I made a post in this thread about 5 minutes ago

http://forums.penny-arcade.com/discussion/172540/epeen-thread/p1

and the post did not move the thread up the chain, and at time of this posting, the "Most Recent" post still dates as Jan 23


just thought I'd mention it. seems like a rare occurrence

    It means that new posts do not bump the thread,

    Out of curiosity, why wouldn't y'all just lock the thread then?

    It's mostly used in the hub so a comic or PATV thread doesn't stay up indefinitely and prevent new content from being seen.

    Sometimes a mod may sink a thread that is going south but has not proven terrible enough to lock outright. It doesn't happen often.

    In addition, it can be useful for allowing a discussion to continue between people already involved in the discussion without inviting issues by having it continue to show up on the front page and getting new people involved in the discussion. Good for stuff that's borderline off-topic but not otherwise breaking the rules.

    FYI, this happens to every thread I make in SE++, but only there. Maybe a mod hates me.

    I'm not explicitly saying it was Geth.

    Why would Geth do that?

    Geth doesn't like you.

    I guess that explains the harassing messages in the lower left. Cute.

    As far as I can tell only one of your threads has been sunk. It doesn't seem like there's a pattern at work.

    It happened with the SMT IV thread, the SRT thread, and the last one I made, so yeah, it kind of seems like it.

    that's your most recent SE++ thread. It is not sunk, it just has no posts.

    Well, they weren't initially. The SMT IV one got fixed after I posted about it here. And the newest one did get one post, then didn't get bumped.

    No, it didn't. It wasn't sunk. You've had one thread sunk, which I unsunk when you PM'd me. You said "all of my threads in SE get sunk". That would be very serious, so I chased it up. You are incorrect sir, your threads have not been sunk. I don't know how much more clear I can be about this. I have checked three times.

    I'll take your word for it, then. Thanks.
