If you're not interested in a thread don't read it, and if the majority of people aren't interested in it, the thread will drop down out of sight fairly quickly, as is the nature of a message board.
I cant even find the other thread and Im familiar with the site.
In my view this is wholly different to barging in, ignoring existing discussions and slapping your thread up for everyone to see, "just because I can".
Not saying that this was the OP's intention - just answering the question "why".
For instance, I don't even bother with the discussion on the price of discontinued sets as there are 26k comments, alot of which are discussions between individuals and little in jokes. A new post on a topic every now and then can keep things fresh.
Own: #79003 An Unexpected Gathering
Want: #497 Galaxy Explorer
Ok I'm a bit OCD, but isn't it nice to have information/opinions/discussion on one particular topic in a single thread? So much easier to navigate and find information.
(Though for multiple page threads there is one functionality that appears to be missing on brickset - either to display thread in print mode in full (so that you can use Ctrl-F), or "search within the thread" button...)
Want: SDCC Ultron's Throne
I shall contribute my list here though:
Own: #10227 B-Wing Starfighter (I know it's not a highly loved set but I really did enjoy building it and love the look of it, now if we could just get a UCS A-Wing) or #10217 Diagon Alley (which was such an enjoyable build)
Want: #10179 UCS Millennium Falcon (Probably will never happen, but I intend to try to get one at some point in my life.)
In response to the original question, I don't think I could pick one single set for either...there are far too many!
As of late it's mainly Lego forums. Prior to that it was generally console specific computer gaming ones.
it's often an issue with over moderated forums, the mods feel the need to respond to any thread revival by moaning at whoever revived it, tbh those forums should just script an auto close for threads
I am totally in LOVE with my elves sets at the moment. The hidden compartments etc have me chomping at the bit to get the next one.
@Shib @vorpalRyu The one thing I have noticed here is that the one big no no on most other forums, going off topic isn't a strict no no! And that is what I love about being here. The interesting side notes that happen and then the topic continues on anyway. <3
Want: #3450 Statue of Liberty
own : 8078 Portal of Atlantis
want : 70810 MetalBeard's Sea Cow
Want: Turg the Licker
Want - Mercedes Benz Arocs 3245
want green grocer
Also, it pretty much is a lose-lose. Some people will complain because you brought up an old topic, others will complain because you started a new one.
If you want my personal opinion, I kind of feel like all I've learned from this topic is to not post a topic unless you spend 5 days making sure this wasn't a topic within the last 5 years. Even then, you might want to make sure it isn't 6 years old just to be safe.
Own: 10179 UCS Falcon
Want (right now, sight unseen): Upcoming UCS Hoth Base
Want: Imperial Trading Post
Want: UCS Millennium Falcon, of course :)
The 4431 ambulance and the Technic Rescue Helicopter are some of the favorite sets of recent years. An iconic set of my early childhood would be the Shell promo police Jeep, one of the first Lego sets I owned.
Really Want: #10238 Minas Tirith
Want: #10248 Roller Coaster
