'cause it really was a stupid one and I wish I could take it all back!

The only stupid question is the one never asked. What may seem simple to you could a real brain-teaser for others. :)

I can't agree with you more.

I just want to say perhaps larger typefont on the date of each post, perhaps in bold might help with...

ok, I have not been posting here much and so maybe I'm a little behind the times.  But what is so terrible about necro-posting?  I've enjoyed all of these necro threads that have sprung up recently....  There are plenty of asked and answered questions out there that could possibly benefit someone who hasn't seen it before. It's not like this forum is so terribly busy with new and exciting topics.

Necroposting is frowned upon among the forum community because it is bad forum etiquette to reply to a discussion that has already ended.

Especially if the discussion ended YEARS ago like so many recently necroed threads have been.

The problem is that although some questions are timeless, so an answer at any time may benefit people who read it years later, many necro-answers really only address the problem that the OP may have asked about.  Responding to a post like that is sort of silly, because you can assume reasonably that the OP has either solved the problem ages ago or left SL.  It's not always obvious which of those cases describe a specific ancient thread, but that's one reason why forum regulars scoff at necropositing. 

The other reason is that it's incredibly easy to get sucked into being a necroposter.  All you have to do is forget to look at the original date on the thread.  Then you are an instant doofus, worthy of a communal horse laugh.

The biggest problem is rehashing old info.  What was a common solution last year could be a problem of its own now.  Second Life is in a state of constant change.  Sims come and go.  Procedures get refined.  Laws get reinterpreted.  In most cases no info is better than bad info.  There are things that were once common place and even considered best practice that will get you banned now.  It it best to leave those old discussions in the past and re-ask the questions so that only contemporary advice is shown.

The older the post/OP the more likely any solutions are out dated and no longer useful. Not saying that is always the case. Sometimes it's better to ask for information that may be all over the forum because you will get up to date answers. For the most part. There are those "timeless" issues where the solution never really changes but those are getting farther and fewer between.

Just my 2 cents.
