XF 1.2 Loads of usergroups ? Could that affect load time ?

Hello,

If I have like 100 usergroups on my board, each one with like 50 members, could that make my site slower ?

Are usergroups designed to be really flexible like that ?

Regards.

No, amount of user groups shouldn't have any effect on your load time, other then maybe a page that listed all the groups and members within it, but even that shouldn't be really noticeable.

It may cause issues during permission rebuilds, when creating private nodes for example.

Why you would ever need to have 100 user groups?
A kind of custom add-on ^^

It may cause issues during permission rebuilds, when creating private nodes for example.
And even with these usergroups with "defaults" permission. 0 special permission for these. Can this still causes issues ?

BTW, I don't think I will have more than 50 usergroups (and less that 10 users in each group), so no problem with that ?

You may have issues rebuilding permissions, but unless you are updating permissions constantly, you should be relatively fine.

A permissions combination for each group must be created.

@digitalpoint, since you have a big board, what is your opinion about that ?

Would you suggest me having 100 usergroups, or is that a bad idea ?

If I want so many usergroups, it is just for the username styling, not for the permissions.

Truthfully, I'm not sure... I don't have that many usergroups... I *think* it should be okay normally with the way it's done... but like @Brogan said, might be some slowness when rebuilding permissions.
