I recently set up a discourse, and migrated content from a phpbb3 forum.
We actually migrated jost some topics/subfora, which means that after a full import, we deleted lots of categories again, to only keep the subfora that got split out. Deleting those postings and categories happened immediately after the import.
Now, after that import, sideqik showed around 100k jobs that needed to be processed. After a couple of days we are now at 500k processed jobs and around 165k still to process.
So they get processed, but it seems every X hours, another batch of around 100k jobs get created. It does not seem like this will get purged eventually.
Is this normal behaviour? Can the deletion of messages be part of a problem here?
