    Posting in old threads

    Since I'm new here, I am going through the old threads. I hope nobody minds me replying to some of these. I figured threads would be locked if they are supposed to be "dead". Since each community has different rules about posting to old threads, I just thought I would be a swell guy and ask first.

    WELCOME! I'm in Milwaukee.

    Go for it! We love to revive old threads wlth new blood. I find the "archive view" bottom right of screen choice to be the easiest way to go through all the old thread titles in a jiffy.

    We LOVE it when our incredibly interesting threads get new attention. Oh, yes, if it is open, it is fair game

    Please bump my obese woman grafts to couch thread. And Goddess Bunny. So much gold everywhere.

    Hi Happy Squid - Like Belle said, it is completely okay to post in old threads. Please feel free to revive any old threads, especially about deceased people. (Much better than starting a duplicate thread regarding said issue, which will just be merged into the original thread, anyway!)

    Thanks. I'm pretty good about checking for repetition before starting a thread.

    I'd like to see some of the original threads come back from the dead. There are SO many new people now then when we first got started so it would be nice to get some fresh thoughts on old topics. Welcome!

    Exactly. When I joined, one of the first threads I posted on was Brandon Lee. Hint hint. I don't have a clue why.

    I just want to say I love this place, and the members of this community are first class. I wish the mods and admins would clean up the html goofs in the threads (it's BB, folks). I offer my services if ever needed. I am a stickler for clean code and grammar.


    xoxoxox,

    Good to see some of the old threads come back and get a new lease of life. Besides, since some of them were originally posted, fresh info may be available and the newer members get to see them as well. All good.

    I do that all the time. I search if theres nothing interesting. Some people at other boards get offended if old threads come up because they have already responded to them. Well I think everyone should be given the oppurunity to have their say. And to heck with the haters. Can I get an Amen folks???

    Amen!

    That always bothered me, too, on other boards. Everyone should be able to read and respond, and new information often pops up, or some dishy new biography is written about someone, which we of course must discuss!

    'necroing' older threads

    i know a lot of forums get pissy when you necro a thread that hasn't been written on for a long time, but because a thread of a deceased person i might like to ask a question about or add some information might be last written about back a few years ago and buried out in the many back pages is that okay if i bring that person back to the front page? i don't want to start a new thread on someone if they already have a thread about them.... thankies!~~~

    I love when people bump. The older stuff is much more criminal oriented and I read about crimes I didn't know about.

    Bump away, but please do a search before you ask questions like that. And if you can't find one, contact a moderator about FAD policies.
