    This thread was a total waste of time.

    As promised, thread resurrection one year later. Reminder set for next year.

    A man who keeps his promises!

    FWIW, as a relative newcomer have thoroughly enjoyed some zombie threads. Some, well, not so much.

    See you next year.

    I could recommend a good horse...good saddles for those are often made locally.

    The answer is 14 years, because the whitewalls were dingy and treads geting old. Still good for spares however.

    The main way threads get ressurrected on other sites I'm on is usually for spamming.

    You are lucky.

    Granted, waking up old ones is sometimes a way of screwing around, but if people respond to an old thread, it indicates that the issue hasn't really changed (i.e. the thread is still relevant) or possibly that there is more to add to it.

    For example, in the first 6 hours after it was resurrected, the tire replacing thread at When do you replace your tires?? generated more more than triple the number of serious replies than the original thread did. Obviously, the issue is interesting to a number of members.

    In any case, what's the harm in waking these things up? It's not like it happens very often, causes problems, or that all the new threads are so relevant anyway. Perhaps the instructions for the site should indicate that people should ignore threads they find uninteresting.

    Back up for another year...then back to sleep again. Almost like a cicada, only at 1 year intervals rather than 17

    It's the annual newbies to the internet and forums time of year. New College kids, out on the net with a lot of free time, exploring, among others.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    I keep suggesting that zombie threads turn a deeper shade of green the older they get, but nobody listens to me.
