  Old  receiving an infraction from a newbies point of view

Hello all. I have been a member of this site for just a few short days. On Sunday I received an infraction for bumping an OLD thread which I did not realize was against site rules and I did of take note of the date.

May I suggest that if there is a time limit for threads becoming out of date for posting, that the date flashes in red, that will make it easily identifiable for new members to see.
I know people will say I should have read the rules, but lets be totally honest here how many new members read the rules thoroughly before starting to post?
If my experience is anything to go by I am just keen to explore the site and try to get some great information.

Don't sweat it. This place is run like medieval times. Dare to bump a topic, post a viewpoint staff disagree with or post off-topic and you will be censored and prosecuted.

You bumped a ten month old marketplace thread with your contact info, I deleted it and infracted the post like I'd do for anyone else. Since it was an accident I'll reverse the infraction but the post is staying deleted.

domino, I have very little to add to what Village Genius mentioned. This is exactly what I would have done myself. However, point taken and as I can see, Village Genius have reversed the infraction.

@Dan, I am not even going to get into this with you. This is silly.
