I say we should allow this, but only after 24 hours. It would be good for reviving and bringing attention to threads that no one's posted in or saw, and would most definately help in other scenarios as well. What say you?

Not a bad idea.

The worry, of course, lies in spamming. After looking through various boards that have a high posting ratio, I've seen people posting to their threads "BUMP!" just to get them back at the top. Sure, you might get your thread noticed, but sometimes there's a reason no one posted to your thread, and you're just aggrivating them now.

On other boards, even though you have infinite posting access, they still limit you on posting more than once in the same thread. If we were to instill double posting, the hope is that people won't abuse it and post more than twice-in-a-row in the same thread.

It's hard to spam when you can only post a second time after 24 hours, Rogue.

Keeping this in mind, I'm neutral on the suggestion here. I backed it over at Acmlm's, but they have active romhacking forums that have important threads that have good reasons to be bumped. Here, we have no such data threads about ROMs, no important project threads (that I know of). However, I also see no major problems, so... I don't care.

Theres no point in it. I can see where your comming from, but the negatives hold it back so much.

The admins can double post. But theres no point in us doing so. We use it only for staff related issues. Even then it's rare.

Threads that die, die for a reason. If you post something, and the thread dies, then it's down. Even if you posted a second time to bring it back up, all you've managed to do was pull up a dead thread, and thus we have even more clutter up in the top.

Lets take the Story Realm for example. I'm sure everyone whole LOVE a double post option in there, but when noone replies to your story, theres a large chance that noone cares to read it. In that senerio, you'd be posting for no reason, due to noone careing enough to even give you feedback.

Like I said. The suggestion was noted, but the downfalls to it outweighs it tenfold.

With me, I could see this being useful in an RP thread only if it was "game-like". For example, if you have the members fighting a group of monsters and you have already posted the reactions to everything and nobody posts for a while, then you could post again saying that the monsters attacked again. I don't know how long this could go on for, but it could get people to realize that their characters are about to lose a fight.
