What is Necroposting? Empty What is Necroposting?

Post by Junnesejer on Tue Jan 31, 2012 9:42 am

I've simply found many necroposters, and many don't even know what necroposting is.
I do not mean that I only find necroposters here, but everywhere or actually anywhere else.

What is 'necroposting'?
Necroposting is an action that takes place when a user posts a comment on a thread that is older than 4 weeks. (a little over a month) Threads that are 4 weeks old or older have died. (not literally) Since the thread is more than 4 weeks old, posting on it would be seen as necroposting.

What does 'necroposting' mean?
Necroposting is a word that comes from the prefix necro- meaning dead. And posting. You know what posting is... It means you post on a thread. Necroposting means that you post on a dead thread. Usually, dead threads have died because they did not get enough support, or for other various reasons. Usually these threads are associated with 'Suggestions' or 'Help' tabs between fora's.

Now that I have clarified what necroposting is. I will also clarify this: NECROPOSTING IS AGAINST THE RULES.
So don't do it c: It will make the support staff's lives so much easier! Very Happy And make the Forums easier to browse.

So next time when you are about to post your opinion on a thread, be sure to check the date that the thread was created and then check the dates of the other people who have posted. If someone necroposted, refrain from posting after them!
So please, just let our staff close threads with necroposts, and do not comment after those!


Greetz and peace,
Junnesejer.

I know enough people who never look for the rules, but actually look in the general discussion and start reading it here.
I've done those things myself. :c
