First, lets talk about what necromancing is:
- Necromancy stands for reviving the dead, which translates to reviving topics that are a year old or more.
Now, for the story. Joey P - a 17-year-old from Vladivostok, Russia - has been necromancing posts since he first joined, in 2017, but his necromancing has become more frequent this month. In fact, it has been soo frequent that it has reached a point where this can no longer be accepted.
And because of the entire Joey P situation, i now suggest a anti-necromancing ruleset.
Here is the proposed ruleset, suggested by pedro_jg over on the discord server:
"Do not bump old topics (a.k.a. necromancing) if they didn't receive new replies for over a year [or whatever time period], unless:
1. You are the original poster of the topic;
2. You state clearly in your post its reason, showing why it wouldn't be better as a thread of its own"
I hope that this situation is solved as soon as possible, as this would not only make a protection against the revival of old topics from the 2000s/early 2010s, but it would also add a layer of protection against spam.
