    Hello members of the forums, as new members come, this seems to become a larger problem, don't think I'm saying that new members aren't welcome here, I just want them to know of this term we call

    'Necroposting'

    Urban Dictionary Definition:
    On a message board, posting something irrelevent on a really old topic to bring it to the top of the list topics. name comes from the fact that you are bringing it back from the dead, thus Necro.

    This meaning is slightly altered on the Hive Forums, we don't want old threads revived, unless they really must be, so please if the last post on a thread is over a month old, refrain from posting there

    How 'Non-new' members can help:
    If you see any necro, don't just say 'Don't necropost' explain what necroing is, or direct them to this thread, so that Necro can be stopped.

    Tips:

    The date of posts can be located under whatever the member has posted, along with the members username, and if that date is over a month, then please do not post there.

    If you see a post that's last post was a question, and that post is over a month old, don't go saying

    Because even though you are on topic, and you have answered the question, you've answered it way too late to count to anything.

    If you see necroposting, direct the member to this thread! That way, you don't have to come up with a definition, you can just say:

    Thank you, ps3gamerepic
