I received word from Big Al that I forgot to describe Similar Posts in the Universal Welcome, so here is a quick blurb about similar posts.
Similar Posts is a neat feature that the permies.com website has at the bottom of every thread. It will suggest to you similar threads to view. These threads may contain answers or solutions to problems or related content. However, these related/similar posts may not be very recent. No matter how old a post is, it is okay bump it or ask your question there. We have no bias against reviving old threads; in fact we love it! It helps to have as much information/discussion concentrated in one area. That way it is easier to find the collection of knowledge that people have brought to the site.
