People pointlessly complain about reanimating topics years dead. Necroposting..
People pointlessly complain about making new topics on material previously covered..
Your reasons are excellent - and common. New crowd, new opinions. New perspectives.. All just as valid as a 10-year old thread. And just as fun. Perhaps more.
I found an old post I made. Woot!
"It's a tough call, Sometimes I like Battlezone and other times I like Robot Tank."
And you know what? That is still very true today. Right this instant it's a 55/45 mix in favor of Battlezone.
Personally, I hate resurrected threads. Whenever I see a thread with like 10+, 20+ pages of replies, I just skip it altogether because I don't feel like reading through all that, so if it's only a page or two of new content, I'll never see it.
I'd rather see a new topic started if a thread is a year old or more. Chances are there's a bunch of new people on the board who haven't discussed it before.
it always feels like I'm in the minority of this on any board though. Everyone else seems to have the "Thou shalt not discuss any topic outside the thread we started 7 years ago on it"
