OK this is something that's been bothering me for a while, and is in no way directed at you personally, Ottoatm.
Personally I don't think digging up old threads is as much the problem. Don't dig up old threads unless you have something insightful to say? I think that's the wrong message. Shouldn't it be: don't post unless you have something insightful to say.
Whether a thread is old or not is something that keeps being thrown around here as a reason why people shouldn't post "stupid messages" in old threads, but really, people shouldn't post "stupid messages" either way. The same goes for new threads. Why do old threads always have to be brought up as the problem?
Is it because the veterans who have been a member since 2003 have already seen the topic and are too lazy to not click a topic? I agree that if nothing useful is added, it's pointless, but that does for new threads just as much as old threads, right?

Although I agree that quaraga's post in this case didn't add much to the discussion, and I admire that you answered his question regarding the story, but the little kick in the butt after that doesn't really seem in place to me. I don't mean to argue with a moderator, it's your job to keep the place clean, but don't lose out of sight the whole Classic-Castle vibe where we can all discuss our opinions on anything LEGO Castle related. Be it whether we think Vladek is evil or good, or whether set 93740394 is worth buying.

In fact, quaraga, I encourage and would enjoy a discussion on why certain evils from the history of castle are evil, or just misunderstood. A new topic for this would definately be a better place than someone's comic that he made almost 4 years ago.
Admittedly I hadn't seen this comic before because I wasn't a member at the time, so thanks for bringing it to my attention, however unlucky your approach.

Digging up old threads with a simple one line statement that has been stated over and over again is not a good practice. I'm trying to teach him not to do this practice - if this post was a new post, I would have been fine with it actually. He wasn't a member when people discussed this issue, so he has every right to ask it.

But as for digging up an old thread - we try to discourage that unless there is something really extensive to say - why?

Because there are a LOT of old threads here, and I am not lazy, but I am tired of re-reading them all, as are many others.

If that's the policy of course I'll abide. After all, you guys (admins & mods) make, know and enforce the rules.
But let me ask (out of curiosity, not out of protest!), why is that? I'm just wondering why it makes a difference if a thread is new or old. Again, that's not to protest, or to say I disagree, I'm just curious :)

I think it's mostly in the interests of maintaining some kind of chronology, instead of having threads from all different years jumbled together.

Wow, been nearly 4 years since I posted in this.
