We only start new threads when it comes to games and stuff like the "Random X thread". I suppose no one will check page 57, but posts will still show up when you use the search button (you can search inside a specific subforum). I really don't see an issue with the information being there, you never know if it might be useful to someone.
I'm just doubtful anyone would care to search or read previous posts when they can just make their own thread post much faster.

In the subforum you mod, you can choose whether you start a new thread after 100 pages or not.
This is something we could add to the guidelines. Just saying so that I won't forget it.

That's a good idea, I might do that for Dutch. People should really learn to ask simple questions in the "Questions about [language]" thread instead of starting lots of new topics that only get a few posts each.
Hmm, I could try to go through the threads and see if I could sort them into different categories. Then I could make several threads for them (instead of one huge thread for everything), like "translation requests", "looking for a friend" and "grammar questions". (Those were examples of what kind of common themes I've noticed, I haven't yet decided anything.)
