Auto split thread after x posts

cinq requested me to code the following

I can code it however i think that on the first run it would put the server under huge stress especially if there is a heap of threads over 100 posts and 2 as it will split every thread it could require quite a bid of cosmetic sergery deleting auto generated threads split from old threads that havnt been replied to for ages.

whats your thoughts .... would this hack be of any use to you?

I'd stick the code into newreply.php so it will only affect new threads.

That would be nice!

I'm very interested.

I need something like this:

- Thread will be auto-closed after x numbers of posts
- Auto generate last post in this thread with link to new thread
- Auto generate new thread with link to original thread

Is this possible and what about the huge stress for the server?

Thanks...
