    Default Dammit, can you make an anti-necro rule?

    I'm getting tired of seeing Misc Series threads get necroed. It seems that every newbie nowadays takes it upon himself to find an ancient recommendation thread and bump it. It's annoying, and pointless. Can you guys implement some sort of rule, whereby those who necro old threads get shot, or something like that?

    Thanks.

    The problem is that Misc. Series is kind of... missing its mod(s). Jyuu doesn't have time and Martyr never seems to be around anymore.

    Or do you mean a no-necro rule, no questions asked?

    I like the sound of a "no questions asked" version.

    Misc Series is seriously without a mod? Damn.

    I'd, you know, ask to be made mod of that section, but I seem to recall narrowly escaping a ban the last time I asked for modship...though I suspect the danger is lessened with Martyr's apparent absence.

    Oh well.

    Technically, it has Martyr - but...

    The problem is that people don't search before creating new threads, which means that we have multiple threads of practically everything. Seeing as how a necro is usually of some stupid poll or whatnot, or a request because the idiot didn't read the rules...

    Yeah...

    Better a new thread than a necro.

    It depends on the topic and the reasonings.

    Bad topic = bad.
    Asking for manga request (new topic) = bad.
    Necroing for request = bad
    Necroing to report news (ie: new chapter) = good.

    I don't count the final item as a necro.

    I think we need a definition of "necro" then.

    since i tend to BASH idiots who make repeat threads id rather have them necro a topic... no need for forty threads asking for manga similar to naruto. ESPECIALLY when theres a MISC SEREIS LIST that no one seems to look in anymore.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Agreed, I'd much rather have them necro than make new threads. If they necro, let them.
    Tho' you are a respected member, your not the only member of this forum.

    If recommendation threads are a big problem, that can be solved.
