That's exactly what I was going to say.
My forum has ~200'000 posts, but tweaking tips are always welcome..

Maybe just restricted to vbulletin license holders, that would be cool.


I mean, if you have a big board, you need to have a license, and if you dont have one license, why do you want to know how to run and/or discuss subjects about running/administrating big boards?


By big boards I mean those listed on big-boards.com (or those that qualify to).
Well, you said big boards are only those who qualify into the 500.000 posts, I dont see why we should only call big boards those who some ranking site say they should be big! Doesnt make any sense. Besides, Big-Boards.com has nothing to do with Jelsoft

I don't see a reason to keep it hidden and I have a few very large forums (I don't really like the term big boards any more!). People are always trying to create private clubs to keep people out -- IE lets not give away our "secrets". The whole idea of vb.org is to share. Now if it was a security discussion section, I could see limiting it to vb owners only.

If the focus of this section is to cover feature enhancements, server tweaks, and other things specifically related to the vBulletin software performance, then keep it open...

if the focus of the section will branch out into financial/member goals, then it should be private.

I thought this section was aimed at big boards not big-boards if you get my meaning. It is for big (IE large) board admins and not specifically aimed at those listed with big-boards. The description for this section is "Use this forum to discuss issues related to running large vBulletin forums" it doesn't mention anything about big-boards. If I am misinformed, forgive me.

I visit a couple of sites (TAZ and http://www.bigboardadmin.com among them) and I think that a lot of larger forum owners simply prefer to discuss some matters in private -- especially since the information being shared is of a semi-sensitive nature.

I'm a BBA, and don't care if this board is 'open'.

To be honest, I don't see the point in making them private. (I've read the points that have been made...but I don't think they justify making the boards private.)

I have a site with 280,000+ posts and I do not think this should be made private at the big-boards.com standard. There are a lot of good tips big board admins can give out that would apply to a site my size as well. Also why should big-board.com define what a big-board is here anyway and knock out those that could still benefit from this discussion?

As a non big-board owner, I disagree with making this forum private. Why? Because I administer a board for a friend of mine that is growing exponentially. Probably by summer it will be at "big board" status and I would like to incorporate optimization tips found here before it does reach "big board" status.

Also, I don't understand what purpose a private forum would serve.

Bad idea overall.
