ECG, in the last two days, two old GQ threads were bumped by new members.
This one one was bumped with literally nothing more than what you called a political jab (I’m not arguing that point). You came in, told the new poster to not to make political jabs in GQ and left the thread open.
In this one, however, a new member came in, added some data to the thread, in a different font, and an hour later you locked the thread. In your post you said two things. 1)You can bump threads if you add new or significant information and 2)It is best to stick to the default font for posts. The person certainly added something significant to the thread. Lots of data in that post and you can’t honestly expect a new poster to sit there and check each person’s profile to see when they last logged on. Personally, since old threads are allowed when they add something new, I assume you locked it because it used the wrong font and I assume that’s what the new poster will think as well if/when they come back.
To my eyes, I read that as anything other than default font, wrong. Political jabs in GQ…not so bad. At least that’s how new members are going to see it.
Help me out.
We certainly don’t make this place welcoming for new posters. What do you think SisterSmile will think when she comes back to find her thread locked? It was a well thought out post, maybe she could have been a good poster, we might never know.
