Zombie Threads

Is there a way that Tech could make a zombie thread have a bright red OP or some other distinguishing feature? It is annoying to spend ages reading a thread to discover it is years old and have several zombie thread posts at the end which only bump it again.

What a genius idea, do that MNHQ.

Cor blimey, quote. Didn't you think of that a couple of months back? Clearly MNHQ took no notice of what we were saying on your thread wink

Yep, I just posted on the other thread grin.

I expect that who ever does the tec. thought, ooo that sounds hard, and said, "I look into it' , and hoped it wouldn't be mentioned again.

But it would stop a lot of trolls having fun,

I did ask my BiL who does understands these things, he started talking, I redesigned the layout of a house in my head, and tuned back into BiL as he finished with ......so it's quite possible but it depends on ........ and I took a swig of G&T, and went back to rearranging staircases.

but at some point I will try harder to absorb the relevant information, it may be sometime, and when the gin runs out.

If you write Zombie thread on a zombie thread, some sneery bastard has a go. Accusing you of being newbiest, that the discussion is still interesting and so forth.

Then I get depressed and go off searching for chocolate when I COULD be purchasing random crisp because Mnet told me too and adding much needed gin revenue to the site.

I think MN towers should give out gin vouchers, every ten thousand post or something.

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 29-Jun-13 18:08:32

Hello. We'll put our zombie thread thinking caps on.

But no to vouchers; the gin's all ours. <gavel>

sad

Tee2072 Sat 29-Jun-13 18:26:38

There is a gin shortage, after all. You can't expect them to share.

The last thread that was marked Zombie, wasn't really one. It was only a month old.

I wonder if the OP updated...

GIN SHORTAGE [shock

Noooooooooo seriously? I might have to buy up all remaining stock.

My neighbour yesterday gave me two slabs of those G&T ready mixed cans, they were in the cheap sell off bit in Morrisons, about 28p each.

I love taking them to the beach.

Tee2072 Sat 29-Jun-13 18:40:52

Seriously. There's a thread somewhere.

Fiderer Sat 29-Jun-13 19:53:24

The thread's here and while some <narrows eyes at Tee> may accuse me of spending too much time on this, reading this thread has given me an even better name for the gin campaign.

Tee2072 Sat 29-Jun-13 20:46:30

I never said any such thing! SIOB

Fiderer Sat 29-Jun-13 21:39:32

:grinpens eyes really wiiiiide at Tee::

wink

Fiderer Sat 29-Jun-13 21:40:16

Blimey: that went grinny.

:: opens eyes really wiiiide at Tee::

Tee2072 Sat 29-Jun-13 21:44:04

I've even Tweeted your thread and your name!

Of all the things to accuse me of. I mean Really!

::flounces off::

::actually just going to bed::

::will probably say more from my Kindle Fire HD::*

*Not a stealth boast. An actual boast.^

^Chrome thinks that should say 'Not a stealth boat. An actual boat. grin

Fiderer Sat 29-Jun-13 22:02:21

Y'all right there Tee ::head tilt:: ?

Cos that's a fair whack of ::::::***^^ thingies.

Apols if I maligned you.

<gin>

Fiderer Sat 29-Jun-13 22:04:24

Am off to Twitter...
