I noticed that too and was wondering if it was another “New Wedding Bee” glitch.

I think WeddingBee needs to update their post structure because sites like Babycenter make it nearly impossible to do this to the old threads (except like when someone searches for it of course)… but on weddingbee it seems like all the ones they “suggest” to me on the bottom of a post, are way old. I’ve accidently commented on a really old post because of that, when really those ones should be “recently commented” or at least “related” posts.

I don’t see the harm in it. Although the advice might not help the OP, it might help someone else, because at least one person found it relevant to comment on. This site has a wealth of information, so bumping an old thread might give others a chance to find something they never would have thought of. If Wedding Bee didn’t want people commenting on old threads they probably would have “related posts” at the bottom of each thread on here. 

No one is required to read anything on here,  if something doesn’t interest you just skip the thread and find something you like better.

Haha it makes me laugh when a post like “help new choose my dress!” is bumped and it’s three years old. I just don’t understand if people don’t see the date?

I can’t believe that this is getting some folks all bothered in the knickers.  

Like a few others, if it’s something you post on that is a couple of years old and it happens to help someone now . . . awesomesauce!

If it makes you a cranky mccrankerson that you see someone respond to a two year old wedding invite help, there are other things that are much more important to worry about in this world.

Just saying.

MrsBeck:  I can only speak for myself, but I occasionally check WB on my phone and the font is teensy-weensy. It’s easy to not notice when it was posted!

I’m sorry if it’s that annoying, but I think unless it’s an advice thread, it’s totally fine. At the bottom of each thread is a related topics section, and sometimes we don’t stop to think that maybe the related topics aren’t brand new. I’m sorry if this offends you, but if you aren’t a mod, then this post comes across as very bossy when it’s not your place. Also, how old is old? Two months, or two years? Unless you come up with some sort of chart on what’s new and what’s not, I don’t see how we can follow your advice.

I don’t know if this has been mentioned, but could it still be an issue with related threads at the bottom? Suggesting a thread that has been long buried?
