I have a crazy one at my forum, currently at:
I had one at over 12,000, but had to cull it because vBulletin was causing the server to crash!
Actually, my vBulletin 3.8 is handling this very well, it's all about the host.
It was because they kill off MySQL queries that take longer than a minute.
Title: What are you eating now? (translated from Dutch)
Problems in vB3.8 ? No.
We used to have one at over 35,000 replies, but we eventually split it.
We now tend to split the large ones off after a while as no one is interested in the older posts on a day to day basis.
41,387 replies = 2,760 pages
Ha, I feel so small now...
Replies: 3,370 with 36,466 views on VB 3.8.
There are a few others that are pretty close, but I guess nothing tops "Currently Listening To" .
Can some of you post the links to these long threads here ?
This thread is only accessible for registered members though.
Our largest got to ~5000 replies with ~650,000 views before being closed. However, we generally end threads after they hit certain lengths and then start up continuations. If we're counting that, then I'd guesstimate over 500,000 replies.

Title: The longest thread ever ?? (Well what else would it be called )
It's actually nowhere near the longest thread I've had running on a forum but it is the only active one now.

Aren't those threads too big to handle? Maybe start new ones every once in a while?
Our largest is 5,440 replies, 824,037 views.

Mine hasn't presented vBulletin 3.x or 4.x with any problems at all yet. It'll be interesting to see what XenForo makes of it
I meant to handle as in moderating or following the conversations.
My largest thread currently has 93,028 replies and 10,261,000 views.
Most of the users on that forum are very well behaved and as it's largely a spam thread most of what's posted in there is rubbish
