There seems to be an increase in zombie threads lately.Could we please have a zombie alert at the start of the thread - it would be trivially easy to do especially as you already have one at the bottom.
There's a warning as the poster is about to post asking them are they sure they want to re-animate it. They have to agree, so it seems people do it on purpose.
Hi Ifitquackslikeaduck We recently rolled our sleeves up and decided to revamp the whole 'zombie thread alert'. We didn't want to put newcomers off with a rather large zombie sign and so now, the alerts are a bit more subtle... Hopefully, more welcoming too! <crosses fingers>
At least the original alert for Zombie threads were somewhat obvious, even if people didn't take any notice."We didn't want to put newcomers off with a rather large zombie sign and so now, the alerts are a bit more subtle... "Subtle? Subtle? Don't make me laugh, nobody notices them now
But the zombie alert is only there for the first person to (re) post on it so subsequent viewers don't see that alert.Does it really put off new people?
What happened to the "Are you sure you want to post on this zombie thread?" message? I thought that worked quite well, if it's the thing you're talking about that has been taken away...
Old Zombie thread alert - little Zombie chap with red textAnd new Zombie thread alert - small text under the posting boxSorry the images are so small
That new message is rubbish! The old one was much better
