<p>I noticed that a mod just locked a thread quoting "dont bump old threads."  Have I been wrong for the last 8 years in assuming that History/Lore forums actually welcomed bumping of old threads when new questions/info arise?  I know it is frowned upon in other forums for obvious reasons but history is always relevant so I am not quite sure why it matters.</p><p>Considering these forums are going to all be locked come tommorow anyway its a moot point, however it would be nice to have an <span style="color: #ff0000;">OFFICIAL</span> reply on this going forward into the new forums.</p>

<p>Hello pookie, This message is to inform you that bumping old threads violates forum guidelines. When posting, make sure your actions abide by SOE policy. Thank you, 08</p><p>This what they PM to me which I find RUDE I was asking a question about a old topic since I've been gone from the game for a while, instead of starting a new one I posted in old one so I wouldnt hear the same info that was posted in the past but that is wrong as I was told. I PM 2  Devs and nothing it seams since VHalen left lore taken a crapper.I left game when he did came back for a bit left again due to poor answering of question by DEVs, and im back again within 1 week Devs allready put a bad taste in my mouth. They need to find VHalen and pay him aything he wants to come back in my opinion.</p>

<p>It's always been my understanding that the prohibition on necro-posting has never been applied to the History and Lore forum.  This is to prevent having two dozen threads on the same subject</p>

<p>I know I got a good laugh out of that mod locking the thread. I guess several threads covering the same subject is better than necroing. lol</p>

<p>Yeah I also saw that and thought it was very, very weird.</p><p>Plz allow necro-posting in this forum, given the nature of 'History and Lore' section.</p>

<p>+1 for being able to necro threads in this section.</p><p>It's the equivalent of dusting off an old tome or searching the archives for a newspaper. What's the harm?</p>
