How long (number of days, months) does an old post can have a warning like this and can be considered an old thread? I believe 120days right at least the duration if none posted on that thread? Cause thats what it state when there is a warning if you will reply on that topic.


I assume there is an exemption of this through stickied thread on every sections. Maybe I was wrong but let me give you an example which I just discovered recently.

Other sections for this forum?

This post was posted February 2016. The last active post on this was last January 14, 2020. So if we check the months it was inactive it almost reach 5months right? I wonder why the warning message  has not popping up when it almost over the 120days period from the last message posted Here:

Does it support the idea stickied thread has exemption to this? Im not sure though but I would like an explanation why is it like that. Everyone can try on other local section if they have the same active stickied thread to verify.


Sorry for my noob question, just wanted to know why is it like that.

I just tried it in my local Croatian section for two sticky threads that have not had any new posts for a few months and you are right, the 120 days notification does does not show. Same thing in the German local. I can only make the same conclusion as you. Since the thread is a sticky, its content is important enough not to be considered as old, despite how much time has passed.

EDIT: BTW, it is not something exclusive to the local forum. This Meta sticky also doesn't show the notification.

I share your sentiment, but, the thread literally shows up at the top of the first page so I would assume the posting gap would not factor in. The 120 day warning would be for posts which has been discussed extensively and may no longer be relevant at the time.
It would also be confusing for new members to get such a warning message when replying to the first post in a board.

The message is there to avoid people bumping dead threads back to the front page. Stickied threads are always in the top of the front page, so what would be the issue of posting there? That's why no message shows up.

It seems like it is like that, I also check the thread on the Indonesian board and there is no warning. I think because sticky threads have content that generally needs to be followed by forum members whether forum rules (parent rules, parent board rules, child board rules) or that contain information relevant to the forum but all members need to follow. So, even though there was no update or no comment on that thread for long a long time but no warning, I think it is very reasonable.

After all, warnings on old threads are just to reminders, perhaps to avoid bumping unnecessary threads. However, that does not mean there is a warning, it should not be commented on. If something is relevant and doesn't need to create a new thread, I think it would be better to post to that thread to avoid having too many similar threads


Edit: Well I think this is the real reason why warning not showing up
Stickied threads are always in the top of the front page

I get it that stickied threads are important ones. I just get the idea when there was a post on our local board about the certain topic which covered by the stickied thread but the thread was inactive for few months, so he think it shouldn't be bump thats why he create a new thread but users suggest to post instead on the right thread which happened to be on stickied thread.

But as expected I am right, exemption to sticky thread have it purpose to stay there as you said.



Which lead me again to another curiosity. How about those locked stickied threads that needs a revision? How would that thread be updated if example the author has not active anymore. This is possible if ever someone created a much better version for example rules.

A locked thread can be unlocked by an admin. Once unlocked you can copy/paste the code or make the edits that are needed.
If the original author is no longer around, the copied code of the OP can be used to create a new thread and delete the old thread. I guess that is one option. I don't know if admins have an option to change the original OP of a thread. Can't remember ever reading something about it.

In the Croatian section, one of the sticky threads was created by Lauda in the past. Now the OP is marlboroza. I have no idea how that was done. Maybe marlboroza can tell us whether he created a completely new thread, or was somehow made OP on Lauda's old thread.

There are some who arent active OP of some stickied threads on few boards. So that means we need approval or yet at least inform the moderator if somehow we find the stickied thread needs revision and we have our own suggestion?

In the Croatian section, one of the sticky threads was created by Lauda in the past. Now the OP is marlboroza. I have no idea how that was done.
This is a prime example of my concern. If that actually happened then this is possible. Maybe those you mentioned can enlighten us of this occurrence.

Admins can change the original poster of a topic.
Wall Observer has been originally created by adamstgBit. But now the OP is infofront.

Yeah, that would probably work. Best thing to do would be to contact one of the admins in private and send him your suggestions.

This is a prime example of my concern. If that actually happened then this is possible. Maybe those you mentioned can enlighten us of this occurrence.
Maybe they or an admin can chip in with more info. But hosseinimr93 has already suggested that the OP can be changed.

Admins can change the original poster of a topic.
There you have it. That is great to know. Thanks
