Say if a thread is still relevant? how long would it take to be consider a necro if you were to post in such a thread?

    After 6 hours but before 24. The stench really becomes unbearable in this kind of heat.

    If the last post was over a month ago, just start a new thread.

    If a thread hasn't had a new post in at least a month or 2 it's best to let it be.

    Personally I'd say at least 3 months but mods beg to differ lol

    depends on how itchy the mods are feeling..... look for the 'what do you look like' thread and make your own judgement

    Seems pretty stupid if the thread is still relevant.

    In case of my latest faux pas with a sleepy thread, it was the first to pop up when i searched the subject on here. It had a lot of good info in it and i simply added my comment about how it was still not fixed.

    Yes, the original thread was from July but the issue has *NOT* been fixed, so my post was certainly relevant.
    Again, seems pretty stupid to lock that thread after my post.

    How about ZOS fixes bugs instead so we don't have to reanimate older threads...

    If it were that simple it'd already be done lol

    They can't just fix bugs like that. They do that, and other even worse bugs might spring up. It's a long and tedious process to fix bugs correctly.

    Some forum engine has feature to auto lock thread that hasn't been replied for a long time to prevent necro bumping. Why don't we have that here as well?

    Are you a game developer? It probably works differently.

    Well, I wouldn't really know. Could be a problem of just lacking a big enough team to fix the massive amount of bugs that come up.

    It also depends on the bug and the game. Also 35+ years? Just how old are you lol

    I'm sure they'd be very grateful if you were to set them straight as to where they've been going wrong all this time.

    Pick any forum category and move 10 pages down. Pick any thread on that page. That thread is dead. Post in that thread. That thread moves to front page.

    Now let's take a look a random forum-goer Joe. Joe sees a new thread on the front page. Joe looks at this "new" thread. Joe reads something he (dis)agrees with, so he posts about it. Joe continues reading, and finds a reference to something long ago as if it just happened. Joe thinks this is weird, so Joe looks at the date. Joe realizes he posted in a long since dead thread and gets annoyed.

    But now that Joe posted in this thread, it moves back to the top of the front page, stumbling around and catching other unwitting forum-goers off guard while mumbling "brains...". The masses cry out for help, and their cries are answered by the righteous forum moderators. The moderators know what to do, and they take swift action, locking the revived thread. Everyone watches as the reanimated thread slowly falls down to the second page re-dying a slow death.

    Let the dead lie. Do not use thread necromancy, for the safety of us all.

    I am mildly disturbed that my name is in the example but I also know it is the same name used in the "average Joe" scenarios lol

    Still ironic though :p

    I tried. Actually, a lot of us closed beta testers did. There were quite a few with gaming related coding experience.
    We warned them months before launch about their trusted client implementation. They didn't listen.

    I don't know if you were around for the PC launch, but many here still remember that ***.
