In that case, I guess I may as well pursue excessive wealth after all.

UBB has yet to adjust to daylight savings time. Is there any explanation for that, besides it happening on a different date?

Saunders was eaten too? I thought it was just M^2 that survived UBB ingestion.

There have been several members who returned after being eaten. Only MM kept his original member number. Saunders just got her custom title and mod position back on a new account.

You know if someone decided to post an appropriately gargantuan topic here (Read: Several hundred thousand images) they could probably destroy the forum completely. I wonder if anyone has ever tried this on other forums.

I did..I was on a gaming forum once..the noobies were getting a little hectic..so the senior members made another forum then spammed up the forum from whence they came..the spamming includes some 10000x10000 images and on.nimp..I could post the 10000x10000 images but I don't know if UBB can handle it..

Edit: Ack! UBB won't let me post..when I click the Add Reply button, the page loads a blank page..@_@

Just disable the ability to post images, and limit the content of posts to a specified number of characters. There really isn't a need to post more than a page...

The RP'ers would disagree... And even though you can link to an image having a cap per post would probably be best.

Posting huge external images probably wouldn't do anything to the UBB. All it has to do is keep track of a few bytes of text and feed them to any browsers that retrieve the topic. The browser then has to go and retrieve the massive image. It would be really inconvenient for all humans, but the UBB would be fine.

—Alorael, who assures you it's far easier than that to bring things crashing down around here. Post, say, the entirety of the Iliad. Or the Kama Sutra. You'll get banned for it, but you can also demolish the thread.

It has to be really long, though -- probably over 100,000 words. I once failed to damage a thread by posting the Prose Edda.

I remember WKS had to double post to crash TM's undead thread. He wasn't happy that the first post had insufficient postage.

Ah I see, that's when an unabridged English dictionary comes in handy.
