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.

Re: Contradiction in Mods' rules.
If it's been discussed a lot recently (a week or two ago) then why open a new thread? Just go and read that thread. If you have something completely new and original to offer then that would warrant a new thread anyway.

Any confusion can usually be dispersed with a little bit of common sense.

And rep is deadly serious stuff.

Re: Contradiction in Mods' rules.
Well what if the mod thinks there is nothing new in it. And if I post in that week old thread and the mod think what i wrote was nothing new even if I did, what happens then?

They come round to your house with baseball bats. Then they play baseball on your front lawn for a few minutes before asking if you have a fanta.

That common sense thing I mentioned, it's quite easy to apply. Why not just post in current and existing threads until you have been here a while and see how things roll?

You could also find out who the mod is for the section you want to bump or start a thread in and shoot them a short PM asking if it's okay.

What's the subject that you urgently need to discuss anyway?

Re: Contradiction in Mods' rules.
If there's a thread on your topic from the past week or 2 then just check that thread. There's no need to post repeat threads every few weeks because it knocks more original threads off the first page and users get bored of the same topic being recycled all the time. Just use a bit of common sense. If your topic has been posted and discussed recently then there's no need to post it again, just read that thread.

Re: Contradiction in Mods' rules.
And after reading that thread, if I feel like posting on that thread?

Just use a bit of common sense. If the topic has been discussed and the discussion has finished then there's no need to bump it unless there's a news update for example.

Re: Contradiction in Mods' rules.
It's funny, because I see a new ''Best wrestler to never win a world title'' thread every week and it never gets deleted. Maybe if you would allow to bump threads like these, we wouldn't have a new one for this topic every week?

Re: Contradiction in Mods' rules.
What if I don't have a news update but want to add my opinion to that topic?
