I think it's a good idea that the mods are closing down old threads, but it kinda sucks that they have to be brought back to the top of the list, pushing newer threads down...wouldn't it be better if you just archive the thread and add [ARCHIVE] to the title so that all these old threads don't float back? I just thought I would brind this up coz closing threads down and bumping them at the same time is defeating the purpose...

I agree. This has gone far enough ;)

BTW there is a suggestions forum completely at the bottom of CGTalks homepage, where this thread could fit.

I went to view my posts and now i got a lot more that I thought were new but just bumped notifying of the close. I think they can be closed and not commented on.

Yes, please don't bump closed threads. There is bizarre irony in seeing a one year old thread for the first time and then not being able to comment because it's closed.

I agree that is kind of bizarre that they get bumped to the top of the list when closed. But I've actually found some nuggets of gold when these old threads pop up. I would have never gone 20 pages deep to find them...

I don't get the whole thread locking thing actually. If someone posts something they think is new, you get ten people telling them to do a search. So you do a search, and some threads about the topic you wanted to discuss are there, but they are all locked.

It doesn't make much sense to me.

they're not popping to the top of the list here... do you have your forums set to "last post" sorting and within the "last month"?

i dont mind threads being closed, i dont understand why, use one thread instead of two i say, but i respect the decision from the powers that be.

Just wondering.

Hmmm... I wasn't aware that the threads were resurfacing from being closed... I'll get someone to look into that.

Lol...

the job section has been over run by the zombie threads.

I'm stockpiling food and shotgun shells. :scream:

...ahh theyve broken into the other forums too. Quick get the chainsaw!

yay. :) Thanks mibus.

Personally I like the thread archiving. Its a great idea, Ive had ancient Wips bumped and had people start criting my early work before. And it stops those (heated) art/porn threads from coming back.

Actually, I'm surprised they're not just ignored and allowed to fade into history...

I'd been noticing the dead/resurrected/killed threads lately, but hadn't realized how bad it could really get until I did a quick search today in General for "book cover". I think a full 95% of the hits returned were zombies. :argh:

Well, they succeeded in getting rid of zombie thread resurrections, but created a new breed. Like dead bodies resurfacing in the water after they've swollen up enough from fermentation.
Hmm, floaters....yuck!:argh:


Honestly, do people have no ****ing common sense at all? Posting images like this?
