I completely agree that courtesy should be shown to all members of the forum, both new and old.
I hope that people appreciate that I entitled this topic 'a polite request' and not anything more abrupt, rude or condescending.

I would like to say that I've noticed some older threads have been resurrected in the past week. I'm very pleased to see this and hope that newer readers have enjoyed catching up on some of the speculation and discussion that are contained within.

I think that duplicate topics are annoying, but sometimes it is not the poster's thought. I once created a topic "design a charecter" I looked everywhere to see if there was any topic simula. When there was not I posted it. Then someone came on the topic and said there was anouther topic like it.

Not trying to be mean or anything,but thats Lukes,Elliots and Khris' decision to make.If a topic is too long,Luke has started a new topic with '.2' at the end or whatever and locked the old one before.

I don't think we should stop making game topics like 100+ or This Or That, let people have their fun, but instead have a 'Forum Games' category in the Off-Topic section. It would kep it tidier.

Great idea, GBD, maybe you should post this in the suggestions.

It's annoying when you want to find a topic and you have to scroll through all the games. ;)

I don't mind bumping on discussion topics such as 'Man-bat' or 'Mad Hatter' because then it prevents duplicate topics being made and furthers the discussion.
Bumping for 'New Screenshot' can be tiresome though.
