Archives » Why is thread necro bad in the suggestion forum?
Christopher Eagles

If a thread does exist and you have something new to bring to a discussion use that old thread, if it’s locked contact a moderator and if they agree you have something to contribute to the discussion they will unlock it.

- "thread rules"
 


Is that not requesting thread necro?

Also it saves us having tonnes of threads on the same topic, locking it doesn't help why can't it just be left go away on its own again like it did the first time?

As the person who wrote those rules it was intended at the time that people could revive old topics that went unresolved so as to avoid repeated discussion of points already covered.

I'm not sure why others have decided the meaningful revival of still relevant threads is grounds for closure.

Meaningful revival = good

"is this ever going to get fucking coded?" = bad


Indeed, most of the suggestion thread necros are just one form of: bump.

Those that add something to the discussion, or otherwise move it along will be left alone.
