Evening guys,

As you may have heard/known by now, threads will auto close at 10k posts - meaning that there is no way that threads can go past by even a couple of posts.

Which gives us a dilemma...

Currently, as things stand, the count in relation to the post number is not the neatest, as the thread started at -10041, rather than -10001 (due to when the last thread ended). Originally, the plan would have been to get a nicer number, such as -20100, for the end of this thread. However, the new auto close feature makes this impossible.

We now have two options:
1) Keep the thread going until it is auto-closed, and start the new thread on whatever the resulting number is, whether it be xx,040, xx,041 or xx,042. (It won't go more than a couple of posts before auto close.) This may make things a bit more difficult to track for errors, though.
2) I start a new thread, and link across, 40 posts early, at 20k (on the count). This will mean we have nice numbers to sync the post count with the thread count. Of course, it does mean we lose 40 posts.

Let me know what you think is the best option - and also let me know what we should do in regards to CTAM, as that also doesn't have a nice finishing number (xx,335).
