Gravedig warning

Is there any way we can institute a gravedig warning (I’m presuming there isn’t one currently). There’s a lot of it going on at the moment.

Discourse gives a blue warning actually.

Oh well. I guess posters gotta post.

I’m a bit confused on this, what is the difference between legitimately resurrecting an old topic and illegitimately gravedigging?

Depends if the post is legitimately contributing new information or not.

My issue isn’t with illegitimate grave digging. It’s posters trying to reply to a post from several years ago written by a poster who isn’t even posting anymore. It’s just a bit bizarre and it happens quite a lot.

I’ve noticed a few weird ones, yes, where people seem to be trying to be helpful when obviously the information is useless. At the same time, I’ve noticed one or two people brought back into the fold!

I know what you mean, but I’ve see times where the gravedigging really brought the OP back to life! Although not many, I admit.
Besides the system warning, which is already in place, what would be your suggestion?

I’m thinking Tom Cruise? Inception? Through the window with a red ball? :laughing:

Please forgive me while I conduct a gravedig experiment.

Anyone ever had a wander around the Taipei cemetery? (Fudekeng). There’s a whole lot of dug up graves with bits of coffin still in them. Pretty weird. I’m guessing it’s either corpses back to China or 撿骨 but not bothering to reuse the grave.

Reddit “archives” a post and once archived you can’t add to it anymore.

Thank whatever you believe in or don’t believe in that this isn’t Reddit.

I like it when an old post gets brought back to life. Better than reading the same ten threads about coronavirus on the top of my feed.

I always get old thread in the suggested topics. Truthfully, i dont think most people pay attention to the date something was posted and carry on.as if.it was recent.

Here is the suggestions writing this post sometimes they are quite old.

Not sure why it would be a problem though. Like a magazine, nothing wrong with old ones.

How many years are long enough to be a gravedig?

10?

That is a good question. I don’t know. It might be more an art than a science. Are those people still active here, etc.?

I love the tag, great idea.

What is gravedig?
