bumping year or years old thread is fine if its relevant

for example the year old penfield thread that just got bumped

If there is less cluster created by noobs. bumping old threads is no problem. Just look at sz.

The majority of people are too lazy and want to be handed an answer on a silver platter.

This. The search function has served me well. It's not the perfect search tool, but it does its job adequately. It just takes some patience at times, but things don't always come when you snap your fingers in life.

Jet - ages ago you said you'd post pics of your leather weekenders on the Manbag thread. I have searched and searched and I haven't seen them yet...

Everyone already knows no one's going to use that. Senior members won't touch it and noobs won't read shit and will just make a new thread, just like they do now. Intelligence doesn't show itself until about the 100th post, in general

This is most likely because the influx of noobs is constant and never-ending and I'm sure that most people just get to the point where they think "Why bother?" I guess starting the subforum would take the clutter out of SW&D, but if you wanted this as a solution to actually get your questions answered, I don't think that'll ever happen.
Most questions actually get answered unless they're stupidly specific, stupid, or subjective. Why is it people who rag on the stickies being useless never are the ones in there helping answer?

Order your soup! Then move to the left!

post #159 of 164
Oh hey there
post #160 of 164
Why isn't this stickied hard
post #161 of 164
because then it'd be hard and sticky
post #162 of 164
you mean a stick?

I've probably mentioned this before, but I don't feel like searching for it, so maybe I'll just start a new thread about it. I think part of the problem is that people who are just joining the forum - particularly those who have never been part of an online forum before - have no idea that starting a new thread is inappropriate and detrimental to the forum. I don't recall reading/seeing/signing off on anything that said I wouldn't or shouldn't create new threads willy-nilly, and I wouldn't assume that everyone would immediately grasp the logic behind forum etiquette without anyone having it explained to them. It's like the library analogy - if you'd never been in a library before, and you didn't know how a library works, why wouldn't you walk into the middle of it and start shouting your question?

Because no one else is shouting?
