Thread Necromancy

Jump to: navigation, search


A thread is considered dead when no one has posted on it in so much time it's gone past the third page in the Board's thread list. Thus, thread necromancy is an attempt to make the thread come back to life by replying to it. Thread necromancy is considered not only a Bad Thing, but also a shooting offense unless the resurrection is completely justified (for example, a fanfic that's updated after a long hiatus). Even then, it's often better to make a new thread and to link to the old one, warning people so they don't post to the old thread.
