I just got a warning for posting in a thread in which the last post was made less than two months ago - hardly ancient history - and I was discussing the topic in question.

The rules states that "arbitrary necroposting" is not allowed with no detail whatsoever as to what this entails.

1. What is the cut-off point, based on the date of the most recent post, at which posting in a thread would be considered necroing?

2. What is considered "arbitrary"? Surely it would make more sense to reply to a topic rather than have people create new ones discussing the exact same thing and having multiple topics clogging up the forum for no reason.

No hard cutoff, just common sense. Two months since last response clearly means it isn't a "current" thread.

arbitrary:
  • adj.
    Determined by chance, whim, or impulse, and not by necessity, reason, or principle.
