Jesus and Lazarus threads
« on: November 12, 2020, 07:37:00 PM »

Do we have some people who are just resurrecting old threads for the fun of it?

It makes sense sometimes, but I get the feeling that some are doing it just to do it.

I replied to one in jest since they all seemed to come from 2011 for some reason.  That said, thus far aside from maybe one of those threads it has led to actual conversations.

Have noted myself there’s been a lot of necroposting going on lately.  It seems to be one person doing it.  It’s not really a big deal, I suppose.  It brings new things to the top of the “unread posts” link.

If you don't mind letting us know which person - it's not in the rooms I frequent but the mod staff can act.

It's Avalanchez71. However, he's resurrecting threads and actually adding legitimate content (usually), which is the same as what I did when I first joined in 2013 (thread about me).

Whatevs.

Some people are more concerned about a thread date than the content of the discussion. 

Personally for me, it's better than creating new threads about stuff already talked about.

The only thing I'm going to note is that in one of the threads Avalanchez71 necro'd, he complained that the links weren't working.  I pointed out to him that the thread was 11 years old.

The worst thread bump I know is reply #40 here. It was only slightly over 5 months, but it was a really bad bump.

San Franswhat?  Is they based off something or is that an Alanland ripoff?  Reply 12 made me laugh.

I'm intrigued by reply #70 in that thread and am curious how one creates a scrolling row of smileys like that.

Thanks. I hardly ever pay attention to the buttons (if I use the full editor at all) and had failed to notice that one.

Not complaining, just observing. It seems to be a pretty recent phenomenon all of a sudden.

Agreed, if there's a purpose to it. I dusted off one recently about US 460/Corridor Q since a section of the new road is going to open shortly.

I am reading items that are intriguing.  I like to know what may have come of something over time. We ask these questions all the time.  Like hey what route did US X take back in 1941?  Well now we have the chance to reflect on issues that may have come up in 2011 with the opportunity to answer some issues.  We have a database now that answers some questions posed.

I never understood the bias against creating new threads. If someone says "hey we had this conversation back in 2011" then great. I and many others weren't members then and there's usually new things to discuss since then. Nothing wrong with ignorance, if there's an interesting topic at hand.

So basically "necroposting"?

Please remember that while we allow necro-posting, you need to be adding meaningful content. As long as you are doing that, it's okay. But do think twice if you're doing so many of them.

Whether a team makes the playoffs isn't comparable to whether they are above .500. Part of making the playoffs is getting the wins when you need them to get in, which Brady/Belichick always found a way to do. That's skill. Being above .500 or below .500 is just however things shake out. That's luck.

If all I had seen were the subject line, I’d have assumed it was a fictional post about a tunnel from California to Japan.

Chiming in a bit late here, but as for my stance on necro-posting, I don't see an issue assuming a particular thread is still relevant in some fashion, and the poster is actually adding content to the thread. I don't remember who it was who said it earlier in this thread, but I'd rather have a necro-posted thread than a new thread on a repeated topic.

That's actually something I hated about other forums I've used: they prohibited posting on threads that were over a month old, and I always thought that stifled discussion.

If someone posts garbage to bump a thread, that's a different case.

Also, when I saw the title of this thread, for a brief moment I was thinking someone was asking if we could add a sub-board for religion.

And, while I'm here...
