I have a topic that's about to hit 20k replies.
Is it wise to split the topic?
A few years ago (~5) I used to split topics once they had 5000 replies, but I have stopped doing that since I didn't see any performance issues.

The advice used to be 25k posts but on more modern hardware, I don't think there is any real guidance, just let it run and see how big it gets before it starts to slow things down.
