I've noticed that too. But consider that newer members will search for information on a topic, and find an older post that interests them. They might have more questions about the subject (which is new to them), and add a post.
A few weeks ago, I saw where somebody did that. I had an answer for their question, but I couldn't post it because a moderator had jumped in and locked the thread simply because it was old. Just because it is old to those of us who have been around for a while, doesn't necessarily mean it is old to everybody coming here to ask questions and learn.
Heck, I've searched for stuff that comes up in older posts simply because it is information I didn't need until now.

Right on, Tracy !!
I've seen in other forums where some self-important self-righteous obnoxious oldbie jumps all over some newbie trying to make the newbie feel like an idiot for reviving an old thread.
Very inconsiderate and counterproductive . . .

i was a newbie once,,,,,,,,
its just on that certain day,,,, [a couple of days ago ]
most of the threads in ,the new posts section ,,
were old threads that someone had added on,,,
and it confused me,,,
i would not pick on newbies,, they are the future...

LOL, I will start reading a thread without paying attention to the dates, and I get the feeling I've been there before...then I come to one of my posts and I realize what's going on!
I don't mind revisiting old threads from time to time, it's nice to refresh your memory about things, and since ABW has so many topics and threads, reviving one of them will probably be helpful to quite a few newer members...and to a few of us older members as well!

I love seeing old relevant threads pop up from time to time. Sometimes they get overlooked and deserve more attention that they originally got. Great to see threads get second chances. This is how the search engines need to be about some sites.

I couldn't agree more, Snib. I would like to see a forum that is nothing but re-hashed threads from six months ago or more. Kind of a "what are they doing now" or "Updates" section.

I will find my first ever posting. and re-post it...
that should be a good laugh,,,, actually!!!!
we should all do it one day,,, we will start a thread ,
TITLE : my first ever post....
everyone must look back, find the first post they ever done, cut and past,, and post it in that thread... I bet we would have a good laugh at that
