    So if you could bring any old SS/FG thread back from the dead....

    .... which would it be?

    I haven't been on the forum for a few days and I come back to this?!

    7+ year old threads just popping up like they never ended??

    Maybe we should just roll 'em all together into one huge jackass thread of their own!

    Who cares how old the thread is, if productive conversation is continuing.

    You can't have it both ways - complaining when people don't search and also complaining when people bump ancient threads.

    Didn't say I was complaining. There will always be a thread resurrected every once and again. Just not every third thread!!

    search is for finding information without having to make a new thread - it doesn't have anything to do with bumping 8 year old threads

    And asking a question/posting in an old thread, regardless of age, keeps the information all in one place. People with similar questions in the future will be able to find their answer in that thread without starting another as well. So thread necromancy is often the best course of action. This is something that happens on every forum on the internet.

    Except that is never what happens. What happens is that there is some old thread where someone has a problem and then the forum provides an answer and then a necromancer comes along and resurrects the thread without reading the thread and provides the same answer. They aren't adding any information or helping anybody. There is definitely a place for resurrecting threads but most of the time it happens because newbies don't realize they are in an old thread.

    "Ask Carleton" was a funny thread because people would always ask @carleton stupid stuff like "How much can you bench" or "Which would be a better thing to buy: a Chris King headset or a 3T stem?" or "Do you do the Carleton Dance?" or "There is a girl in my chemistry class I've been trying to get to know, so how can I tell if she likes me?". At the end basically all the questions were pissing him off. At least he would show off his new custom track bikes and that was cool. He doesn't show up here anymore except to kick people out of the track forum.

    There was a beard thread somewhere that was cool but it was a derailment of some other thread so it is impossible to look it up.

    I need to get some new pictures and resurrect the "FTP Love" thread.

    i'd say 50% of members from that time period haven't posted here since then because of the fallout...

    Yeah, but you'd have to resurrect Adriano as well.

    That thread was so epic. I laughed for days.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC
