@Madmick merged a thread about Trump receiving a diversity medal in 1986 into his megathread on the Charlottesville attacks. The thread didnt include anything related to the Charlottesville attacks, but his justification for merging it was that the event happened in 1986 and isnt a current event. This is the first I'm seeing about this current event rule. I checked the War Room rules, and they dont mention anything about that. So can someone clarify if it I'm reading his post correctly? Is it against the rules to start threads about historical events, and if so, what is the cut off time? And secondly, his warning to stay on topic is confusing to me, since I would think Trump receiving a medal 30 years ago is unrelated to the Charlottesville attacks, and hence posting it in Micks thread would be off topic. I'm not trying to shitpost here, I'm legitmately confused on when a thread should be its own thread, and when posting something in another thread is sufficiently off topic.
