You say that like it's a bad thing.

I wouldn't have that lag problem if I knew how to find the damned threads again. I'm still looking for the one where some of the guys were showing off their handwriting.

Don't ever underestimate my duh factor.

Not the most outrageous example of thread necromancy I've seen, but still....

Two muffins were baking in an oven. One turns to the other and says "sure is hot in here." The other replies "AH TALKING MUFFIN!"

二つのマフィンがオーブンで焼かれていた。片方のマフィンがもう一方のマフィンに向かって、"暑いね”と言った。すると、話しかけられたほうのマフィンは"アッ!喋るマフィンだ!”と驚いた。 :)

could someone please explain to me like if am a 25 year old kid exactly what is the problem with thread necromancy? you make it sound like your grand-grand-grand-dad eternal rest is interruped, or something. even the more so if the new post (like it was in this case) adds something new besides mocking the others...

Usually the new post doesn't add anything new (I've seen a lot of old old threads reopened for an "oh, that's interesting. Thanks for the info." type reply).

There are a few reasons bringing up old threads is bad:
1. None of us will remember the thread at first, and we will spend 10 minutes reading something we've already read a year ago, wondering how a very familiar (but seemingly new) thread appeared over night. Then once we notice the date, we feel stupid and annoyed at having wasted our time.

2. We will remember the thread, and won't bother to read it because we remember the question being answered or we remember the conversation getting off-track. In this case, if the necromancer has a legitimate question, they won't receive any replies because everyone is purposely avoiding the thread. It would be much better for them to start a new thread.

It's just confusing and time-wasting, as keat said. You read a thread that you think is new, but then you later realize you wasted your time.

solid snail, there really isn't anything wrong with it, just some people find it a waste of time.. if the thread that is reawakened helped you or another new person, well, then it helped you..

however since this forum doesn't have a "thread burial" procedure, alot of threads that were put to rest come back to haunt certain people.. Maybe the admins should converse and create a burial area where defunct, not informative and generally off topic threads can go to rest and never be bothered with again..

If the context of the old thread is essential to the meaning of the new post, it's kind of like trying to add to a verbal discussion weeks later. "OK guys, I wanna tell you something. You remember that thing we were talking about last year? No? Well, then I'll just recap everything we said. It will only take 15 minutes or so. Don't worry, I promise it will be worth it!!"

The thing is, anything short of "I found a cure for stupidity" or "Rena Tanaka said she'd go on a date with you" is not going to be worth it.

If it's not dependent on context, then everything is fine. Just start a new thread.
