How long does it take for posting somewhere to be considered necromancy?

I tried to find the part about necrmoancy in the rules and FAQ section but I couldnt find it. So weird.

Necromancy date: 1 month.

If you want to revive a topic that hasnt been posted in for a month, your post must be very constructive, 0% Spam, then the Mods will let the topic start being active again.

Hopefully that makes sense.

There is no set date for Necromancy. The general rule is this, though; if it's been a while (we [for some reason] leave that up to personal judgement) then the topic is dead. If there is a clear resolution of the discussion, it is dead.

In general, no topic will survive after a month of no posting. Most topics won't even survive after a week of no posting. This community is still of the size that, if a topic makes it on to page 2, it's pretty much dead.

Now, as for posting on such topics:
1) If there is a clear resolution, and your post is going to be nothing more than "I agree with [insert name here]" then don't post; you will only bring back a dead issue for nothing.
2) If the topic is sufficiently unresolved, but relatively cluttered, spammed, or otherwise a mess, make a new one. Put a large amount of detail into the new take on the matter you're bringing, so as to spark discussion on both the main issue at hand, and also on your personal take on it. In effect, you are thus creating a brand new discussion.
3) If the topic is sufficiently unresolved, not too far off the active topics list, and in reasonably good shape, gather sufficient information to provide a new, well-supported opinion, and revive the topic. By doing this, we have a clear trail of previous issues, as well as your new take to look at and respond to.

Ultimately, the mods of the forum will decide; so long as your post isn't completely pointless, most of us will let it stand. If it is spam, it will be deleted, and you should take that as a sign that the topic is quite dead and/or your reply did not properly attempt to revive it.
