    What's with all the old posts

    For the last few days I've seen lots of posts from 2007! So many that I have to go through several pages just to get to the current posts.

    I see comments are being made on these old posts which bring them to the front, but just little one or two words.

    Is there a reason for this? Am I missing something? Confused!

    Edit: I should mention it seems to be on the pictures page only.

    At first I thought maybe it was a troll. But guess not.

    haven't seen them. I have my settings set to thread start time, rather than latest post. Works great.

    If you use the "archive" feature on the board (bottom of the page), you can look at just the newly started threads. That's all I use anymore.

    This same question was asked by Joyce888 last week. The old pictures are nice, but you can tell some of the posters didn't look at the date the thread was started by the comments they make. It seems like a lot of them were resurrected by the same few people. I wonder if it's a QB Facebook thing. I always double check the date now.

    we keep all the old posts specifically so they'll be available to new members.
    old members like to reminisce, too, or search out things they remember and want to review or try.

    there's nothing wrong with it.
    quilts are timeless.
    so are most questions and advice.

    I also have an eddres you can use if you need to contact me with questions or suggestions that relate to our community: patricej@quiltingboard.com

    2007 quilt pictures

    Why is the website recycling 2007 quilt postings on the 2012 current pages?
