    And just an update, we're expecting to be able to install the new search engine for vBulletin hopefully next week. No specific date yet though, the development team is working through some bugs within the Sphinx setup.

    That's good news. Having search back will be very helpful. Thanks for your (and the other Admins') work on this :)

    A development effort to migrate to a different database structure (Sphinx) seems like a fairly significant undertaking. What are the functional areas that have grown the largest and which have the fastest growth trending? It would seem to be less risky and a faster implementation to segment the forums into separate instances of vBulletin?

    Has anyone though of deleting very old posts from WNSIB? or OT? Those seem to be the most popular threads, or where more posts are posted (that sounds redundant...)

    If you go to the forum index (http://forum.notebookreview.com/index.php), you can see how many threads and posts there are in each forum on the right side of the page.

    404 Not Found
    LOL, that link is not working.

    WNSIB has 400+K
    OT 370+K
    Dell 490+K

    Those are the largest ones. But I have found threads from 2007, which can be server-space-consuming
