These days I keep seeing people bumping old topics which are usually 2+ years for little to no reason. It's understandable if you want to reflect on an old topic made a few months ago but replying on a topic which had its last post in 2017 is ridiculous.

I say depends on the topic.

If its something that doesn't add to the discussion, yeah? If its just done for the sake of posting and its like spam, I guess do it?

Example 1: If I necrobumped a topic like my own Q&A after a 2 year absence, don't report it.

Example 2: If its just plain random topic, then it deoends if the topic can still have life in it - for example a Gameria Discussion Topic obviously shouldn't be reported since its pinned but if its to do with something like favourite ingredients of a holoday - it makes no sense to bump it.

Only report users if its too frequent I'd say.

Also this is true.

Dope Quote Collection:
Ibzy is the Arabic text because everytime I see him he says he is going to Arabic lessons.
Rachel: Well, what I do know is that because of you, this party will be a total disaster because the winner of The FC Games will be absent!
Bethany: Don't put all of the blame on me! You are responsible as well! If I had seen a name spelled like O-W-E-H-N-N on your list, this party wouldn't be a disaster
Rachel: You said what now?
Bethany: Owen! With "H" and double "N"
Rachel: Oh, Lord! You don't even know how his name is spelled!
Bethany: Am I supposed to?
Rachel: Yes!
Bethany: I am sorry, I am not a denominator.
Rachel: I am sure you don't even know how that's spelled either. Besides, Owen is a quite usual name nowadays. When I walk down the street, I can name at least 3 Owens at a time.
Bethany: Then why didn't you invite one of them?
Rachel: Because surname is such an important factor as well, you fool!

It's under Forum Guidelines. Necrobumping is breaking the rules.  Grin
Backseat moderating is not allowed either
Technically there isn't any rule against backseat moderating. The only thing Matt says on it is "Avoid backseat moderating!". Anyway, reporting isn't backseat moderating, it's just making the mods and admins awareness and letting them handle it.

I agree with you.

1. Posting in your own forum/fangame/fanfiction/Q&A after a long time to revive/bump it isn't against the rules, so it isn't report-worthy.
2. Pinned topics in a gameria board and a restaurant topic (if it's your own and you are willing to work on it again) are the only topics which can be posted in even in it's over 30 days old.

there has to be a reason. if it's your own topic and you're posting something relevant in it, it's fine. if you're just bumping it cuz you want other people to post in it, that's kinda lame.
