    Default Do you update your old posts?

    This is totally random but would it annoy you if someone updated a thread from like 3 months ago? So often I'll read old threads or be Googling and there is never a conclusion! So frustrating. But then in the outcome is not found out for a few months and all these old threads started are made active again. Would that annoy people? Looking at my old threads I now have outcomes for most of them but figure4 months later. Who even cares now!?

    I do if it's something fairly recent. But if it's more than a week or so I assume people will have forgotten. Also I don't like bumping them up if it's been resolved because so many people respond without reading through, so you end up with 6 new responses to your original question.

    Id love it for people to post outcomes. So many times I have googled for answers and find the posts go nowhere. So no personally I wouldn't be annoyed.
    But thats just me.

    This like me. It annoys me when I am trying to find things out and there is no conclusion. I think I updated when I was having big baby issues as to his eventual weight and issues in labour because people searching for that are really going to want to know. That was about it though.

    For certain threads I do agree. When the OP of the thread goes 'update, such and such' I'm like, cool!

    But I'm weird and will remember things so it'll annoy me at 3 in the morning, when I'm lying in bed not able to sleep because I don't know how it's turned out. So, yeah
