New and old posts
It's a good idea to check the date that an old thread was started or was most recently added to. As a general rule, anything over a couple of months old can be considered 'dead' and is best being left in its grave. Old threads are left as a reference point - if you are reading them and find something interesting you would like to discuss, you could start a new thread about it.
Three reasons for this:
1. if the thread is asking for advice, any help will be useless after a certain length of time because the problem will have been dealt with.
2. older posters get frustrated because they saw the thread the first time round, and have to read through it again to check they haven't replied before and that they aren't repeating another poster's comment.
3. newer posters get confused by all the old and ex posters who originally replied to the thread.
