    As this is the second time I am requesting this I thought I'd bring up the point more generally, is it possible to change the permissions on classic threads so you can continue to post in them once they have become 'classic'?

    I was going to bump a thread from last year 'The things that keep newbies awake at night thread' (http://www.redcafe.net/f15/things-keep-newbies-awake-night-thread-334707/) where a poster scared himself to death, tore his bedroom apart because a spider got underneath his bed and resorted to posting photos from his bedroom floor covered in malteasers he had thrown at the spider. As I have seen a few big spiders recently I thought it was a good time to bring that thead back to life.

    I can understand it but not sure whether threads in the Classic should be allowed to be posted in again, especially for something like the case you're suggesting. That was a great thread at the time and posting in it again may take some of the shine off it. Same with the other threads there.

    I only got promoted a few days ago. My dream was to bump "get your table out for the lads". Our probable loss of the league has sort of ruined it.

    I first saw it in the general though it looks as if it began life in the newbie forums judging on the random posters commenting in it.

    It used to be in the Newbie General but it was brought up a few months ago.

    Brian can't you post it in one of the countless other Spider Threads on this forum?

    I was only going to post it to mock the OP of the thread in question as opposed to talking about spiders.

    I am not particularly concerned about making such a post though, I am more interested in whether it is possible to post in any classic thread once they become classic.
