    I think it was some sort of birthday thread. Unfortunately, I can't exhume that one, as it was locked. And it ran to well over 1000 posts, while this hit the 2000 mark about a year ago, I think.

    EDIT: It was more than 2 years ago.

    Here was the original 2000th post: http://www.webdeveloper.com/forum/sh...postcount=1999

    And the current 2000th post was then the 2000th reply. http://www.webdeveloper.com/forum/sh...35251&page=171

    today's history lesson:

    back in the good old days there was no coffee lounge. the basic rule of thumb was that threads were to stay on-topic (and web development topics only) during the monday-friday week. on the weekends, the moderators let off a little bit and threads were allowed to get "silly." come monday, however, threads were to be back on-topic. the creation of the coffee lounge in april 2004 brought a place to have "off-topic" discussions whenever we wanted. quickly this became, per capita, the most-discussed place on the board as shown from this post on 02-28-2005:

    as you can tell, we had lots of fun here. because i spent most of my time here, i was made a mod in june of 2004. since then the era of the great "discussion threads" where a topic was started and people jumped in all the time until mayhem ensued has been slowly fading - a quick glance at the lounge main page shows only 4 non-stickied threads with more than 15 posts and one of them is this thread. however, the lounge is still the lounge, and as long as i'm a mod here it will be the place to be.

    some epic threads of note:
    Forum Building Help - the original super thread currently has 598 replies. it features many of the original "big names" on the forum - the people that got this place off the ground and kept it going.
    Happy Birthday, Peo - originally, obviously, a happy birthday thread, it soon devolved into an attempt to overrun this thread as the forum's largest. it got out of hand and was opened and closed a few times before it was finally put to sleep in august of 2005. it died with 1201 posts.
    The real HP Vs. Dell battle - this one also got out of hand a few times, but remains open with 519 posts.

    How would you view the 10 largest threads, regardless of forum?

    We've been discussing thread lengths, and I decided to have a look through the various forums I could get at and find out what was the longest threads in each.

    For most of them, I have 1 post, but if the largest thread(s) is/are sticky and/or locked, I'll include that/those plus the largest unsticky open thread as well, giving a maximum of 3 "longest threads".

    I can't give statistics for forums which have no threads I can access (which include #8, #12-#15, #17, #19, #23, #35), "forums" which are essentially groups of forums ( #1: Client-Side Development; #18: Server-Side Development; #32: Etc.; and #39: Site Management), forums that simply redirect me (#34, 36, #38), or the E-Commerce forums (#24 and #25, which I don't think I should have been able to access), but for the rest, I give the forum thread name, a link, and the post count.

    Without furthur ado:

    Longest Threads by Forum (Arranged by Forum Number)



    Notes:
    1. Locked
    2. Sticky
    3. One of the 10 longest threads
    4. Longest Non-Coffee Lounge Thread
    5. Shortest "Longest Thread"
    6. Post still on first page of forum
    7. Post moved to Coffee Lounge
    8. Poll

    I wanted an avatar at the same time as I was playing Disgaea a lot, so for lack of anything else to pick I chose the main character of the game.

    Yes. Yes it was. You'd be amazed how difficult I can make things.

    Besides, Google is often useless. Permit me to demonstrate:

    You're looking for an automobile built by the Case company. Lotsa luck.
