    Hi everyone.
    I just wanted to make the admins aware that, over the course of the past several months, a number of topics from last year and earlier were "brought back from the dead" as people had bumped the topic which had been dead for a long time. Could we look into this please? Thanks!

    I don't see a problem with it. If its something minor why not add to that discussion instead of opening a new message?

    Agreed. The forum wouldn't archive old threads and leave them open for new posts if we weren't meant to use them anymore.

    A full investigation revealed it was the Russians.

    I love all threads equally regardless of their time of conception.

    If it's new information being presented in an old thread, what's the issue?

    I don't see a problem with bumping old threads. Especially since I've noticed on a few occasions when people start new threads on topics that have existed in the past, they are directed to those old threads.

    I don't see the problem. I enjoy sometimes looking back to see what we originally thought were rumors, turn into reality ( See Muppets in Liberty Square thread..!!). If you don't like a "bumped" thread, don't read it...
