Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

Is the two-weeks gravedigging warning still relevant?

A lot has changed here since 2011 when we got dozens of new posts daily, but our gravedig warning hardly has. The forum staff may be more lax, but that scary red warning still lingers around here, spooking out anybody who dares to scroll down on a topic as inactive as two weeks, and serving as our nanny. But do we still need it?

Now we have like six posts a day, so over half of Game Discussion's first page is "dead" according to the warning which is basically the website admitting its own defeat. If I recall correctly, lots of gravedigging posts were "noobier" players who slightly cluttered up the forums by accident with questions and such, but nowadays most of us are experienced users who slightly clutter up the forums for our own amusement know what we're doing when we post on older topics, especially those that have only been inactive for a few weeks.

The conclusion? Maybe the gravedig minimum needs to increase to something like three or four weeks. Maybe the gravedigging rule could be replaced with a something else like a rule not to bump or start lots of topics at the same time. Maybe the warning text should be yellow instead of red. Or magenta. I don't know. Figure it out yourself.
I'm 2spooked now. That flashing red warning is gonna haunt my nightmares.

I didn’t know it triggered after only 2 weeks.

Maybe a month is better. I wouldn’t remove it or make it less visible though.

Re: Is the two-weeks gravedigging warning still relevant?

Is there still consensus here that the gravedigging stuff should be eased up a bit?

I say increase it to 6 months, I'm always scared to gravedig a topic that is still relevant just not talked about as much

I personally believe that, and with this being said I also want to make it perfectly clear to anyone reading that this is not meant to be taken offensively nor as a crude remark or in bad taste, that my opinion on the subject is

Re: Is the two-weeks gravedigging warning still relevant?

I don't think there's any pressing need to remove the scary warning. Those of us with experience on the forums just ignore it and new users probably are better off being discouraged from gravedigging.

Re: Is the two-weeks gravedigging warning still relevant?

Bumping this since extending the gravedig timer is a popular suggestion and nobody's expressed disagreement so far.
