    Not so much as yes, but what I mean by this is repost that particular rule so that everyone know that they can receive an infraction for posting on a dead topic!

Imagine some of the current Debate threads we have now. Some of them are a 100+ posts long, and excede 15-20 pages. So, it dies, people have moved on from the discussion. Imagine some - usually new - person that comes along and re-opens the discussion. It'll be like hell. First, you'd have a 25 page thread that's been discussed. Secondly, most of the people originally posting on it have moved on from the thread, leaving it seemingly empty of discussion despite being put back on top of the thread list. Thirdly, the people who have never seen the thread before, will probably skip reading anything, and go straight into posting. Whatever they post will most likely be the same crap that's been said 3 and 4 times in the original 25 pages. It'll go on nonstop. Every 3 weeks some guy will come in, look at older threads and bump them.

    So, from that perspective, my own, I can see why we have the rule in place. And, as I was posting, I convinced 100% of me to keep it. Thus, I vote "No" to abolishment.
    i agree with this.. its no about the thread is unused or boring.. may be we just forget to talk about it.. and i vote "NO"...

    I say keep it. If no one wants to talk about that one thread then so be it. I'v two threads that havent had a post in days when 2 weeks come up i'll good bye to them with out a care, if the topics dead let it die, you can only say so much about one topic.

    I think it is safe to say that this matter has been brought up, discussed and handled.

    Re: Dead Thread Rule

    I remember when this rule was instated, it was instated around the same time the "similiar threads" displayed at the bottom of the screen. It was not very uncommon for a thread which had indeed lived past it's life expectancy (such as a thread discussing "what do you think game xxxxxx will be like when it's released next month" would without fail be 'revived' about three months later, long after the game had been released) to be revived and cause confusion.
