    How old is too old when it comes to necro'ing a thread? Two weeks? A month? Three months? I have always been curious and would like to know.

    I suspect the answer relies more on just age. Probably the topic involved has a lot to do with it as well.

    Also depends on how busy the forum is, of sorts. If you dig something on page 10 of UHall that's necromancy (intent). If you reply to something that's on page 1 of a slow forum, it's sort of natural you could have missed the date and the thread is quite old.

    Page ten on UHall is necromancy? PAGE TEN ON UHALL COULD BE HARDLY LAST WEEK!

    And then if you open a new thread that's on a topic that was just covered last week, you get people on your ass to SEARCH NOOB!
