Probably...but "bumps" often spark others to comment in more detail.

It would be funny if five or six years from now, someone posted on this thread, "I agree."

I agree.

Really, I do. I get your point. I am a member on another forum (have been for over 10 years) and one of the rules there is your post must contribute to the conversation. There are no one word posts allowed such as:

LOL
ITA (I too agree)
Really?
Why?
WTH?
No
Yes

nor can you just post, "I agree". There has to be something on topic that pertains to the subject matter. It cuts down on unnecessary posting that adds nothing to the conversation so there is a smooth flow for reading. Anyone who does that, has their posts immediately deleted.

JMO on this matter.

At one forum, I was harassed for making new threads about a topic, when there already was a thread about it, even if no one had posted there for ages. And at another forum, I was harassed for the opposite, that I bumped old threads. Both these forums had some really rude members though, and I still feel bad when thinking of them. But I don't see how either making a new thread or bumping an old thread can be so terrible.

My only issue with bumping a old thread is it maybe from 2005 and most of the members are no longer on the site. If someone bumps a thread from May of 2012 then it's a good chance those members who participated in those discussions are likely still around

I totally see your point for sure. I think sometimes however it's okay to bump an old thread if it is still relevant or there is something new to add to the conversation. And Frankly, sometimes it's just fun to see what we used to think....

I guess it's a matter of different strokes for different folks?

I guess you can bump an old thread. For ex., I have been on this board since Mar. 2011. If I see a thread from 2008 that I want to respond to, would it be ok to respond? I wasnt on the board in 2008 but I cant respond to an old thread, can you just make a new thread??

Respond to any thread you want, thats what there for. Sure you can make a new one, the most logical thing to do would just respond to the old thread. It keeps the boards from having to many duplicates.

I think as long as you don't just bump up a thread to say "I agree" it would be okay. 2008 isn't that long ago. Sometimes I forgot about the thread and I enjoy reading them again. Maybe if the thread is from 2000-2004 or something like that, it would be better to start a new one though. I actually remember about 5 years ago, I would get bored and just go to the old sitcom boards and post on old threads. lol

Thank you, that's the whole point of the entire thread. Someone responding to a thread created in 2008 to say "I agree" is just beyond weird. Makes it look like a person is bored out of their mind or just flat out wacky

You're right, I was going to respond to a Corner Gas thread, but then thought, what's the point, eh?

If the powers that be don't want old threads being bumped, then they shouldn't be archived. I have never been on a message board where people got taken to task over responding to an old thread.

Kind of silly, if you ask me.

Nothing wrong with replying to a old thread as long as it's not...."I agree"


Why respond to a old thread to say nothing?
