Bradwall hasn't posted on this forum in four years.

What is WRONG with you?

I don't feel like I overstepped my bounds in asking about DRODtris, but maybe I did. Either way, I'm going to stop posting on the forum for a while until I have a chance to better assess what I've done wrong in my time here, even if it's a slight error. If it turns out to be something larger and internal that I can't readily fix, I can limit my posts to hold submissions.
it's not even that you're making particularly terrible posts
just, like, I don't know, stop posting in threads that haven't had posts in them for three or more years
or at least try to limit it to maybe one a...week? I don't even know here

Anyway, I don't think I answered your question, so here goes. There are plenty of things wrong with me, and that question is something I'm not very comfortable with. I don't really know where to start.
have any of you ever like, found a log just sitting there, in a forest, or even just 'a piece of driftwood in someone's yard that never moves', and kicked it over because you thought 'huh, what's under here' and then suddenly you realize you've caused something vaguely horrifying and you can't then /undo/ the thing?

because this is exactly what i think just happened here.

edit: okay I am /dead certain/ that there are some shenanigans going on here because it looks like Trickster isn't even resurrecting all these threads

Do we just have some giant influx of people who don't sort by date? Is that what's going on here?

Are there really people who just read forums and don't sort by date?

Personally, I think Banjooie is being rather antagonistic and unclear. Because Trickster is bumping threads with meaningful content and interest in the topic, she is not doing anything wrong and probably should not have her mental capacity questioned. Her statement of "someone else might be able to help" is a good argument for bumping the thread instead of making a new thread for it or simply giving up. She might even renew interest in the project whether or not Bradwall is there.

My point is that Trickster has fairly good reasons for asking these questions. Bumping threads is not much different from creating a new thread, but since the questions pertain to their respective threads, bumps are better than new threads.

It's just Banjooie. I wouldn't take him/her so seriously if I were you.

Yup yup. No problem here. I'd much rather see an old thread bumped so I can look back on the plethora of material, than a new thread started that simply repeats everything everyone's half-forgotten. Good job on finding the old threads!

I think this question is better directed at you. I've never seen you be so bothered by something that isn't an issue.

Indeed. The official stance is that bumping old topics is bad if it's just to say "lol me too" or to answer a question that someone asked 7 years ago that they PROBABLY aren't sitting there waiting for an answer to any more. Bumps to discuss older topics are fine.

I like that our regular users can police some things, like telling someone "Hey, you should post this hold over there in Architecture rather than General," but please don't police things that for some reason bug you but aren't against the rules.
