There is no upper limit to how many resources your town can hold. What is limited however, is the amount of resources your farms, mines, etc can produce; this why banks are effective, especially where clan members "hypermax" certain resource(s). As long as they keep sending to the banks before reaching their limit they will continue to produce.
Though the statement that the town can hold unlimited resources would appear to be true.
I still have to take odds with (or a bank for that matter ) which seems to be against my experience, which is why I asked the question about banks.
Early on in my game a clan member said they couldnt send me resources because my vault was full.I have seen the same message myself when I have tried to send resources.
This would suggest that when a town production is shut down, you cannot send resources there.
I understand the concept of hypher farming, but what exactly is the mechanism for sending unlimited amounts to a bank,which is really just another town?
How does the vault not get full and prevent resources being sent there?
