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!

If you wanted to get real fancy, you could have different colors for different years.

I'm trying to accent it while keeping it subtle...

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.

that's not a bad idea, i'll add it to my list of things to research.

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.

Seriously considering going down to Florida for the work. A month or so there could set me off for the next 6 months, easy. Anyone else going that way?
