Title: Bumping/Necroing
Post by: MangoJuice on August 01, 2011, 03:41:45 PM
It's generally a good idea to check the last post's date in a thread. If it's more than a month old, you should either forget about posting there, or if the thread is really old, make a new topic.

Necroing threads isn't a warnable offense. But it is heavily frowned upon by most of the community. Exessive necroing of old threads may warrant a warning, however, just because the threads that were bumped are probably old and useless by now and wouldn't give much to the community if brought back to life. Simply put, necroing too much is spam.

And if you see somebody that's bumped a really old thread, do us all a favor and don't react to it. Posting something like "Oh look, a necro. gg." doesn't help or undo the necro at all. So let's try not to do that.

Stay juicy.

Just so you (the community) know, if an old thread is still on the first page (the board gets little activity) and you have something very useful to contribute to said topic, it is preferable for you to post in the old thread instead of making a duplicate. It keeps the site clean. Just make sure that you acknowledge you are reviving an old thread so no one has room to bug you over it.
