Question on necroing threads.

Does it count as necroing a thread if I vote on an old poll, but not post in it? I've been wondering this since the beginning of March lol.

Voting on a poll doesn't bump the thread, so no.

Question for you though. If the thread is dead then why vote without posting? No one is going to see it...

I don't think anyone has any hard and fast rules on what does and doesn't count as necroing (although most people know it when they see it). But since voting in a poll doesn't actually bump the thread, I don't think it would count (though the person probably already has the info they need, so you are really just voting for your own gratification).

edit: Damn ninja dak...

Well, there is this:

Quote:
Old threads. If you’ve used the search function and found an old thread, kudos first of all. Now, if you have some groundbreaking new info then feel free to post it. If however, youre just going to say ‘works for me’ or ‘what he said’ etc, don’t bother. Think- am I adding value to the thread? Basically, if a thread is over a month old, stay away from it.

I was more getting at the fact that everyone has a different idea of when a post in a discarded thread, regardless of whether it has new info, is necroing it.

I'd say any not useful post more than 3 months later and any post more than a year later (yes, we all know that a bunch of games are now over 2000g, but responding to a post from 2008 about it is still necroing) would be necroing. But that's just me.

Now, if there's a thread that hasn't been posted in six months and someone else makes a thread of the exact same nature and topic (polls especially) should we still direct them to the older thread?
