    You posted in a thread where the previous post was over two years old. "Necroing" threads is frowned upon.

    I always laugh at these situations.

    Poster A: "Use the Search Function!"

    Poster B: "I did!"

    Poster C: "Don't necro threads!"

    Poster B: What's the point in the Search Function again?"

    It's a Catch 22 situation, you can't really win so just laugh.

    using the search function to find an answer to a question that's been asked 100 times so you aren't adding post #101 asking the same d*** thing is one thing. posting a random message on a 2 year old 'look at what i did!" fun thread is something else entirely.


    seems simple enough to me

    In this case I would tend to agree but let's face it, Thread Necromancy is nothing new, nor is it specific to DDO.

    Any Forum that's been going a while will see it and often with the same results.

    Personally I've never been too bothered about Necro's. Sure some of the participants of the thread may have moved on, but if the topic is still relevant in some way then why clutter up the Forums with Thread number 704 when one already exists? Just seems like it would save resources a bit.
