can we lock everything again pls kthx
I've been around for 17 years and around Halloween it's always the same thing on almost every calculator website out there.

I am kinda guilty of this with my recent 10-years necropost on Omnimaga, but I don't think it counts since it was a legitimate project update. xd
Like I hypothesized in another thread, it's probably due to school starting up or kids trying to escape the stress of studying for midterms. This is obviously apparent when you look at statistics like calculator videos. Take a look at my channel view statistics for instance.

See that huge spike at the end? That's just from the day after schools started up. My channel views have raised significantly, during the last few months. This spike is obviously translates to calculator forums like Cemetech.

Back to the necroposting, when no one has finished a port of a popular game to the CE, the newbies want to know why. So regardless of the projects last post date, they post anyways. I cant say I blame them, we don't really have any obvious rules about necroposting until after they post and there aren't any safeguards against it.
Lets have up-votes and down-votes like on Reddit, then we can cyberbully the bad behavior away Evil or Very Mad

I know I'm being bad and going off-topic, but because Cemetech is a very education focused site by nature it's always fun to look back at the analytics and try and pin point dates and stuff to the general school schedule.

Here's our traffic graph from a couple years ago, this about 13-14 months of visitor traffic. See if you can point out the holidays and breaks. Very Happy
Thank you Alex...
is it possible to have X axe graduate with month letter ?
I'm pro necro posting.

I'm not talking about never posting in old threads, I'm talking about adding nothing to the discussion, and reviving an old thread with something along the lines of
"Any update on this project? When will it be finished?" On a thread that hasn't had any posts since 2008.
I'm not gonna lie, I'm tempted to mark my calendar two years from now just to post something inane in this thread.

I do like what Omni implemented with having a warning if a thread is over ___ days since the last post. It makes it a bit more obvious to the user that it kind of goes against etiquette. That said, as others have mentioned, there are definitely appropriate times to necropost, especially necroupdates.
