Please refrain from answering to posts that were published 2-4 years back.
Over the years, we have warned several users for the same, and it seems like we haven't made ourselves clear enough. All posts that are categorized under "Old" archive are to be left alone.
If anyone answers any posts that comes under this category, Moderators are advised to hide it immediately to avoid other users responding.
This is to avoid,
a) old posts coming up in the Homepage, which makes the site look outdated.
b) old content getting indexed again, leading to site become slower and buggy.
Suggestion on what you can instead:
- You can certainly use the "Related Question" feature, to ask questions relating to the old post.
- Use Screenshots of old posts that you want to refer to and make a new post to carry on the discussion.
Hope y'all understand,
