Just wondering if there is any way that older threads, with a last post past a certain time frame (say 6 months or so) could be closed/locked en-mass. We're having a lot of threads 3, 4, even 5 years old being bumped either by accident or by... well you know :smile:
I think one of the reasons for this is the "related threads links" that appear at the bottom of a thread page. Most of those links are cool... but ancient!

I'd hate to see people unable to reopen/continue a past discussion just because it had fallen silent for a period of time.  Let us remember the following lines from the AR&G:

Nurture the community memory, pointing newcomers to archives, providing links to related conversations, past and present, hunting down resources to add to the collective pool of knowledge -- and teaching others to do it.  Be the memory of the conference -- point and link to relevant info in the past or elsewhere in the community. Encourage others to search, retrieve and link info that has been valued by other members of the shroomery and praise people who do so.


:wink:

Certainly, loosing access to the older threads would be a terrible loss for the community, and the referral threads can be great references.
As you said, linking to past threads is an important thing to teach and give experience. A thread a couple years old that needed to be revived, could be done at a mod or admin discretion, or simply appear as a link, in a new thread on the same subject.

I'm not really complaining, just thinking of some streamlining for the site!
Carry on guys, doing a fine job :smile:

Agreed! I'd much rather someone replies to a relevant year-old thread rather than starting a new one.

You just have to openly mock the people who bump for no reason. :wink:

I don't mind when people bump a thread by replying. What gets me is when people ghost-bump threads just to spam a forum.

I'd tell you but I'd have to kill you.

Seriously though, I would suggest that if you know, you keep it to yourself.  The last thing I want to do is sift through our logfiles to find out who went on a ghost bumping rampage and break out the ban stick :wink:

Hey leave those those old threads alone!
Somebody just recently bumped an old thread and I got to PM the good Professor himself!

Stop bitching Shdwstr, if it keeps going this way pretty soon I'll be able to PM Jesus Christ, and how cool would that be!

hahahahahaha...

The problem is definately the links at the bottom of the page. But they can be oh so useful as well.

I don't know much about bulletin board code. But would it be at all possible to have a message box pop up and say, "The post you are replying to was made over 3 months ago on the date mm/dd/yyyy. Are you sure you want to reply?"

So is ghost-bumping technically against the rules?

I don't think we should lock past topics. Once and a while you run into some wisdom that's been lost and you want some new opinions on why it isn't being done now etc and if we should

Anyone else have month 13?

Could it at least be a rule that if you bump a massively old thread and don't add content to it, you get banned overnight or something? If each noob tard bumps one old-ass thread without adding anything once, then gets harassed and maybe learns, we still have to deal with a lot of tard bumping.

Failing that, I'd think that it'd be better to have something you have to actively click past rather than a printed warning that reading isn't required. It isn't working, apparently.
