What, no option for they're awesome? There's a lot of interesting stuff on this site that you can only find by searching on some term or browsing endlessly. If it gets dredged up out of the depths that can be a good thing. Unless they accidentally try to continue a conversation that's 2 years old. In which case it's kind of funny.
Aw, I've done it once or twice, does that mean I'm a stinky baby-eater? :: I haven't ever done the thing meatcake mentioned though where someone randomly replies to a comment from 500 years ago! Lol, it's pretty funny when that happens Just now and again you come across a thread that's amazing and deserved to be resurrected.
What´s wrong with digging up old threads? I think it´s rather good when the threads are interesting or they have something interesting to say to that subject. It´s good that people read old threads, just because they are a bit out of date doesn´t mean they are no more relevant.
Actually there were some interesting threads from 2-3 months ago that didn't get many replies - it's like they sank into oblivion before anyone got to contribute to them. So I'm gonna resurrect some of them Um, but it'll have to wait till later.
Why not if the topic is still relevant, why create more threads for people to sift through if they're basically covering the same subject? I mean, I think it's silly when people respond to or try to continue a conversation from too long ago, but maybe it could still be relevant for others reading if not for the op.
I definitely don't mind is someone digs up an old thread, especially if it is relevant. I must admit when joining a new message board I tend to go through some older topics and reply to those that interest me. I am a natural lurker, so it is very hard for me to get involved in the "community" that is the message board by only staying to current topics, as I will then very likely post only on rare occasions.
Opps, I'm definately guilty of this. Its not so much that I like digging up old threads, but I have nothing to do so I just go though all the threads and read and reply to them if I have anything to contribute.
