Old threads don't die. We just have to sweep off the cobwebs and "bump" them up.

KODAH! -Shoves Kodah into portal.- OUT! Your input is not needed if it is going to be rude remarks. For you, Fafnir, I can only tell you my reasons:

 

1. Some old threads are just no longer active, which means it has been closed or nobody really bothers to reply. So that thread has kind of expired.

 

2. For really old threads, it is the same thing, but I also think that some people have a hard time dealing with these threads because SAMBers that used to be their friends have now left.

 

3. Some people are grouchy about these things and I don't no why.

 

My advice is that for REALLY old threads (like years ago), is don't bother with them. If you have a thread you want to keep active, simply bump it so people are still reminded to see it. If it hadn't got any replies in a while, just leave it be. I think when some people see a no longer active thread popping up over, over, and over they get kind of annoyed. I hope this helps.

Old threads have no relevance to the forum anymore. They are often embarrassing, no doubt outdated, and clutter up the front page.

People don't like it when old threads are bumped because it takes up space on the front page where a fresh, new thread, maybe a brand-new RP could be.

i'm not sure tbh

i get that some threads were conflicts, and they should be kept down, and bumping a long dead rp is annoying, but normal threads?

i invented the metaphorical use of "necromancy" for bumping old threads a while back, but i didn't really mean for it to be all serious like "this is necromancy and that is not accepted"

????

why????? tbh i sort of like old threads being bumped, as long as people aren't bumping like twenty and being annoying

but when they bump one or two???? that's fine 

it's fun to read, and personally, i don't think they should be treated that way

Comparing threads to humans isn't really an accurate metaphor. For people who have been around long enough to have plenty of posts in the archives, it's rather embarrassing if an old thread of yours gets bumped. Would you like it if a video of you three years before gets passed around the school? No, no you wouldn't. Some people may think that is is fun to watch, but you are not that person any more, and you would prefer to be allowed to move on with your life and not be constantly reminded of things you may have been trying to move on from. Bumping an old post is not seriously offensive, but it's more polite to just read old threads and keep them archived, if you really feel the pressing need to read them at all.

A, it clogs up the front page. 

 

B, A lot of us are ashamed of our old selves. If you have any respect for us, don't bump them up. 

 

C, What's the point? The past is the past. 

 

D, That being said, old mod posts and stories and skits are often acceptable.

Some reasons that people don't like it are:

 

1. They are no longer relevent.

  -As others stated above, the old posts are no longer relevant and just clutter the front page where new, relevant posts could be.

 

2. The posts are from oldies who were newbies back then.

  -The people who have been on the SAMB for a long time may have posted it when they were new, and some may not appreciate having their old, cringey post on the front page.

 

That's all the reasons I have for now.

what rain said. we really have no need for them to be around, if you wanna revive that sort of topic then make your own thread, dont go for the horribly old four-years-without-a-reply ones because theyre outdated and unnecessary and theres really no point in trying to continue a discussion that old as opposed to starting a new one. though, from the looks of it you just seem to be replying for the sake of it, which (as rain said) clutters the front page from things people actually want each other to see and such, like rps where youre waiting on someone to pov or chat threads

For many old threads, the people who created them aren't even here anymore. Yeah, it's cool to see the old stuff floating around here, but you can enjoy it without sending them to the front page after four years....

I sometimes go through the old threads myself, just because it's rather nice to see the humble beginnings of the forum, way back when people actually talked ably SA.

I guess if it is active it is ok. Month old RPs however... I'd leave those be. Why? Simple:

 

1. People from an older RP don't want to participate in it anymore either bc they lost interest or the story isn't really going anywhere anymore.

 

2. The RP's story has ended or "closed".

 

For any regular month old post can be different. Some ppl have said what is needed to say so the topic is done with. Reviving is usually ok but it really depends. You will eventually understand it when you have gotten used to the place. Some ppl get annoyed though when older posts "interfere" with the new ones that they want ppl to see. Any the viewers want to fresh posts so they can keep up. Just ignore this behavior, but don't get yourself too caught up in older posts. :)
