Contradiction in Mods' rules.
I'm new here and read the rules and saw a contradiction in what the mods say. They say that you cannot open a thread that has been discussed numerous times before, but you cannot also bump up threads older than a week. So basically if I want to discuss that has been discussed before, I cannot open a thread, but if I find a thread that is what I'm looking for but is older than a week, I cannot comment on it and if someone thinks I did it for no reason, then I might get a warning.
So what am i to do?
P.S is rep a serious matter or not, because the rules said no and members seem to think it's a big deal.
