I would say it depends on the reason, we are advised to post in existing threads. I have only seen complaints when someone is trolling or spamming. So far, nobody has told me that I am a "Horrible Necromancer"...




III. Posting New Threads



Use the Search Function

Before you post a thread, use the search function to see if anyone else has posted the same topic. It's better to post in an existing thread than to start a new one.

just use your own judgement, it would pointless posting in a thread "Will we ever catch saddam" or who will win the 2000 World Cup!


there`s no Law against bringing back an old thread if the new data has merit :)

Bringing up old threads when you have nothing to say, is really annoying though.
The worst is when the Necromancer meets the Post Whore and you get old threads with new comments like, "I agree" "LOL" and "Looks good".


There is a special level of Hell for those people, the same one reserved for child molesters and people who talk at the theatre. *

it can be requested that it be re-opened if the new post is submitted priorly to a member of staff and a sufficient reason is provided Why this new post should be added.


Bribes are not Unacceptable either, but I didn`t say that ;)

I might open an old closed thread for Physia if (s)he reduced the type size in her signature. I dislike being distracted by disturbing displays (sorry if it seems like I'm dissing you).


Answers my question well enough.


Thank you.
