Old thread warning

Quote:
This Thread is more than 592 days old. It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose.
If you feel it is absolutely necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so.
If a search for info brings up a old thread is it better to contribute/add to the thread(mayb pose a additional question as well)..Or is it better to just start a new thread pertaining to the matter involved ?

Generally it is better to start a new thread.

... with a link to the older thread if info in it is pertinent to the new thread.

When an old thread is resurrected with a post way down the page or on a different page altogether, the new post is often overlooked and members start answering questions or posts that are years (sometimes decades) old. Often the member who started the thread isn't even participating on the forum any longer.
