Title: Threadomancy?
Description: Reopening old topics

Hi all,

As a new member to this forum, I'm after some advice. On other forums I am a member of, threadomancy (aka the resurrection of long dead discussions) is frowned upon. However, as this seems to be more of a resource and collection of knowledge type forum, as opposed to a simple discussion board, I figured that some of the older threads could be reopened to further the discussion based on recent BL releases. Examples of this would be the discussion topics on Primarch discovery order, librarians and chaplains.

So, can I ask, what is the general view on hreadomancy?

Thanks in advance!

If it's a topic that you feel you can add to in a constructive way (i.e. something other than 'OMG that's cool!' ) or want to continue the discussion there in some regard then of course it's permissible.

Same too if you have a question to ask about something in a thread - you may as well use the older thread as it saves people repeating themselves (especially when you look at the effort put into some of the essay-like replies) - in that case, please resurrect away! :)

Good question and thanks for asking!

Generally, threadromancy is frowned on if it doesn't add anything constructive to the thread. So resurrecting an ancient thread just to say 'wow cool' is a bit pointless.

On the other hand, if there is new information from recent books that is relevant to an old thread, then that's fine.



Dammit, ninja'd! :ph43r:

Cheers guys! Just gotta refind those threads, and remember what I wanted to post! (Then edit it to take out the 'wow this awesome' bits :lol: ).
