This needs more attention, because I noticed it has been happening a lot recently. (the most recent being a thread about rumored Zelda 3DS titles)
Could there be like...an...auto-lock system that closes out threads that are a year old?

Seen threads that were even created in '10 get bumped by unnecessary posts.

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...
Yet Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.

Didn't catch that....that's good then. Hopefully a PM system will show up at some point too, that way we could ask if a certain thread could be bumped if there's a good reason for it.
Anyways, this thread can be a reminder or whatever then. x3

If you want to send a PM... Just @mention someone in a post and delete it quickly after! A notification will be sent with the message to the mentioned people.

Right?

I think it depends on the other user's settings.

Well if its inactive, its kinda pointless to leave it open, lol. Besides, it'll just be locked/archived, not deleted, lol

Personally I hope we don't get a PM system. I don't want to deal with idiot spammers.

But it isn't actually a problem unless its an old news or rumour thread. Reviving a thread about a specific game discussion or your favourite ice cream flavour doesn't do much harm. (Terrible example - what a horrible thread idea :L)

They'd get banned quickly, just as they do now. Plus, blocking people could probably be achieved easily.

If the rules say that a user should search for a topic then why should necroposting/bumping threads be classed as a bad thing?

It depends on how it is done really. If you are adding something of value to a conversation that's one thing, but to bring up an old post just to say "Yeah I like that game" or something along those lines is a bit annoying. Also if someone is asking for help and you post a solution 3 years after the person posted the question chances are they have either found a solution or they have move on.

Also keep in mind that six months is generally the rule around here. If a thread has been dead for six months or more than its ok to start a fresh one.

I dunno. Some conversations should be necro'd, but some just shouldn't and it's spam. I don't think an automated system would be able to tell the difference to the satisfaction of anyone.

Honestly, I can't think of much that would be worth necroing a year or older thread that couldn't be solved by simply making a new thread and linking to it.

Actually, in discussions with Ant about a PM system, we've been against it because we'd have no way of monitoring said discussions without having to break the privacy of people attempting to have PM discussions, They'd no longer be PMs, just 'M's, so Ant's got a solution in mind to help users send messages to one another, it's just that to my knowledge it's gonna be a public system. anyone will be able to see what you're saying even though it's technically a direct message from one user to the other not sent via forums or main site comment thread. If you're looking for a truly private way to chat with one another, Nintendo Life is not now and likely will never be the place to do so, I'm afraid. We are not interested in giving ourselves yet another avenue for spammers to go after our users, nor are we interested in having to delve into what should be a personal discussion between two users.

As for solving the necro problem, it's one of the things that's in the works, and we can only continue to beg your patience.
