Can't post to a thread older than 435 days?

How about warning that one can't post to a thread older than "X" days before one takes the time to compose a message. Better than that, just have the thread closed so that one doesn't waste their time composing a message only to discover it can't be posted. I am sure I am not the first person to discover this limitation the hard way. Thanks and JMHO!

Best way to avoid it is to look at the dates of the last posting.

Sure will now! Just a little dismaying to take the time to compose a response only to receive the message when going to post. Seems like a there would be a simple software solution to prevent it from ever happening to anyone else again.

You can post to an old thread. With the thread open, scroll down to the Quick Reply area that says "warning, this thread is over XXX days old, blah blah." Type your response, then check the box indicating that you "are aware that the thread is rather old but still want to reply" and click Post Quick Reply.

It looks like this...

That's the way it's done 👍, thanks, Sarah.
That message is there to advise you of the age of the thread. We don't close threads because of age. Many times some helpful info gets added to these older threads.

Another good tip is, if you're going to pen a lengthy response, to type it in Notepad, MS word or some other word processing program. Then just copy/paste it in the reply.

Sometimes things just go *poof*, whether it's a transmission hiccup on my end or the other. Saved myself a lot of frustration on social networking sites by not making the actual post my one & only prose.

There is great need for a sarcasm font.

Thanks for teaching me about the features of IRV2. Nice to know that the age limitation can be defeated. I agree that good old threads can continue to be provide updated useful information.

I mostly use notepad to write my responses but occasionally I don't. Been using computers since the MS-DOS days and did some beta testing for several companies. Believe you me, I have seen lots of stuff, go *poof*. The post that I was intending to make to an old thread was written in TextEdit. Still have it as I never delete anything.
