I just thought that it might be useful to make the month/date/year for each thread/post stand out more. SOmething like larger font/bold/colour??

Might help people from committing the foul art of NECROMANCY!

Green stands out fine...good color for necromancy overall..

Honestly I think we may be in a pinch late to stop the dark grimoire arts...

There's nothing inherently wrong with resurrecting an old thread if you have something relevant and useful to add. It only becomes a problem when folks reply to old road dawg posts and stuff like that. Hopefully this new feature will help people realize when the person "passing through SF" passed through three years ago. :p

Another option, if necromancy specifically is the issue to address, is a little popup warning you if more than a certain amount of time has passed since the last post in the thread. If you click into the reply box, a little JS script could warn you if more than say 90 days have passed since the last response, and make it super obvious that you're late to the party.

Since this is related to threads that may have an expiration date, could threads in the dawg and ride sections have a default expiration of 7 days that could be changed by the OP if they have a more flexible schedule?

we don't have a user-selectable pruning system in this message board software (at least not yet - ill look into it) so i've set the threads in certain sections (namely the road dogs and ride board) to auto-delete after 6 months with no reply. there is a pop up message that announces this in any section that has this feature active.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$540.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $200.00 of $200.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

Does anybody know a Shaggy? Met this guy at the Summer Solstice street party on Milwaukee's East Side this past Saturday busking.
