    Not that I am aware of. But if you do acknowledge it when you start the thread please.

    Many old threads get resurrected by accident. If you search something online and click on it an old thread may be opened. My first post to this forum 2 years ago happened this way. The thread was from 2009.

    Old threads are often resurrected, usually by new members that find a thread interesting and applicable to their collecting area. It is good form to let people know when doing it though. Cheers, RickO

    Rick- Do me a favor, make a brief comment on the above link.

    As long as the thread was made on the first version of this software, which came into use in February, 2002, you should be able to post to it.

    So if I posted a reply to the above linked thread, wouldn't that generate a bump?

    Not sure if it matters but that old thread was started by a now-banned member. 🤔

    I am pretty sure I've seen threads older than that one resurrected.

    Thanks @JBK
