>All boards besides /pol/ 11x14 minus locked Stickies which will very by board.So thats around 154 take removing around 2-10 for off topic or sticky threads at any given point. This goes for all boards besides /pol/ as far as I can tell, slow boards like /po/ and /3/ along with really fast boards like /tv/ and /b/ only have this many threads up at any given point. >/pol/ No suprise /pol/ is now the fast board on all of 4chan so of course its going to have more threads up. Its an 11x18 plus the two additional stickies making it at just under 200 threads at any given time. However I'd say janitors and mods make it more around 190 at any given time because of how often threads get killed for offtopic/GR3 violation/ect. But add that with 6000 posts per hour and 100 new threads per hour and little to no one is surprised on why /pol/ is much larger. >Where are we in all of this We sit at 12x15 which is at 180 threads and due to how this board operates last I checked, we can recover dead threads if a raid happens or a thread is taken down by the mods meaning the only way for a thread to become completely inactive is if this locked out, like the glimmer thread currently is on /mlpol/. I would assume /vx/ is the same but by the looks of it, it has yet to reach the thread limit on its board because of how massive the threads on /vx/ can get. /sp/ as of now looks like its a 12x24 or something byzantine and huge.
So what I've gotten out of looking over all of this is I now agree with the anon saying we need to shrink the catalogue sizes of our boards. A 180 thread catalog on our main board is very large considering we;re no where near as big as /pol/ which is much closer to the catalog size we're trying to emulate. /sp/ is a monster in catalog size, I don't know how large it is at all but it also needs a huge cut in size. /vx/ looks alright for mostly because it hasn't hit over 120 threads on the main board. But overall I'd say cutting both /sp/ and /mlpol/'s catalog sizes down to 150-160 would be a way to keep content on the boards fresh.
