Someone said :
I was reading old threads from way back in 2002. In one of these threads opened in 2002, was bumped in 2006. A moderator requested that we refrain from bumping old threads that are 2, 3 or 4 years old, as it's pointless.
On the whole I would agree with him, but sometimes, just sometimes, it would be worth it. For example today a new thread was opened on an issue that made the news 3 years ago. There was also an old thread, 3 years old.
Bear in mind that the example I gave was just an example. I'm talking generally here, not about that specific thread.
So, to bump or not to bump?
What do you think?
Whats wrong with bumping an old thread if it offers valuable/interesting input for a newbie who has only just become aware of an issue that took place 5 years ago?
Big difference from bumping an old thread that was nonsense.
