How about, instead of starting a topic in a new thread, a user in the forum can just use the search engine for existing threads focusing on the said topic and posting his comment about the said topic in that existing thread?

But that's the problem: People started complaining about others bumping old threads. While you can also be reprimanded for doing the opposite (making a new thread about a topic, which already has a thread).

I don't see the problem with replying to and reviving an old thread if someone has something to say and wants to see if anyone else does either.
I am an old thread,I should be deleted.

I agree.
Besides, sometimes it is nice to see those old threads... Reminisce about the old times.

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.


I know this is over a year old, but I was just reading here, this is my first time on this particualr forum. But I agree with this,, I HATE one-word replies.

I hate posting a topic and someone just replies with, "no" or "ok"


I think a 5 word min. would be good, I just sooo hate one or two word responses/

I even hate that stuff in texting.

It's so annoying to write someone a whole paragraph, pour out a whole situation to them and they just reply with, "ok", or "lol" or "OIC" gggrrr lol

I think at Youtube there is like a 3 word min. which is good.

Well, I'm okay with the occasional short reply. If the whole thread consists of those, then we might have problem, but not otherwise.

And about the OT about reviving old, ancient threads, I guess I can see both sides. I know sometimes when I come onto a forum for the first time... like on this particualr on for e.g. ... Sometimes I like to just scroll way back and read ancient threads and see what ppl were discussing years and years ago, and sometimes I will see an old topic that will peek my interest so I might give my 2 cents on it.... sometimes forgetting that what I'm replying to might be from a year like 2002 or 2003 lol

That would prolly be the best thing. I mean if the mods and admins don't want you to reply to older threads then they should maybe make the read-only archieved like where you can read them but not be able to respond to them.

But it IS a fine line. I know some forums I have been on don't want you to make a duplicate thread or a thread that's similar to one that already exists, yet they also dont like to to bring older threads back to life, so what do you do? lol

My thinking on that has always been, if I don't find a thread similar to one I'm wanting to post on the 1st 2 pages, I make a new one, I don't like having to dig back through TONS and TONS and years worth of posts trying to find one that's similar to what I'm wanting to discuss, which is at one forum what they expected us to do.

I love reviving old threads to be honest and my thought is that any thread that the moderators don't want people replying to should just be closed. That's the easiest way to solve this.
