Necroposting
« on: April 18, 2015, 03:29:33 AM »
Verbage presented when registering for the forums says something about not responding to a thread where the last post is over a year old.  However, I went to post to a thread where the last post was over 120 days old and was presented with a warning stating such.  Am I getting on your nerves yet...and you don't have a demon smiley icon... ;D

No nerves here to get on!  Your post will appear just fine, it's just letting you know that there hasn't been any activity on it for a while...

Post might appear fine, but one of the mods might get on your case.  I just wanted to point out that there may be a discrepancy in the registration text.
