Sure no big deal, you're bored so you bump up old threads, then tell the Administrator that the staff should delete the old threads if we don't want them bumped up. Try that at another large message board and see how far you get. Be sure you use your moderator gun smilies and pour on the sarcasm. It's common sense. Why bump up very old threads when you can simply start a new one. Yeah, I'm sure the original poster would be offended, if they're still a member. The old threads are there for viewing. Nobody wants them deleted. TJ has talked about archiving them, but who knows.

Next time you're bored, find another way to amuse yourself. This Chit Chat forum is my responsibility, and I don't want it looking like like it's 2002. Okay, got that. I guess I learned a lesson here. Next time I issue a request, I guess I have to lock the thread.

I can't argue with you cause you are an admin althought I would love to so I will just end it with this post.

I dunno about you guys, but I don't waste my time looking at old threads unless they're something ~epic~ from years ago that is probably already locked (see: ~epic~ fights that everybody wants to forget about because the whole thing is just so stupid, they've already buried their hatchets, etc). Even so, that's rare. And also even so, if I'm that desperate to post my opinion... I just go ahead and make a new thread. Read: which is RARELY EVER, I barely make new threads these days and I"m sure only a handful of them are based on old threads of yesterday, if at all.

For example. Let's say someone was to bump up Brian Damage's thread from November -- you know, the one about badmouthing people on other boards that turned into an epic thread with 600+ posts. You just don't do that. It's all been talked out, people have buried their hatchets, hell, people who posted in that thread aren't posting here now. And it was only two MONTHS ago when that thread was made.

Really. There shouldn't be any questions about bumping up old threads. I'm more than sure TJ has said something about this in the past before, because I've been here long enough. This board is VERY large and VERY populated and has way more relaxed rules than any other board that I visit. I'd have my head bitten off big-time if I decided I wanted to go on a thread-bumping spree on larger boards with more strict rules.
i agree.

this is my personal opinion, not that there should be an official rule against it; but i don't think that "classic" threads should be bumped up after they've died down. ticonderoga pencil, outrageous fears, chit chat club...those type of threads that we still reference years later and still find hilarious. i remember being disappointed when my first thread about was bumped up after a year of inactivity. things like that should just be left in the past where all the lulz of it took place. maybe i'm sounding too sentimental about something so ridiculous, but like i said, that's just my opinion. it would be bizarre for someone to get warned/suspended for bumping up a thread that everyone thought was funny.

Totally ditto that. Same with Chad/TF/EFD/DA HOME GUY threads, as random and weird as they may be. Like the Do You Like Toilet Water thread ( twice LOL)

the stuffing thread being bumped once a year is tradition, though.

Yes, of course there have to be some exceptions. Thanksgiving at SO wouldn't be the same without it!!

yeah, i think there should be an occasinal exception allowed. maybe we could get permission if we want to bump up certain threads, like the stuffing one? i'm not going to push the rule, just suggesting.

I like that idea...plus it would be fair to everyone.

Yeah, I think there should be at least a written rule somewhere. I personally don't have a problem with people bumping up old threads. It can be kind of annoying, but it doesn't bother me. But, since it's obviously not appreciated by all, a rule would be nice.

Yeah, Sarah's a smart cookie. Monika, please don't feel that I'm referring to you. You're a sweetheart. There's nothing wrong with bumping up a thread that's a year or two old, even older. Moderation is the key to most anything. It's all common sense.

Thank you, Janice. Mainly I was bumping up old sitcom threads and not the Chit Chat ones, but I see your point. I agree with Ashlee that a written rule somewhere would help.

This is a good example of an older thread that got bumped up, and not just because I made it, lol. It's interesting, not embarrassing for anyone, and many members are still here.

http://www.sitcomsonline.com/boards/showthread.php?t=164953

Also, I often see new threads of subjects that I covered before, but I don't merge them or even mention it. Subjects are bound to get covered a few times over the years.
