Forum etiquette on old posts

I'm relatively new here and am wondering about the etiquette on commenting on old posts.  I was searching and reading older posts about muster drills and saw some I thought to comment on but many were months and even years old.  Just how old is too old to bring an old thread back to life?

It's being done a lot here in the forum - particularly on slow days. I see nothing wrong with resurfacing still-valid issues - a lot can change in just a year - or even a few months (NCL has just announced punishing new "mandatory gratuities" effective 1 April). This is supposed to be a "forum" after all...

It depends on the topic and the experience of the criuser. If they're a newbie cruiser. The posts can help.

Thanks for the input.

Go for it.

Please comment on older posts to maybe make them relevant to discussion. I often look to see how the older posts relate to me.
