When did you guys get rid of the zombie?! I've just scrolled down to the bottom of an old thread and instead of our friendly zombie there's just a flat "FYI this thread hadn't been posted on for over a year" shock

If you're going to mess around with it anyway, you could at least do what people have been asking for for ages and put a zombie warning at the top of the page as well as the bottom.

Bring back the zombie!

I would say it's because a lot of outsiders don't understand what a zombie thread is.

Trying to stop them from reactivating them

Thanks for the feedback. Yes, that's correct - we have removed the warning at the top of thread in favour of the new 'FYI' by the message box.

Trying to stop them from reactivating them
in which case they could just turn off new posts after a certain time... not exactly difficult...

Gosh how ... boring.
I feel that fun is being sucked out of everything quite quickly. sad
The site's going all <whispers> mainstream.
Next you'll saying that the biscuits are gone from pages with broken links.

Boo. The entire world knows what a zombie is, and the entire world understands the joke when linked to a zombie thread. Put back the damn zombie and stop being so po-faced.

The poor, wee zombie. I rather liked him!

ChuckBiscuits Tue 18-Oct-16 16:50:41

I much prefer the zombie. Dullsville.

I thought the zombie warning was always at the bottom? I use mobile mainly, if that makes a difference.

Phew, for a minute there I though Zombie had left, not just a zombie (and now I've said zombie too many times in my head and the word just sounds odd). But yeah, that little zombie with the red warning was useful and fun, #bringbackthezombie.

I have a Lindt bar to eat later, during Strictly It Takes Two. Simple pleasures.

People respond better to images. The zombie should be reinstated right in the middle of the message box.
