Hello LO, various Mods, and Blackhat.
I'm begging to notice more and more old threads, long dead threads, often from over a year ago, being brought back to life by various members. I find this somewhat annoying, I feel it clutters the forum and potentially spreads bad information, as editions change, codex's update and FAQs are released. I doubt that the poster realizes they are committing 'Threadnomancy' as it is often called, I believe this happens when a member searches the forum for a topic and finds a post related to what they are interested in, but fails to consider the date of the last post. Then, in my experience, the post they leave is often an acute question that could be answer easily withen it's own thread, or they leave a comment of agreement with one of the various posters in the thread.
To my way of thinking it would be better for these instances to accur less often. I suggest the search function be restricted automatically to 1 year. Then under advanced search settings, one could turn this option off and search normally if they wish to.
I realise the forum already organises by date, which most likely works fine for common topics, its the acute tid bit of a question that is the problem.
I will second this.
I think the suggestion is for a time constraint as the default. This would reduce the incidence of old threads getting bumped on accident.
They might still be interesting to read for some. Its much easier if the members could just use 1 second of their time to turn their eyes on the last post date
