Dead Thread Protocol ..?
« on: May 18, 2014, 05:42:25 am »
I was just wondering what's the go with dead/old threads because I know some forums don't like them being bumped after so many days ..

Reason being I really wanted to thank meganjane for sharing her Best Cooked Mayonnaise recipe which I made this morning and absolutely love!  Only the last comment on that post was in 2012 ..

For myself, I would like to see old threads staying and being bumped regularly as there are so many gems hidden in amongst the recipes (and many other posts as well) that it would be a shame to lose them.

However, I am not a moderator and it may be that things are, in fact, getting overloaded 'behind the scenes' and it may need to be trimmed down - I think that would be a job for MM and the three wonderful moderators to mull over and make a decision on, if necessary.

Delighted to hear that you liked the mayonnaise.

I love it when a thread is "bumped" as well. Lots of hidden gems and old memories resurface not to mention some old members .

I agree with both of you. We have discussed unlocking some threads as they are no longer needed at the for front but that is all.
Juicy Fruit you have sort of shown that old threads are still needed.
However we will see what CC and Judy think.

Please keep 'bumping' away as "oldies are always goodies"!

I like it when old threads are bumped too. My only problem is my "to try" list gets longer 😄

Oh yes I love old threads being bumped.  It is usually only because they are so good. Often I have missed them first time around.  I havent ever made the best cooked mayo for example!

I agree, keep bumping. There are some great recipes in here.

kmw, my "to try" pile is massive as well. I think I'll have to cook for 100 years and at least 5 recipes a day to get through mine!

You will have to come to the same old people's home as Judy, myself and others as we are taking our thermomix with us.  ;D ;D
