So would posting something to a thread I made back in October of last year count as necroposting?
I'll give you few scenarios where a "necrobump" from my POV is fine vs not ok.

+The Bump adds to the original discussion
+There currently is no mirror thread talking about the same topic at present
Example: The What Are You Listening To? (Topic, will always get necrobumped as it is the only one of it's kind on the forum)
+It's likely a fanfiction or roleplay where replies are known for being spread out over weeks/months/years.

A few scenarios to consider against bumping an old topic

-Its obviously a bot bumping a thread.
-You're hyperlinking to an ad or advertising on an old thread.
-A mirror or duplicate thread of the OP that virtually replaced your topic is currently being discussed.


That's about as objective as a reply I can offer friend, just to name a few!

Alright, guess I'll bring it back then, still a lot of DCOMS to discuss.

This is more of a question for administration. In the foreseeable future could we potentially see a re-implementation of username color pallets reflecting breaking a certain post-threshold?

This crossed my mind seeing AegisXIII recently crack 1k posts for the first time and no color pallet swap occurred.

(my memory is terrible but it looked something like this)
0-999 normal
1000 - 2999 bronze
3000 - 5999 silver
6000 - 9999 gold
10000 - ???? platinum

Staff colors were varied.
😭 mfw I realised I hit 1000 and still had no drip
