    FactionHeir says (repeatedly) thread necromancy
    Thread necromancy is not good. If you want to talk about the thread in question, either
    a_ You want to write in it and explaining why you do this(give a good reason)
    b_ Create a new thread.

    I believe the guideline in the Citadel is anything with no new posts in the last two months is considered dead. I don't think it's an exact rule though, and I'm not sure if the same guideline applies for the whole Org.

    Generally moderator policy varies greatly across forums due to the high degree of autonomy we are often provided - the basic forum rules must be used as a guide for all actions, but a lot of things are not actually mentioned in the document, including thread bumping. These are the areas we can be flexible in and choose our own stances. There would probably be advantages to a more extensive set of rules and higher levels of consistency, although, as a member of a moderation team, I like running things my own way (to an extent).

    If I had to say when I would consider a thread to be past the point of just continuing the conversation as normal, I would say either after it was no longer on the first page and/or was over two weeks - three weeks old. As long as the input were constructive, I would tolerate it though, regardless of it not being how I personally would behave. Obviously a different stance may be/is being taken elsewhere.

    Personally, I feel that reviving any thread that's been inactive for more than 3 months or so usually qualifies as necromancy, and definitely if it's been more than 6 months. This is especially true if (as Omanes pointed out) a person posts something inane like "great thread!" -- if you're going to revive an older thread, then you should be making a substantive contribution to it.

    Thanks to Martok and Omanes for replies giving the Moderators viewpoint. Personally I would agree that anything unposted for say 3 months can be regarded as dead. As for "bumping", well it happens and every thread can't be stickied, but it probably is open to abuse. I would however argue, notwithstanding a certain degree of autonomy for mods and recognising that there can be exceptional cases either way, that this is an area where a greater degree of transparency and consistency of policy would be appropriate.

    I support it if it is needed, but too many times recently a certain member has been resurrecting 2-3 year old threads for no reason.


    I take the approach of: If in doubt, contact the local moderator with the thread and your suggested post.

    No worries, man; ask away. We try to keep the FAQ thread as uncluttered as possible, though, so you should probably start a separate thread for most questions.

    You have to wait for promotion, don't ask for it unless you have been active in the forums, posting friendly, burning camels, posting without L33t Speakz, burning camels and don't post spam!

    Did I say that you have to burn camels?

    Hello! I couldn't find anything in the FAQ about when you are given access to the Backroom. I'm able to enter the backroom but I can't see any threads there (there's just a message saying "There are no posts in this forum."). Could anyone enlighten me? :)

    Junior Members can also search most of the main forums: see the advanced search page for more details. You can check you posting privileges for any given forum by checking the Posting Rules box, usually at the top left corner of your screen.
    Where exactly can I find that Posting Rules box. I don’t see anything like that at the top left corner of my screen...?

    Edit: Or is that meant to be the "Posting Permissions" box at the lower right of the screen?

    I think it might mean the Posting Permissions in the lower right. We remodeled the forums once or twice but it has been a quite a while since the FAQs have been updated, so they are a bit out of date with some information.
