Toadsith (48) Why redo the topic when it has been discussed thoroughly in the past? If you read through the old thread and have something new to add, resurrect it. Otherwise one ends up writing the same commentary again and again.

pat362 (373) I'm for starting a new thread because some of them have multiple pages to them and I don't know if everyone is willing to read through all of the comments before offering their view. The other thing is that opinions can change with time and having a new thread allows members to post a different view then they had in the older thread.

Capn (28) I think it depends on how relevant what you want to say is to the old thread.

If it is only of tenuous relevance start afresh, if not resurrect it.

Cap'n. :0)

t9chome (0) On other forums a thread's not dead until it's been locked. I haven't seen locked threads here, though.

I guess if a thread is hundreds of replies long, nobody is gonna read all the posts, so it becomes a chance for new forumites to express their op.

OTOH, old hands may think it's beating a dead horse...

I think to be open to new people and encourage discussion new and old must be revisited. I know I have revived a few hundred myself if not more. But also post several new ones often.

CT so I am on the fence and truly do not care, I think keeping the community together is what is important !
I see other forums die in a year or so and why it can get slow here, there is always activity of some-kind.

jberryl69 (Disabled) I like old threads but if they are too long to sift through then a new thread, same subject would seem appropriate. I visited a few old threads and added to them but there are those threads out there that are too big, cept something ongoing like the movie thread because that sort of is a current thread.

I do feel weird sometimes contributing to an old thread. Makes me feel like I'm behind the times. At my age it's hard to catch up.

Drooler (220) "My old thread, I hope that it don't wind up dead ..."

(Y'know, My Old Flame?)

To me, threads have to mean more than a cup of crankcase coffee. We should take the long view. No need to get "trendy" about it. I can't get excited about contributing to a discussion knowing that it's going fall bass-ackwards into a rectangular pit.

So I'm with Toadsith on this one.

Besides, it's not dead. It's just sleeping! (There! I saw it move!)

elephant (67) I'm not too bothered to be honest, if its still relevant, bring up an old, no big deal to me.

gaypornolover (38) Revisit the dead one, definitely - otherwise you just get multiple threads about the same thing and it gets confusing. I know threads sometimes go off topic, but you can just post a new message dragging it back to the original topic!

hodayathink (18) Bring back the old. For the people who's opinions have changed since they last posted in the thread, you can easily take the time to quote your post and state why your opinion has changed, if you'd like.

otoh (54) REPLY TO #2 - pat362 :

It's not something I'm too worry about either way. I was going to say revisit, but actually pat326's points are very valid - a long older thread can be clumsy to navigate; and also, we are a fickle bunch so it's good to think about things again in a new light, and with the input of newer members.

graymane (33) I revisit old threads often. I find they still have spark and continue to entertain. It's too bad this practice hasn't taken hold.

BadMrFrosty (56) Although thread necromancy is annoying it can be useful in certain circumstances. If the original thread is still relevant then revive it. If the information is outdated, post a new one. Common sense for the win

RustyJ (145) Threads don't die. Unless things have totally changed, it's better to continute in an existing one.

yote78 (5) Depends on how interesting the thread was in the first place and/or how well the issue(s) discussed were resolved.

slategrey (13) Like many others it depends. If i posted something on an old thread i will usually revisit it to see updates, if i havent im usually looking forward to a new one.
