    'I want to look back 3 years ago.'


    Sometimes I may want to look back 10 or more years ago.


    Best thing to do to avoid necroposting is to get in the habit of checking thread date before hitting Submit Reply.

    I would like someone to show me a post from 3 years ago that is relevant today that is not addressed in a newer post.
    There you go, from 2013: new missions mini-guide

    Believe it or not I still receive +rep sometimes (last one was this year) and even questions ingame from newbies.

    I'm sure there are much better examples than that one, with much much more relevant information.

    Please don't delete stuff. Period.

    Not being rude but I new I would get a ton of "Save them" posts. Doesn't anyone realize this is the not the same game is was a year ago let alone 5 or 10 years ago ? I would like someone to show me a post from 3 years ago that is relevant today that is not addressed in a newer post.
    Here's one from 2014 that I just linked to a new player in chat: http://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/fo...ing-Amplifiers

    This is just one example that immediately came to mind, as others said there's tons of worthwhile info here.

    Loot 2.0 might have brought some changes to hunting, but the vast majority of game mechanics hasn't changed, and most of the older info relating to mining, crafting, trading, items, beastiary, and so forth is still good info. And really... if this is not the same game as 5 years ago, then why am I still able to play so effectively with 10+ year old gear?


    How about instead of removing something useful to others, you just learn to read the dates on posts and make your own judgement call on the accuracy of the data?

    I'll stop or I will be here all day

    I'm pretty sure the admin/mods are not ran off their feet with the odd necro bump, particularly not enough to warrant a mass deletion of some really useful stuff.

    Truly I mean no offense to anyone just a suggestion
    No offence intended by those who disagree either. I don't want old content to be erased as a matter of principle. And while there already is a rule against necro posting, enforcement has mellowed down over time and that's cool in my book. Just relax, enjoy your game and leave others to theirs.
    1. I NEVER post off-topic.
    2. If you disagree, go to 1.

    I see the old posts listed and you are assuming these have not been address in a later post(s), so of little historical value. Good posts from all. Having said that how many 1000s of posts are worthless ?

    Surely any questions answered in the older posts could be asked and answered again in posts the present .

    Anyway I don't think either side is going to change their mind, I know I am not. So there we are we agree to disagree and all is well, hence the Term "Freedom of Speech and Thoughts".

    Thanks for the replies.

    You're right... I'm sold on your idea now, and in fact I think you should be the curator. You need to go through the potentially hundreds of posts every day that are marked for deletion and verify if the information is either no longer applicable or is covered in a more recent post, so that we are only deleting the redundant ones.

    Good thing you're retired!
