Some of you may be wondering, "But Ryu, people necro the Wish thread and Song thread all the time why is that allowed?"
Well you see, those are dedicated chat threads, and reviving them with posts that are relevant to the theme is perfectly fine.
Of course, I am sure some of you are instead thinking, "But Ryu, people necro suggestion threads sometimes, and they are not warned or banned for it, while I was?”
Because their post was useful, or relevant to a situation, ex. a suggestion limiting the amount of posts per day for users that had not verified there IGN at http://minerealm.com/verify was necro'd after a series of annoying spammers on the forums. This was a valid necro as it was brought back for a specific, useful reason, and offered a bit of input.
It is NOT a valid or tolerable necro if the thread is revived with an off topic comment, or if the idea has already been ACCEPTED/APPROVED.
Now that I have explained how to necro a thread the right way, I will explain the consequences of doing it wrong.
If you necro a thread that is at least 2 weeks old, and the comment is useless, 1 day forum ban. Further necro's on the same or different topics will result in increasingly longer bans, ex. 1 day, 2 days, 3 days, and so on.
If the necro is on a thread that is more than 2 months old, and the comment is useless, I will forum ban you for a week. Further infractions, at the discretion of the Staff, may result in longer bans.
Temporary forum bans may be granted more liberally if the offending post is particularly stupid, and the lengths of bans are subject to change, at the discretion of the Staff.
I would like to point out that this list is negotiable, on Staff's terms only. Trolling, raging, and general idiocy will all be treated with the scorn they deserve, and warnings/bans will be gifted like it is Christmas. Arguing about the rules is as likely to end in a ban as breaking them.
If you have any questions, post them in this thread.
