thanks for your quick reply ... so lets say i have a User model which
has the following attributes...
so the user was created by a user .. and the last modification be done
by another user .. then each user reports to one user ... moreover the
users have friends, send messages, write blog entries, etc.
- would you really add for all this own associations? also e.g. for
creator and updater - which are e.g. only used on one place?
- i also load the current logged in user on each request .. would this
affect performance if more associations are here?
Having an association or not isn't going to affect the loading a
i am just wondering, because the project is expecting to have 10.000
uniques a day.
Remember what they say about premature optimization ?
