Users are concerned board not loading and that it is not due to cookies or uncleared history. They are asking if at a certain point we need to achieve cards or move to another board. We have not completed the year and would like to maintain the cards at least until year-end...looking for guidance on best practice. we have approx 1500 cards across swim lanes. 

looking for best practice or advice, thanks!

I wrote about automating board cleanup a while back here:
