Opinions on necro-posting? Why is is percieved as a taboo?

If I want to post in a topic that's a month old, that's really interesting, isn't that okay?

And I know, that time I necro'd a post about 2.3.2 was stupid...that was my first day, and I was messing around :P

I'm not trying to get my post count up...The 15.33 posts probably comes from the Corrupt-a-wish board...

Well, I only post where I want too, I dont need nor want to hunt for the higher post count, it is U S E L E S S ! :P
And I'm like Bunny now, the corruption topic became boring, need to diversify!Find another game!

Anyway,for your question it depend.

Depending of the topic, and the reason.
I mean, necro posting for only saying "ROFLOL UP DERAIL" or showing a ugly pumpkin pic (do I need to point out? ;)), its stupid.

But if the subject really matter to you, if you want to talk about it, or if its a topic that can be reused at any time (like, probably, most of the topic in the general and wow) well, you can put them up at any time!

Like, when you upped the topic about the patch 2.3 which was out A YEAR AGO to say TO LOCK IT, it was stupid, but when you upped the GM topic to show a (not fake?) GM chat log, then it wasn't stupid, get it? :P

I mean, Look here, we had a lot of topic about movies and musics and so on, but now we only have, the corrupting thread^^.

Ok,Ok,point taken :P

Yeah, like I said, I realize that those posts were unnecessary. That was my first day, and I wasn't really accustomed to how the forum works over here.

I'll try to be more, uh, appropriate about necro-posting.

And yeah, that GM was real. She was really cool too :P (Live server I swear :) )

Resurrect threads if the thing you want to post about is still topical and makes sense in the context of the original thread. Don't resurrect 6 month or older threads to post your quaint opinion that no one gives a shit about.

In Krom's ask thread, I believe he once said something along the lines of dark red is for joking posts, black is for srs bsns.

Like me then, red is for joking, trolling, being bored, sleeping, eating a sandwich etc... and black is for serious posts. :twisted:
