Irrelevant. I don't get you guys and your "don't open old threads" attitude. LOL


Sorry, after running BBSes and Forums for so many years some of the damned conspiracy theories I used to read are still coming out my ears, I still go back to being ORGANIZED.

If you open a thread in 2002 and no one posts to it, what GOOD does it do your server to open another, NEW thread in 2009 and post the same thing to it?

Nothing.

In fact, it would do you all some good to combine some threads into a good flow. I gave a good example awhile back. Looked up something on San Diego Sailing Academy. DIDN'T FIND anything. Not sure why the search didn't work, but it didn't. After doing a new thread with a question, I noted three old threads popped up.

The information in each one is EXACTLY the sort of thing I was seeking, didn't find it.

However, if all the threads are combined, there's a FLOW to them - and the data is in one place now.

But, I guess that's me.

I don't like to see the same crap rehashed in twenty threads myself. I prefer to see it all in the same thread.
