New Feature: Community Size Average

The new features list is increasing again! Each forum software has now a recommended community size, where it is know that the software will deliver its best performance and will be able to support this kind of load charge.

Obviously, if a product is able to manage a Large Community, it could also support smaller communities.

Do you benchmark each forum

Do you benchmark each forum or is it just another thumb suck? How do you determine in what category to put each forum? If you run a benchmark, it would be great if you can also publish the detailed results.

Best regards.

The results are not based on

The results are not based on a benchmark or so on. It's just a transposition about what most communities will generally use. As written in a review, it's not because a forum supports large communities that it will not be able to support small one (the opposite is also true).

It could be considered as subjective and abstract as a rating, a general opinion, or a comparision of softwares.

So... There's no benchmark. I want to change my current forum software to another free source option between SMF and MyBB.

SMF has the well known issue with the license and I don't actually like investing time in something that may be discontinued soon, so I quite hesitate with it.

On the other hand, I see here that MyBB is shown at recommended size something like under 10k users and 150k posts, and the community I manage has more than this.

Should I take your recommendation into account?
