Not to mention at least one multi paragraph manifesto. Who has the time to read all of that let alone write it?Indeed! 122 (oops! 123) lashes of this particular 'dead horse' (i.e. policy in regards to dormant threads) would seem 'cruel and unusual' at best
Yes, that's obvious. Like many, you seem to think marketing and advertising are interchangeable terms. I hate the term "telemarketing" because it perpetuates that confusion. That activity is pure advertising.Cant see what have mislabeled at all...

Marketing is looking ahead a few years, studying what customers want and where the market is headed, and what your company is capable of, and then developing the best products you can.
Thats very true back in the days of drawing offices and A frame boards with parallel whats its, we have cad packages now and e marketing. Ask the owners to explain it to you as they run and own a sucessful marketing company with a brand called AAC.
I know I know, you been in the game 150 years etc etc.................. just wait till you find out whats been done to the gramophone! and please dont think the next time you pick up the phone and a woman dosnt ask you what number you want that the phone is broken. Oh regarding phones your not gonna believe this but the come without cords!!! I kid you not you can use them outside and......... why am I bothering? your never going to believe all this anyway.
Would suggest you look on wikipedia, but then i got to explain that this is what we now use instead of the encyclopedia Britannica, sorry but I just dont have time to argue the smallest details with somone who needs such a massive firmware upgrade
Well for those precious few who do not have ADD and actually like reading it's no big deal.Not to mention at least one multi paragraph manifesto. Who has the time to read all of that let alone write it?
We call pureed equine tissue 'Alpo' 'round these parts --- Although I can think of other food products meeting that description, the boys in "Austin North" are too well connected to brook annoyance!Sorry HP we gone past mince and onto the recovered meat paste process! yuk.
For a while in the UK it was called 'Lasagna' in some supermarkets .We call pureed equine tissue 'Alpo' 'round these parts --- Although I can think of other food products meeting that description, the boys in "Austin North" are too well connected to brook annoyance!
I was bored so I thought I would look at this thread again. Kind of funny actually.I still cannot figure out the mixed messages of this site's goal or reasoning behind the policy of not locking old threads until someone makes a post on the old thread. I've heard various reasons but none have made sense. Here is the latest post to an old thread (see below), subsequent locking of said thread and no instruction to the new member.
Now, I've had various theories of why this policy is in place but, all have been proven unsatisfactory (or I've been told they are not valid by the site administration/owner).
In any case, on such explanation included something about old threads show up on search results from google, it brings new users to the site. Well, guys, if I was a new user, brought by the google search results, was interested in the thread, bothered to sign up with the intention to make a comment or ask a follow-on question, see the warning that the thread is old (with no verbiage that the thread will be locked if a post is made), and then get the door slammed me for making a comment or follow-on question - I would think to my self, WTF, and then not return to this site.

Example warning for your pleasure - most of the more active members never see this...

Under what circumstances would a post to an old thread not get locked?
(Besides the extremely rare occasion that an OP comes back to update, since that is about 1 in 1000 and serves no significant justification compared to the user dissatisfaction of the current situation)
Make a decision, either allow old threads to linger and be posted to, OR lock them.
Or at least change the wording in the pink box to, "if you post to this thread, it will be locked" - also, make sure that message is visible before the reader bothers to sign up so you don't waste his time.
As a moderator, if you can't say something nice you would be better off saying nothing at all.If you don't like how a site is run you can always leave, the ultimate democracy in action. Until the other site does something you don't like that is.
If a policy is not accidental but a deliberate decision, there isn't much you can do about it except take it or leave.
You can suggest what you think is a better proposal, but the staff do not have to buy into it.
