What is considered a necropost?

What I mean is, how old does a topic have to be before posting on it would be necroposting?

What is considered a necropost?

It sorta depends.

Generally I've heard 6 months, but I think you can necropost in other ways.

For example, if you reply on a topic that has been resolved (e.g. someone asks a question and it gets answered), there's really no reason to reply on that topic again.

Furthermore, if you reply to any “dead” post and you are off-topic (such as asking a new question), that may be considered necroposting, even if the topic is only 1 month old.

Also, necroposting does not exist in the Suggestions forums, as long as you stay on-topic.

This is my forum signature! On a forum post, it is okay for Scratchers to advertise in their forum signature. The signature is the stuff that shows up below the horizontal line on the post. It will show up on every post I make.

I was a Scratch Team member from May 10th 2019 to October 29th 2021. I reached 20,000 forum posts on June 24th 2024.

Thanks, that clarified it a bit.

To add on, usually a necropost is over 2 months old.
I've also heard that for asking a new question, that is called thread hijacking.

Please don't go off-topic, it takes away from the discussion.
