How Big is too Big


Looking to expand my current board system with discussions by each region in my state (NJ). My plan is to have each county listed (21 Total) - each one leading to a section of child forums listing towns located in each specific county (each town would act as its own forum under the county). Each county may have anywhere from 20 - 30 towns listed so that right there would give me a total of 600 forums or so on the system.

My question is, at what point should I be worried about having too many forums thus possibly making the system unstable? As far as the rest of the board goes I only anticipate a few handfuls of other forums so I should definitely be under 1,000 forums.

I am currently NOT on a dedicated server

Any input would be appreciated.

Up to 1000 forums would not be a problem, even with shared hosting. I have 107 forums only taking up 37kb of space in the database (that is the forum table, not threads/posts).

We currently have 1400 forums, and our board involves a lot of forum creation (and destruction).

Never had any problems with it, though we are on a dedicated server.
