Yeah, just check the date of the original post. There've been people posting, like, "Girl, if I were you, I would leave that guy..." And the mods are like, dude, that post is like ten years old. lol
But definitely post on an old thread, why not. And if there is some locked thread, and you reeeeeaally just have to post on it, let one of us know and we could unlock it. I forgot the reason older threads get locked (I know it's a housekeeping thing, but I can't remember what that is exactly), but the owner, Star Witch, is not absolute about it, though she does like the really old threads locked for the most part.
Haha haha oh man that's kinda funny. The post I was actually checking out was from this time last year I believe, and more open ended than asking for advice. If I remember correctly it was more of a sharing type topic where The op asked about other people's experiences telling friends/family/so about your beliefs, and how they handled it. I noticed that most of the people I've seen on the forums didn't partake in that discussion, and it's a topic that interests me and plays a huge part in all of our lives I think.
But I wouldn't put it past myself to try offering someone love advice they needed five years ago after I've had a long day. Sometimes I just skip over the details lol. But thanks for sharing about unlocking older posts too, that's useful to know, since I've found myself several years back in my random searches.
