Necrobumping causes suicide.


I was right all along.

Not if it's still relevant. Why make a new one if another still exists?

I really like to see the older threads brought back, esp. questions.

Nah, such a rule might stop that kiki chick from doing her million questions, but it'd also stop people from resurrecting interesting threads in other forums.
Didn't you do one in music just the other day?

I like seeing old classic questions, but when it's an irrelevant news article from 2003, I don't like it

Yes, I do it in music pretty often because I don't want to make a new thread for an old band.

I mean mostly about the Kiki links

I this term.

Without necrobumping, kiki would have nothing to do.

The only ones that bother me are the noobs who bring back old journals completely randomly that arent interesting whatsoever with comments that dont even add anything to the jounal.

Questions being brought back doesnt bother me at all, because sometimes its actually interesting to see the follow up. I mean, I agree, when theres follow ups posted on questions that got very few/no comments- thats kind of pointless but it shouldnt be worth a warning.

I'm glad you explained that. I thought it was posting pics of dead people, which is certainly not PG 13.
11 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 2/5/10 - 10:16:02 AM EST (GMT-5)
If one doesn't like the thread, why wouln't they just skip it.
On the other hand, anything to piss Kiki off is OK in my book.
11 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 2/5/10 - 10:17:11 AM EST (GMT-5)
How about we just have a rule to ban Kiki from posting links and questions?

Sounds good to me.

I couldn't care less if an old thread gets bumped. It's better than thousands of repeat questions.

No. I like when people do this.

Necrobump!

Ahhh, but seriously, the questions forum isn't quite the same as other internet forums, or other parts of YT. There's a bank of questions you can browse randomly. That's even built in. If someone new joins the site then it makes perfect sense that they could chip in on an old question.

The problem with necrobumping is when you take a thread everyone's lost interest in and keep bringing it back to the top, moving more popular threads down. While there's still lots of discussion in the questions forum, a lot of comments are just one-offs.

lol

Good distinction, pi.

And sure, it can be a warnable offense, but it needs to follow guidelines similar to what pi said: "The problem with necrobumping is when you take a thread everyone's lost interest in and keep bringing it back to the top, moving more popular threads down." Bringing back questions that haven't been commented on in a long time is not inherently bad form.

I think that being an uptight asshole bitch ass bitch should be a bannable offense. And it should also get you killed.

You threatening me shaktahhd?
7 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 12/12/13 - 4:15:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nononononono, that was about someone else. Not you.

And that was during my weird mental breakdown that isn't happening anymore. I'm okay now.
7 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 12/12/13 - 4:16:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
Also, it's not about krm. And I don't feel that way about anyone right now. And I didn't really mean it.

Just a weird breakdown and it's all over now.

YT has become so dull that I'm resorting to necrobumping threads about necrobumping.

Nothing to see here. Move along.
