Bingo. The recommended solution is to create a new thread and link the old one.

To expand a bit, old threads that havn't had any replies for a certain period of time (the exact time is forum-dependant, but is usually roughly a month I believe) are 'retired', to prevent people bringing up old threads constantly.

You can either contact a moderator and ask them nicely to reopen the thread in question for you, or alternately start a new thread linking to the old one.

thanks

resonable enough. But you should get a notification when you try to do it:

"Bozo, this thread is to old, therefor it is retired"

Would help users understand whats happening...
