I didn't see if you've already answered this, but it states in rules that you shouldn't (and probably can't) post for old features, articles, etc.

Seriously, the main reason I registered was cuz the heading said posts old and new, and for the first time in years, I read an article that kinda got me heated and was looking forward to ranting about contradiction.

I also notice every thread seems to start with a generated comment to jump-start the discussion on the subject, so I felt discouraged from just starting a post with the name of the submission - is it ok to do so or am I correct in my assumption that no front page = no more words on the issue?

the article posts are largely exempt from the "don't reply to old posts" rule

Yeah, if it's in the articles forum, you can reply to anything in there, no matter how old. I encourage it, because it sometimes introduces other people to an old article they never even knew about.

So that definitely doesn't count as thread-bumping. Sorry if that wasn't clear.

Post away and welcome to the forums

you have to reply to an existing article thread if you want to rant about it

You could start a thread in General Blabber or Gaming or any of the others.

Correct. The article topics forum doesn't allow you to start new threads, so you'd need to start it up on General Blabber or something else if it's not a topic that already exists in the article topics forum.

hm... i know a lot are old and all, but I still kinda feel slighted clicking a link urging me to "discuss this in our forums!" or "view photoshop submissions here!" only to meet with the dreaded message claiming it doesn't exist. Frankly, I'd probably feel like a chooch now if I decided to post a far overdue rant or comment/s on something of which the novelty has worn off for pretty much everyone else. For all I know, this crap coulda already been addressed months, even years ago.

How 'bout you tell us what article it's in response to for starters, then I can tell you if there is/was a thread for it somewhere. We revamped the site a few years ago so all new articles would automatically generate discussion threads, but there are lots of old articles that don't have them so they were usually manually created in another forum back in the day.

largely off topic but the word "chooch" to me sounds like someone trying to be racist against anthropomorphic trains

Can we make fun of people in the questions and suggestions or is that only ok in the other parts of the forums?

wtf is it with the impatience? That's like the second time someone's rubbed their palms together expecting a written equivalent of a Springer brawl in an article and response.

DEAR I-MOCKERY:
I OBJECT TO YOUR CONSTANT INSISTANCE THAT YOU HAVE A PICKLE HAT. IT IS QUITE OBVIOUSLY GREEN PAPER AND I HAVE NO IDEA HOW IT IS SUPPOSED TO "REPRESENT" A "PICKLE". MAYBE I'M LOOKING AT IT WRONG. BUT I'M NOT. FOR ALL I NOW, IT ISN'T EVEN PAPER. BUT IT DEFINITELY ISN'T A PICKLE. IT DOES NOT VOER THE TOP OF YOUR HEAD, SO I DON'T PERSONALLY DEFINE IT AS A "HAT". IT IS A HEADGEAR. I AM NOT PLEASED. I FEEL THAT HONESTY IS IMPORTANT. YOU SHOULD HAVE A BASEBALL CAP. WITH A PICKLE ON IT. THAT WOULD BE A PICKLE HAT. SHAME ON YOU.

SINCERELY, GRISLY GUS

PS. I HOPE THAT YOU DON'T THINK I'M BEING PRESUMPTUOUS. I VALUE TRUTH IN MEDIA.[\QUOTE]
