Thread Necromancy...

Postby Philsuma » Thu Aug 04, 2011 2:42 pm

Meaning - "Resurrecting an old thread and bringing it back from the dead".

Go ahead and try it. Dust one off and add a little something to it and see if it catches. It's actually pretty fun and an easy way of jumping in without the pressure of a whole new Topic ect.

Remember...."What's old is new again". The new people can gain valuable info from being "directed" to an old thread. If you post on it - in effect, bumping it....they are more inclined to notice a thread where an older more experienced hobbyist has dug up and highlighted for good reason. They would possibly have never found and read it otherwise.

Very important IMO.
