The Official MX UK (Only) Thread v.2.0

Alright, Jom wanted us to make a new one, just 'cause the old one was massive, and it would probably get deleted soon.


MxUK V. 1.0: http://www.sputnikmusic.com/forums/showthread.php?t=203637

Also, Jom, sticky this, just to save us time from occasionally needing to scroll down some

Let me explain why, first of all:

On a forum of this magnitude, threads that exceed an X amount of posts/pages lag the forums as a whole down pretty significantly. I was perfectly fine with your guys's community shindig, but I just wanted to let you guys know as the peaceful moderator that some moderators will come in and straight-up delete massive threads without giving as much as a warning. So, this is why I had my little preamble warning thingmajig.

I was also sympathetic with your community deal you've got going on here, and when Classifieds went down, you got moved to GD and that was probably the worst place your thread could go to. Thus, this is why I moved it to this forum (it's the least-active of the remaining forums, and will hopefully not have too much GD-esque traffic/posts in here).

If you guys have any questions/suggestions for me, feel free to drop me a line in the For the Mods thread in the Sputnikmusic Community forum; alternatively, my e-mail is in the bio section of my profile.

I apologize sincerely for any inconveniences, but I hope that this solution/forum works out the best for you all.

EDIT: lol @ people posting before I can get this out

Tossy! Holy crap, I didn't know you were still around. How've you been?

Wish, you probably have a better idea as to why the large threads need to be closed/re-started every so often. I vaguely know the reasons why, but you're more in-tune with vBulletin/the Internet/computers than I ever will be, so if I was amiss in my explanations, you can set me straight, or just bring back the first UK thread. I just don't want ebe to come in here and delete that thread for no reason like he did with the whole R&M thing a few weeks ago.

And does this thread REALLY need a sticky? I mean, I'll do it or Wish will do it, but the whole point of putting this in a low-traffic forum was so you guys don't have to search very far for it!

The bigger the thread, the more processing done.

But yeah, I don't see why it needs to be stickied. The last one wasn't for ages before it was moved. Anyway, it's not like it will moved far down the page, and there's a chance it'll have the last post when one is looking at the forum index. But if people reallllly want it stuck, I'm sure something could get worked out.

Fucking hilarious.

Definitely planning on grabbing a DVD of it.

I still dont understand that, as I said in the old thread. When you click a thread link, it sends a request looking for post ID's, and then sends the information back. Its no different than the first page of any other thread.

Unless vBulletin is oddly organised...

vBulletin has to count the total amount of posts allocated to the threadid before it can continue, then divide the total by 5/10/20/30/40 posts per page, then display the page. That can takes a lot of memory. All of this while other threads and details are being called from MySQL.

I sort of see what you're saying, but the query wont go to post #1 if it doesnt need it. Your posts-per-page preference will be sent, and the server will say "ok, i'll get the following posts

#539
#540
#541
#542"

etc

It wont bother with #538 and earlier, because there is no need. It will just leave the whole network feeling suicidal

The internet is over complicated.

I just go by the assumption that everything will sort itself out. That attitude got me through college/sixth form.

and Jom: you cool brudda, thread seems to work fine here.

Exactly.

If something is really that complicated that it'd take forever to figure out, I'm fine with just assuming it'll work, and if it doesn't, someone will fix it.

Though this isn't a great strategy really..'Cause if everyone does the same thing, we're fucked....

For an atheist I believe far too strongly in fate. It stems from laziness. If it happens it happens, if it doesn't fuck it. therefore I am absolved of all blame for anything.

My dad is watching gladiator. Why do I end up getting sucked into this film whenever its on the tv?

I'm the same way pretty much man.

I really dunno' though.

I'm an atheist, but at the same time, I have a tendency to believe everything is going to work out fine. Not by some force of god or a higher power, but just because I believe it will.

As for Gladiator, I don't much like that movie.

I'm entirely sure that I'm using spirituality and fate as an emotional crutch, but I'm entirely fine with that and am too apathetic to do anything to counter it.

Neither do I, but I'm still half watching it.

Big thanks to Jom, good to know the mods are listening to the users and acting appropriately, I'm sure you've "scored a lot of points" or whatever with a lot of people by doing this.

I appreciate it anyway! Thanks again.
