    the funny thing is I can't imagine PM inboxes occupy more than 1% of the entire database.

    Are there statistics?


    There are 1,122,883 records in the PM table as compared to 3,831,028 in the post table. The actual size of the data is small but the resources it consumes are substantial. Right now I don't want to tax the system any further.

    Keep in mind that you can download your PMs to an Excel file and clear out your inbox.

    a) The mods are awesome.

    b) Why is the "U" in Styleforum a different color? This has been consuming me for a while.

    an earlier incarnation of the site had a really lame V instead of the U. it was supposed to look cool in the early 2000s.

    by the way, does anyone have a link to the old site? i was thinking of throwing an early 2000s themed party and wanted to use it for reference. figuring guys - diesel, girls - electroclash

    probably a little preemptive, but then again the 90s only took off for a couple of years. joking btw.

    So the color is to celebrate using a V in an earlier incarnation and the V was only done to look cool? And what the hell are diesel guys and electroclash girls? Were you in some multi year rave in the early 2000s?

    Some of us did not need to fear gunshots when we left campus, nor 300 pound women walking around looking to trample us.

    What about street punks, anarchists, Trotsyites, hippies, and deranged homeless?

    "forum" is a Latin word, and classical Latin does not distinguish between U and V.

    can't recall, it was all a blur. anyone to show up with an anti-bush shirt or a "our grief is not an excuse for war" sign wins the party.

    actually, fuck it. this party sounds terrible.
