Necropost Warning... Ignore it zombies are fun!
« on: May 31, 2016, 07:01:10 PM »
I just posted in an older topic and got an automatic warning that the topic is inactive and I should start a new thread instead. I just wanted to bring this up as unlike most forums who do actively discourage "necroposting", HAF has always had long-running mega-threads that go inactive and come back, and has in the past encouraged adding new thoughts to old topics.

Yeah, there's no HAF rule about necroing old threads--people can if they want to. That warning is part of the software for the site and should not discourage anybody who wants to open an old thread back up.

I suggest that if the warning can't be disabled, then this thread should be a sticky.

Excellent suggestion. Done.  ;)

I changed the title to reflect the fact that there is no issue and any thread can be brought back from the grave.
