The dumbest rule on this site imho is the rule against bumping old inactive threads.

The site even encourages us to read old threads by showing similar old threads that nobody has replied to for a loong time (how I find old threads in the first place lmao) :p

Why does the age even matter? There's no need to create a new thread if there already exists a thread that has some relevancy to what I'm about to say.

Stop enforcing this rule, and remove it from the rule book, ok? :feelsstudy:

there is a reason why some threads need to stay old, they become irrelevant, or forgotten, if you want to continue a topic of an old thread so bad, create a new one with the same topic or as a continuation of the old one.
Nobody wants threads from many months ago, a forum is all about new content and new threads. That's how this and almost any forum works.

The forum does need new content but rarely anyone will stay around if there’s hardly any threads they can interact with. The rule makes sense on @looksmax and @incels because there’s enough users and new threads getting posted but with how small and inactive this forum is, it’s hard to solely interact with the few new threads getting posted regularly. You’d get bored too quickly.

I say we remove it or at least adjust it so users can interact with threads for longer periods of time, say 3 months.

They respond to old threads because they appear "as similar threads", the don't bother to read the date, I agree 2 maximum 3 months would make everyone happy, sounds fair enough.

Alright, fair enough. The rules actually don't specify anything against necroposting, it's only that warning sign that appears when you're going to post on an old thread that has some default text...

I'm going to disable that warning sign. Obviously, this doesn't mean you can spam - it means you can make the same kind of responses on old threads as you make nowadays on recent ones. "Bumping" threads is okay if you do it here and there for good reason, just don't go overboard please.
This also should help with the "posting similar threads" problem: If you can necropost freely, you can just respond to the relevant threads instead of making a new one.

I've explained this in the rules:
  • Necropost is allowed (posting in old threads), as long as you aren't blatantly "bumping" threads for no reason. (a.k.a. don't spam)
Thanks for the feedback, it helps.

Yeah. I made a thread about it. I expained how "the rule against necroposting" was only a suggestion and not a real rule as this thread implied. But based jannie Haruhi Suzumiya @Haruhi Suzumiya deleted it without giving a reason why :feelseheh:

Would it be possible to drop my warning % back to zero, because I'm actually quite close to being banned. I haven't broken any rules tho :feelsstudy:

Only bumping multiple threads at a time should be disallowed. Otherwise, bumping a single thread with a "low effort" responce to make it visible again is reasonable.
Also, the OP of a thread should have the option to lock his/her own thread after it's more than a day old.

True but the thing is some low effort threads or joke/meme threads are irrelevant, so no necro posting doesn't mean anyone can revive any kind of very old threads by spamming, but of course reviving some threads you wish to be continued is welcomed. :feelsok:
