I think it is good to dredge up old threads as you get to read knowledge or experience which might otherwise never be seen again.

Also, reid5009 (if he still reads this site) might tell us how much progress he's made with his plans, more experience to learn from.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I'd respond to this with the following words, considering my particular line of work for the last many, many years.

Yes. Often so far.

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.

Hey Rick...I am FOR re-opening old threads if you have something relevant to add. In THIS case they were ANSWERING and giving advice to a guy who last posted 5 years ago! Thought they might like to know that!!

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

I know this. I also know that common sense dictates this and common sense isn't common.

My point here and in other places is still the same, and that is if I do a search and find a thread related to the question I want to ask, and no one has answered it - it doesn't matter how old the thread is.

In that case *I* WILL reopen the thread and ask the question.

As an administrator myself, this does a couple of things for me.

1) It keeps the THREAD count DOWN (and I don't care if you THINK it's cool to have a lot of threads or not, it isn't consistent with being organized on a forum).

2) It allows the thread to be revisited by the original posters, as well as new people who've not yet seen it, AND gives folks a second chance to answer the questions.

The other day after I posted my remarks here several... people... went beyond the pale and tried to prove that opening older threads was "stupid". All they did was prove the "common sense isn't common" theory.

I guess since most people don't bother to SEARCH the site before posting, everything I'm saying is moot anyway.

Oh well.

I'll still bring up the point there are three or four threads on "San Diego Sailing Academy" scattered "Over time" on the site here.

When I DID look for that information initially the threads DID NOT show up.

AFTER I started a new thread, they showed up in the search functions suddenly. (Probably a bug in the software, as I've seen similar on my site before).

Thus - I'd request again those threads be combined into one thread BECAUSE they all contain relevant information, but you have to search them all.

This software allows the combination of several threads, and the messages will be placed in chronological order so it isn't a big deal for a moderator to do it. Just takes a few minutes of their time and it would go a long way to preventing people from dredging up ancient threads that never received an answer 12 years ago I think.

Another good catch, Cam.

So it's been 5 years. Did Reid make the move and live aboard? Guess we'll never know.
