I agree keep "bumping" please.  I love it when an old thread suddenly pops up again and you realise you have missed it before.  We have some wonderful recipes on here.

I agree also with the "bumping" old threads, that way I can catch up on a lot of threads that were happening before I joined the forum  ;D

This is one forum with no dead threads, only ones that are having a nap waiting for that wakeup call . . . . . ;) :D

I can remember when that message first came up for me, not knowing much about forums at that time, I just sat here wondering whether to post there or not.  I decided why not, I can only get told off if I've done the wrong thing or my posting removed :D

When a dead thread is revived it shows exactly as GF said. I've been known to spend ages looking for something old on the forum, but now I am learning to do Judy's trick of googling it and most times it comes up for me. 

I'd love a 'save' box attached to the forum where I could save little hints etc. I put recipes into Snap Recipes and often bookmark hints but both of those are growing enormously.  ;D ;D

I love it when threads are bumped and not only cooking ones. I remembered a discussion on vacuum cleaners and referred to it when I was purchasing mine. I bumped it to see if those that posted were still happy with their choices.
It does get me wondering about members that haven't posted in a while like Decadent Dot, Katya etc. I hope they doing well and that it's only that life is busy, keeping them away from the forum.

Actually I looked up when they were last active - Dot in February and Katya yesterday so that's good. Hope this doesn't seem stalkerish? Just hope all is well.

I was thinking about decadent dot the other day and wondering how she was getting on.

No not starkerish but just concerned.

I agree that we miss some of our 'old regulars', especially those we know have health problems.  Check in when you can guys, we often think of you.

I must admit to Decadent dot being in my thoughts in the last few months.

I often think of Decadent Dot, Katya and Andie(senji) - although she pops on now and then, and there was also a gay couple, I think in Germany, the Australian partner was hilarious with his stories, but haven't heard from him in such a long time either ... and there must be many others whose names have been lost between the cracks in my grey matter but who used to post regularly.
