Re: Necro bumping threads
Stupidity might play a role, but more often the "similar threads" feature and the search function will give results from the entire history of Jemsite, and it's easy to overlook the date. The font, color, layout . . .every aspect of the appearance is the same whether it's an old thread or new one.
A simple solution is for every post in a very old thread, you get a confirmation message along the lines of, "The last post in this thread was more than one year ago; do you still want to post your reply?"
