Thread bumping

Hey, why can't we bump a thread that's old? I tried to bump the rapid photo thread and it's locked because it's 126 days old. This place seems pretty cluttered with short threads of the same stuff. It would be cool to look through a bunch of pages of sweet rapid pics instead of searching a bunch of 1 page threads. Also, it would be cool to have a collection of knowledge instead of people starting the same "what shuttle for xxx?" or "what camps on xxx?".

Any thoughts there?

I do like the warning, "This thread is 126 days old, do you really want to post to it?"
But if it's pertinent, by all means, post away and add the knowledge to the same thread. Far better than having to search the "rapid photo" threads from 2016, 2017, 2018...and review them all separately to find the single photo you remembered seeing previously.


Semi-on topic: I do like the Google custom search engine. It does seem to do a good job of finding pertinent information, even though there are a lot of mini-threads it turns up.

Yeah, I got the warning. Checked the box. Spent time typing up something, uploaded pics, hit submit, and then it said "sorry, can't post to thread because it's 126 days old." Why is their even reply and submit buttons if it isn't going to let you post?

Here's one of the pics just because I don't want to start a new thread to post it.

I agree, it should have a warning, to make sure the poster isn't wasting his effort on a dead horse, but it should not prevent the post.

@Conundrum Can you send me a link to the thread so I can see why it wouldn't allow you to post?

Thanks Dave. I still remember that time you lost an entire trip report from your high-water Arkansas run from Pine Creek to Canon City, IIRC, because the text entry box timed out.

For all folks posting lengthy stuff that is important to you, I highly recommend composing the text and saving it to an email or off-line document before hitting "submit" so that if something screwy happens you've got a copy saved.

Here's the thread. I did check the box but then wouldn't let me post.

I just did a test post and it let me revive it for some reason.
