    I run a number of roleplaying forums.
    * SMF 2.0: 3,060,741 Posts in 56,838 Topics by 7,484 Members.
    * phpBB3: Total posts 442,192 | Total topics 13,408 | Total members 3485
    * phpBB3: Total posts 99,312 | Total topics 2,654 | Total members 592
    * MyBB 1.4: 23,426 posts in 919 threads. 202 members (Had to close this one)
    * SMF 1.1: Total Topics: 634 Total Posts: 16,779 Total Members: 236

    Somewhere around a million posts people start feeling crowded and... yeah >_> The lack of members is a bit of an illusion, stopforumspam prevents about half of signups and another half get pruned.

    I recently picked up The Tech Zone so I could have some variety : ) Don't have control of the domain yet since it's still under 60 days old.

    The smaller ones (Everything but Elliquiy - the 3 million+ post one) I let other people run for the most part. E takes up the vast majority of my efforts on all fronts - SEO, administration, and so on. It runs like a well-oiled machine and I am immensely proud of it. People ask to be banned because it's so addictive. Not sure if that's worth being proud of or not >_>

    It used to be that I considered over a thousand posts in a day 'a lot'. Now under 3k is worryingly slow <_<

    Wonder if I could sell forum development consulting, heh.
