose interest until the thread ended up in the archives?
Link Posted: 3/2/2006 11:06:54 AM EDT
87 pages.
Link Posted: 3/2/2006 11:07:27 AM EDT
40 pages is the max, then the thread automatically dies. There have been a number of them go that long.

either the AR pic threads or the BOTD threads are the most popular

What he said.

There are a couple threads that go the 40, get locked, then another is started linking back, then that reaches 40 and gets locked, then another is started and linked back and so on.

wow i didn't know that. is there any reason why they aren't allowed to go longer?

I would wager that some of the abortion threads have gone that long.

Chuck Norris told Edsr to do that when he set up the site.

"WHICH AR FOR A PETITE FEMALE?" by "TT"



Probably one of the most viewed, ever...
Link Posted: 3/2/2006 11:14:44 AM EDT
IIRC, a thread can go over 40 pages but no pages beyond 40 will show up.

The airsoft ridicule picture thread had more hits than the longest running BOTD thread (or anything else) at the time. There was nothing that rivaled it.

Everything stops at 40 so times viewed is the best measure...and the airsoft thread totally rocked everything else by that measure.


That was back when Kangaroo-AR15A3 was here. Kangaroo, Dolomite and I were the "ARFCOM Saints" during that period when airsoft would pop up and get soundly trounced through withering, merciless ridicule.

i've seen one at 41 pages

No they auto lock at 40 pages.
Jack Bauer Power Hour threads usually hit 40 pages less than halfway through the season.

I think technically the Battlestar Galactica and 24 threads are the longest running since they have had many 40+ page threads that are continuations of other locked 40 page threads.

BotD doesn't count.
Link Posted: 3/2/2006 11:24:06 AM EDT
I thought the "Texas piggies at the feeder" was going to be a contender.
Link Posted: 3/2/2006 11:25:10 AM EDT
the motivational poster thread is at 39 pages and counting at the momment IIRC
Link Posted: 3/2/2006 11:31:08 AM EDT
I think that the aquabumping thread deserves honorable mention.

As do the Battlestar Galactica threads.

didnt aquabump only go 27 pages?
Link Posted: 3/2/2006 11:33:41 AM EDT
Just mention illegitimate kids or swinging in the subject line = 40 pages guarandam-teed
Link Posted: 3/2/2006 11:35:48 AM EDT
In summation there have been dozens of 40 page threads. 40 pages is the limit so nothing will ever go past that.

AH-HA!

How would you know about the aquabumping thread if you've only been here since February?

Who are you REALLY?
Link Posted: 3/2/2006 11:39:08 AM EDT
If I remember correctly, the Sept 11th thread was largest and I believe it was before the 40 page lock, too.

Wasn't there some kind of Range Report thread that got huge, very quickly, was locked, and now no one will talk about it? I'm a relative newbie so maybe it's just AR folklore but I've seen it referenced here before...

Let's see:
The "ARFCOM Ladies thread" in the women's forum.
The "Arfcom hotties" thread, same forum.

I believe there was a linked, locked version before the "Official ARFCOM Wives' Club" thread in Team.

I think the "M&A Houston Gun Show thread" went 41 pages.
Link Posted: 3/2/2006 11:48:53 AM EDT
Range Report sure had a lot of hits.
