Used to be annoyed by reminder "If you post on this thread remember it is XXmonths YY days since the last post" or words to that effect when pushing the "post a reply" radio button, though the date is from thread creation and not really last post. I was concerned that this was a warning about rules infraction against "necroposting" (there are places where it is allowed??) but for long running series like MHA it was non-sequitur. However I just discovered when I viewed the Talkback thread for Celestial Method which I just viewed for the first time (but 2014 legit last post) that the reminder didn't come up and I tried to post and was able without getting the message (I aborted posting actually). I tried the talkback thread for the 2014 Fall Preview article and again, no reminder. Just thought someone should know as it might be a bug or oversight from recent revisions. Since a poster in the aforementioned thread actually mentioned revisiting the series in 5 years and wondering if they would still like it, I almost want to post a reply since it has been 5 years since that I think it's still great! (Pointless I know...)

That reminder only shows up when you follow the talkback link from the article in question. I just tried it following the talkback link from a 3-year old interview, and the message was there at the top of the screen.

I think this is the way it always behaved ?
