Is this an oficial rule on the board?  If not, Bees can do what they please.  (lol, I made myself giggle with that rhyme)

I can’t wait until this thread is 2 years old so I can comment on it.

I usually look at the timing of the most recent comment when I reply. I will start looking at the original post as well.

I think we have all done it at one time or another. It’s ironic that this thread is at the top of the Board over threads with real content.

Yeah, I almost started reading an “emotional” one where her SO had impregnated another woman TWO years ago. I’m sure it’s all worked out by now!

coffeedrinker:  agree.

also who cares?

i have done this myself and apologised when I realised. Not a new bee. It’s easy to miss when on your phone. 

Hope someone comments on this in 3 years’ time 🙂

Nah, I don’t think I will. I enjoy reading old threads and if I feel like commenting then I will. kthxbai.

We’ve all made this mistake. Generally, most people go “Whoops!” and move on instead of posting passive-aggressive 🙂 smiley-face 🙂 Guardians of the Bee posts about it. It’s really no biggie, right?

rachel85:  Sometimes they do!  I read one a few days ago that was from 2 years ago.  For whatever reason, it had been bumped.  The OP received an email and came back two years later just to update!  And it was a happy update at that.

I’m guilty of this occassionally, but unless the thread is seeking advice or otherwise time sensitive, I really don’t see the harm in bumping an old thread. Especially if it’s relevent to something I’m looking for or an interesting topic. I mean because then what’s the cutoff? A month? Two? Three? Six? When do you deem it “too long” to comment on a topic? It’s all kind of relative. I see something from two or three years ago and I’m like “eh…why” but then I see a October 2014 thread started well over a year ago…all of those ladies are just now getting married, so obviously they’re getting bumped. 

I will admit one of the most frustrating things that ever happened to me on this site was reading some crazy occurrence in a Bees life (can’t exactly remember all the details) and read through what felt like a hundred pages of responses, just to get to the end and the last comment be, “Update please?” and I backed up and realized the thread was over two years old, there were no further updates, and I knew I would go to my grave never knowing what the hell happened <—- that I will agree is frustrating. 

The topic ‘Ahem… (especially newer Bees) STOP COMMENTING ON OLD THREADS :)’ is closed to new replies.
