Resurrection??

When is old too old? Happy

Let's say I'm searching the forum, find something on my topic but might still have a question.  The thread is...8 months old. Do I resurrect the dead or create a new thread/topic?  

 

thanks and happy cruising!!

I'd say start a new thread.  Sometimes info in a thread a few months old could have changed.  Just my opinion Happy

I would agree with starting a new thread, I is sometimes better to get a fresh perspective.

If someone resurrects an old thread it bounces to the top and shows up as new on the forum. (Not to be confused with "bumping"---"Bumping-Please do not manipulate postings on the boards by "bumping" topics to the top of the forum. Readers will assume something of value has been posted, only to find that the newest posting is nothing more than a "bump post". This only wastes everyone's time.")  

 

It depends upon the subject matter whether or not a new thread is necessary. If there are a lot of new developments pertinent to the subject at hand then perhaps an entirely new thread is warranted. In my opinion, it is a joke when a new thread is started days within posting of an almost identical subject and all opinion and comment in the new is redundant to the old. Often times when an older subject is resurrected it becomes more comprehensive than a new one allowing the reader to achieve a better understanding of the subject.
