    I'm aware that "necromancy" of old threads that have gotten no replies for months or years is against forum rules, but I've heard that you can bump up your own threads that you created. Is this true? Am I allowed to bump any thread that I ever created at any time, even if a very long amount of time has passed?

    Probably depends what you are writing. But absolutely not way that you just bumb old thread saying "bumb" or something such without any real content.

    If you just post "bump" the resident Ursine might become very cross.

    But you can absolutely add to any T/L you started.

    So as long as I make a genuine effort to continue the discussion (i.e. not a low-effort post), I can revive my own threads after any length of time has passed? Even if it's just to quote and reply to an earlier post?

    I have another question here: Am I - on my own thread - allowed to announce progress (e.g. "I will update this/add a wikibox/continue this"), or could such a thread be locked?

    Better to actually DO it, because intentions might not happen, or not when you expect them too
