    We need to stop all of these bumping again. I remember Bgizzle put some feature, that warned the user they were bumping a thread older than 2 months (Or something like that). We must stop it. Threads from before October are being bumped.

    Maybe a rule should be put out then? You get an infraction for bumping a thread that hasn't been active for a month or 2, but we still keep the warning message?

    There are ways to stop this. Don't give the person a warning, give them an infraction and a 24 hour Ban or so?

    I think that's a little too harsh. Maybe a warning for the first couple times, but infractions if the user continues.

    Maybe something of a better notification, or a smaller wait period to get the threads up. I tried bumping my App Reveal Thread by saying it worked on 2.0, didn't work.

    I don't really see the problem with bumping older threads, tbh. First you tell people to search, and then if they do search and they post in a related thread you give them a warning for that as well? That makes no sense. If you are going to punish people for bumping older threads then you should not tell people to search, IMO.

    Maybe we should just close all threads that haven't been posted in for a couple months.

    All the new members that joined over the holidays are the ones that are bumping threads - we're not taking it too seriously because they're new. It'll go back to normal soon.

    People need to learn that its okay to start new threads!

    (unless you can fund the answer in another thread, which can be found by searching
