What's up with all the old posts?
For the past four days I've seen at least one extremely old post a day coming back to life.
I guess I'm just wondering why this is bad, and why they all keep getting locked. I realize that the member may no longer be active and things like that, but I'm sure there are those that might find the info in them useful. I also realize that one could search for specific threads, but I usually just do the new posts button. Just curious guys!130g: 4 Angelfish, 2 Roseline Sharks, 12 Conga Tetras, 5 Kuhli Loaches, 1 Otocinslus, 1 Corydora

If someone has a question, it is better to create a new thread. This allows them to detail their experiences in a better manner and encourages more activity within the thread.

There's really two reasons.
First, it's always a lot better to start your own thread to ask a question rather than posting it in a thread that is very old. Less confusing that way and you'll likely get a lot better answer to your question.
The second reason is that it makes no sense to reply to a question that was likely asked and answer a long time a go and the OP has moved on to other things. best to focus on the current threads and try to help some one currently looking for help or feedback.
Edit, I was ninja'd again

Band width management. Sadly a lot of interesting stuff can be lost rather than archived.
