Well heck, just go ahead and start the new "Corona Virus Updates Part 5". Version 4 is about to the point where it will get closed down pretty soon
Can still fit another 200 odd pages on that thread!
It's not a matter of "fitting" Most message board systems can have threads as long as there is enough disk space on the server to hold all the posts.
Most admins don't let threads get abnormally long because the way most message boards are designed, when someone reads a thread, the entire thread
gets buffered. Multiply that by the number of people reading such a thread, and you can see where that would become a strain on server resources.
But for the sake of argument, thread #1 was closed at 278 pages, thread #2 was closed at 362 pages, thread #3 was closed at 371 pages, and when we
found thread number 4 locked it was at 287 pages. So it definitely appears that the closing was at the discretion of a moderator, not a hard limit.
