Recently the moderating team has been hit with reports of some threads being necro'd by a new member. The existing guidelines actually protected members from reprisal outside of "you are stupid", so to prevent further disruption of forum activity, I've rewritten the thread revival guideline as follows.

QUOTE
Reviving topics is defined as replying to a thread where the last post was made more than 30 days ago. Thread necro is defined as unnecessarily reviving a topic that has ceased discussion entirely at least one year - 365 days - ago. Unless the thread necro actually returns discussion to the thread, via conversation between at least two members that is on topic, the thread necro will result in an actual warning. Repeated offenses will result in a post ban, length determined by the moderating team.


If this does not make sense, let me know and I can rewrite the language to be more concise.

This guideline rewrite is not retroactive, so existing necros are not going to be acted upon (although the member in question is getting a talking-to). Anything reported from today onward will be acted upon via the current guideline as it is written.

Be sure to tell another mod to handle it so I'm not nitpicking and contradicting myself. wink2.gif

If anyone wants clarification on what this means in application, it's this: If you cannot 110% guarantee yourself that your post is interesting enough, informative enough, contributive enough, or what-have-you to actually bring discussion back to the thread, we will 110% guarantee you a +33% warn level.

I'm with you there, except that it should really be a lot higher when threads exceed 10 years in age. Seriously.

I wanted said member to revive the What's In Your Keychain thread so I could brag about all the animu keychains I carry dangling off my lanyard... Srsly, this thing looks like a Buddhist X-Mas Tree plus a giant dead cockroach inside a power steering box!? But alas, keychains aren't as popular as they once were back in my day, when we used to do the Twist~ ♫

I alcohol 120% agree with Spaz on this one. Pics or Great Teacher F#ckin' Onizuka~ biggrin.gif

Only problem with that would be that sometimes, very occasionally, they'll have something of value to add to the discussion.

On the other hand, ten years? Not bloody likely.

The rule makes complete sense, maybe you guys should throw in some code or rule regarding new member accounts; maybe have those accounts only able to post in threads that are say at most 6 months old until they reach some sort of milestone (say 20 posts or having been a member for some period of time)?

That would be a lot of work for very few results. Thread necro is not a rampant issue, but a recent uptick caused the guideline to be given a tweak.

Just keep reporting anything you guys see and we inefficient humans will work on it.

the Victor Frankenstein that can be referred here is me. while I do not go on shouting "It's alive... it's alive" when I revived the old thread, actualy I thought I was doing the right thing.

I have been to forums before where in you just make a new thread, the members will say like "use the search button" or " the topic has been discussed " or " stop beating a dead horse" and other stuff.

So I did some back reading and saw that there are topics that are actually of interest to me. and I replied to it.

and besides what is my financial gain if I revive an old thread? what harm can it do?

well anyway since this is your forum, I will abide with your rules. but picture this, I have been a fan of Initial D since 2001 and I do not have someone to talk about it. in my area, if you are 18 years old and up and are still watching cartoons, people will think there is something wrong with you. so lo and behold, I found a forum with grown men talking about my favorite cartoons. so yeah, I kinda like it here.

Do I still want to revive old thread? yeah I want to but I won't because you guys are getting angry about it .

At this point you could just make a new thread, as almost everybody here does not remember threads from 2003 to call you on it.

Exactly. If you're making a new thread for a topic that's still right there on the front page, then we'll roll our eyes and point it out.

When you bring back 20+ threads from 2003-2004, that's when we get irritated. It's totally cool to have something you wanna talk about, and nobody's gonna judge you for being a thirty-something who's into Anime. Plenty of folks like that. Just don't ask ghosts of members long gone to engage in that conversation. wink2.gif

Is this first part necessary? I mean, just glancing through the rules again, there really aren't any penalties for reviving a topic that was last posted in between 31 and 365 days inclusively.

Edit: Typo fix.

I believe that was in the original guideline. I didn't remove it as I was focused on the necro part.

Fair enough. Can we remove it, or do you believe it still adds value?

I do not have any plans on reviving old thread but why do you guys hate it? I know it is in the rules for some reason but what harm can it do?
