I was really surprised to learn that local moderators were unable to edit tags in topics within their assigned areas. It seems like a big oversight in my opinion. A simple allow toggle in the moderators permission would be a welcome improvement to 3.2 IMHO.
I have a question: How big is too big for a database using IPB system (already upgraded to 3.1 if it matters). I guess I'm just worried as my back up zip file of the database grows... I wonder what problems can creep in. Maybe someone with a ton more experience than me with forum databases can give me a few pointers here.
Just to give you an idea of what I'm dealing with: 250,000 posts in 6 months so far from about 3000 members. The DB seems to be about 400 MB now, and at this point zipped up backup file is about 70 MB.
Desperately searching for a friendly Developer to help get me started on my custom application. Want to do the work myself, but need a Yoda to lend me some major guidance. PM if interested and you have the free time to teach a noobie a thing or two.
