forum standards for posting on very old threads
« on: November 29, 2017, 05:52:35 PM »
Hi everyone,
I just listened to a story from 2010 and had some thoughts about it. This warning was on top of the comment window

Warning: this topic has not been posted in for at least 120 days.
Unless you're sure you want to reply, please consider starting a new topic.

Is it discouraged to post on old threads? Would it make sense to start a new thread?

Threadomancy is absolutely encouraged, particularly about stories.

Please do not start new topics for discussion of individual stories.  :)
All cat stories start with this statement: “My mother, who was the first cat, told me this...”

Thanks! Making new threads didn't seem like a good idea to me either. (would that be thread cloning as opposed to threadomancy?)
