I like seeing old topics come up and most revives benifit all, unless the whole reason is to revive flames. Then get out the hose.

I dont see the problem with revivals, usually something new has come up to be added. Reviving the old topic is better then starting a new one since people can see what was already said.

Here is how it works.

(note that ALL situations are FICTIONAL)

GOOD REVIVAL wrote:

Topic: Looking for Keen demo
Posted: September 29, 2000

Kazer0: Hey, I was looking for a demo of Commander Keen 1, anybody know where I can find it?

Posted: February 24, 2004
Wardrich: Hey, you can actually find that link on our site.



What's good about this?

--> Provides sufficiant information that tells the user where he can get the game from. They *could* be nicer and provide an actual URL to the site, but it's good enough.

Wardrich: I hate j00 d00d.... I hope you rot in a can. That is the worst game ever!!! When I is dun kill0rzing j00 im going to kill0rz that game


What's wrong here?

--> Poor grammar
--> Poor spelling
--> Flaming other users
--> Very biased
--> POINTLESS

Wardrich: I like cheese-whiz.


What's wrong here?

--> NOBODY likes Cheese-whiz
--> This post is irrevelant. Has NOTHING to do w/ da Keenster
--> IRREVELANT

So, as you can see, revivals are acceptable if it is REVELANT and/or USEFUL. If a user *cough*Wally*cough* bashes you for reviving, just ignore them. The only people you should have to ph33r are the MODs, and IMHO, we're pretty reasonable and logical with our actions (unlike some forums *cough*ddrfreak.com

Well Wardrich those samples you mentioned are lame no matter if the topic is new or old. I thaught we were talking about reviving old posts not stupid 3rd graders posting while eating glue.

We've already made a rule about it (as much as I hate making rules, I figure we need them to avoid topics like these... which get posted anyway) so please just read through it and follow it as you will. And, as I've said so many times, use your common sense. It's not that hard to figure out. Finally, don't be too worried about it-it's not like we'll hang you if you do. Just don't go WFH on us and revive 3 year old shit to say "lol, you are funny." Got it? (Humour me and just say yes)

Sorry if you were confused-he didn't lock it because of you (you were perfectly fine) but because Thunderdog was being an dick and flaming you and Da_Goat didn't want another flame war started. If you had a funny contibution feel free to start a topic about it. Wink
