It's pretty much lost its point by now...I'd like to see it opened again, but not many people left to comment on it...

BTW Why is everyone being so hard on Satty? Big deal, he locked a thread...Jeez, acting like he bombed China

It's just hobo getting on his high horse again because CF isn't run the way he wants it run....if ya ask me, he needs to grow up....or get out more....or both. Lets face it, if he had his way, CF would be full of old, revived threads and flaming....

Thank god he is the admin..none of us (well, I should say "you" seeing as how I haven't been here for a while) "regular" members wouldn't be here. And if we were, we'd be flamed for farting 200 miles away from them....

Seems like we have ourselves a problem. Rules say not to revive old threads, but also say to search for old threads before making new threads about something. Therefore you could never post.

And in this case, Hobo's right, thogh he WAS going around reviving old threads on purpose...

But still, the sentiment is right.

Is there a way to revive old threads by accident? And I still don't understand what's wrong with reviving old threads if they still have useful information or have some entertainment value.

That's okay, we can fix that.

I think what he meant was you did it on the purposeful intent on it getting "noticed" as you did it repeatedly. And actually some people do revive old threads accidentally, mostly noobs who dont pay attention to the dates.

Well technically, not all the threads you revived had useful content nor were they all entertaining. There was one or more in the R&M section that had no use, you just said like one word.

I don't really see why it's a bad thing this thread is closed because you can still watch the video, you just can't post so why complain. I'm not gonna choose sides (Hobo vs. The Mods) cause that would just be pointless, if people don't like how it's done then try to communicate and express yourself in a proper way and maybe work something out rationally.

Like c'mon guys (and girls), it's not a big deal, it's just a video (which can also be found on ebaums).

That's very astute of you. Of course you revive a thread to get it noticed. It's the same reason somebody bumps a help or classified thread or even starts a thread to begin with. If people didn't want SOMETHING to get noticed, they wouldn't post it so there would be no need for forums in the first place. After all, you posted this response and quoted my last post for the purpose of... wait for it... to get it noticed, at least by me. It worked, the system isn't broken.

Should we lock every thread as soon as it's started because somebody wants it noticed? Doesn't make sense to me either.

Two words for you. Thought police. Just because you don't find something useful or entertaining, does that mean that nobody might? Just because you don't see the value in something, does that mean somebody else can't. The Off Topic part of this forum is filled with threads pertaining to video games and right now one about football. Those threads have zero interest to me and are complete waste of space in my opinion. BUT, and this is a crucial but. You and others find them enjoyable, interesting and maybe even useful. Because they're of no value to me, should I call to have them locked or deleted. Absolutely not.

How can you have a free exchange of thoughts, ideas, knowledge just plain fun when censorship of the kind you find acceptable is in place. The answer is you can't

So althought this post http://www.car-forums.com/talk/showthread.php?t=1185 has no point to me, it valueable to other long term members? The only thing you said was "okay". Hobo, I'm not against you or against having fun as I am a fan of both and I respect you, but I also respect most of the Mods decisions (as you were still gone when this place almost went to hell... again, until 'Super Mods' were created). They have done more then you probably think they have lately.

Did your read my entire post before you responded? Did you notice the word entertaining? Another word I forgot but was working towards is participation. Notice you also participated in that thread after the revival, and based on the smiley it looked like you were enjoying yourself.

It's a real simple process and it doesn't require anybody to do your thinking for you. If you don't want to be part of a thread, new or old, do just like I do with the aforementioned video game threads... Don't join in. It's as easy as doing nothing.
