How old is too old?

If someone is browsing through old threads, and they come across one they feel is interesting and they woudl like to re-open the discussion, is this possible?

I think it's ok if the issue wasn't resolved, especially if it isn't locked. And if it's the past few months. I mean if it has been years, probably no point,lol.

You can contact the mods through the ''Alert us'' button but you have got to have a good reason for it to be re-opened. Generally the ''Off topic'' discussions can be resurrected.

Threads automatically closes after 2 months (last reply).

Threads close after 60 days of inactivity. After that happens it can only be opened by an update from the OP or a bump from moderation.

We usually leave abandoned threads closed unless they are on a general topic (such as the Gun Control thread I reopened the other day.)

General topic threads can be reopened by request via the "ALERT US" button. ~T
