    They seem to be rising from the dead at the moment.

    For some reason....

    I do wonder what the motives are for resurrecting zombie threads.

    I ''resurrect'' old threads of mine because I see them as an ongoing exercise in a topic I find interesting.


    So this thread, any time I see a positive story about Muslims, I post it there.

    This thread: https://community.tes.com/threads/the-future-of-the-west-space.743360/ I post on because the subject interests me and I update my thinking through it.

    I find it more odd to start to a whole thread just to criticise other posters for how they post.

    I saw no criticism in the OP?

    I too was wondering about the resurrected threads, namely because it's quite unusual.

    Not as odd as actively searching out a year old thread that no one has posted on. That is odd. Or unusual.

    No... that'd be the point of a forum... for people to read and discuss...

    What's more, if there's one thing that spoils a peach melba it's the ruddy peach.

    Bless. Of course that's why Vince actively searched out and ressurected a year old thread......I wonder how long it took him to search out those threads?

    One advantage of a forum (over, say, a discussion on a group within Facebook) is that one can revisit threads from the past.

    It is against the T&C to 'revive or resurrect' old threads.

    Bit weird - why keep threads past a certain date if we're not supposed to post to them? Tell you what, though, there's certainly something in there about multiple accounts.

    Ideas have a sell by date?

    Eeek don't tell the Marxists!
