Necro-bumping (Namely posting in a non-Official/Moderator approved thread 30 days after the most recent post) will be treated as a form of spamming if the post in question has no valid reason for being posted, or treated as a form of flaming/trolling if the post in question is malicious in its intent. It will be up to the Moderator to rule on whether a necro-bumped post is pertinent or not

I think it is a bit silly that you have to ask permission or get an okay for necro bumpin thread because like 95% of the users probably don't know about this rule =p.

That doesn't even say you have to ask for permission (which would be a stupid thing anyway).

"It will be up to the Moderator to rule on whether a necro-bumped post is pertinent or not" is the only bit that mentions a moderator and absolutely does not say that you have to ask permission before hand. To me that just suggests the moderator looking at a necrobumped thread/report will decide whether it was pertinent or not, rather than you have to check with them beforehand.

It should be, our bad, I'll have a chat with the team whether we need the rule/to include it, I've given my thoughts already that as long as people follow the middle part of the rule, I'm not going to moderate them for not asking for permission, that's just me personally and It would be really rare if we do so.



Thats the dumbest shit i have seen you guys add recently. Im deffo not going to ask if i am allowed to post in my gen 8 lifetime prediction thread. Is every user expected sit and kneel while we at it?

After a lengthy discussion, I've edited the content of the Necrobump Rule Bullet. Hopefully, a little more clarity is obtained through it. 


  • Necro-bumping (Namely posting in a non-Official/Moderator approved thread 30 days after the most recent post) will be treated as a form of Spamming if the post has no valid reason for being posted, or treated as a form of Flaming/Trolling if the post in question is malicious in its intent. While every necrobump won't require permission, if you are unsure, check with a Moderator.


                                                                                                                                            

Damn. Kirby, you're pretty ornery today.

I created a thread in which I made predictions for throughout and the end of the 2018 year for hardware sales.  Some of my predictions came true, and one will come true soon.  2 out of 3 were on par and my third one was way off (and will not come to be), but was the one that gathered the most hate.  I wanted to bump it in Jan 2019 to admit I got one way wrong.  The thread has not garnered any attention within recent history.

I have a question in light of reaction to thread locking is it possible to lock a person(s) from a thread rather than banning or thread locking,
Ps . do we now have two head mods ? or am I just slow on the uptake.

To your PS. We have THREE head mods, lol. Miguel, CGI and Ryuu.

As for your question itself, we can advise people not to go into threads, but we can't outright make the threads inaccessible to them... unless we lock the threads, lol. 



Yes individuals can be prevented   discouraged from posting in certain threads.
