    I’m just curious about the content more then who is creating the content.
    Earlier today there was a tweet that linked to a topic that hasn’t been posted to since 2011 that was something about a Seth Macfarlane show American Dad and a dedication that was related to September 11th at the end of an episode.

    The topic was started in 2005 and the last post was in 2011.

    Seems really random and pointless.
    That doesn’t happen on FB as much if at all.
    I replied to the tweet but no response came.


    So what’s the deal with that anyway?

    This issue has been reported to ownership, other than that, I can't answer your question.

    If something is posted on the main/portal page, it’s automatically sent to our social media pages (FB and Twitter). I can’t speak to the reasoning for why that specific thread was chosen as I don’t pick that content, but usually it has to do with SEO. Even if it hasn’t been posted to in some time, it may still be a popular thread from the perspective of search.

    So it’s analytics.

    Yeah it’s just odd for that topic to appear at the top of htf front page then on twitter and FB.

    I'm also wondering why that old thread is selected as popular.

    There seems to be a number of odd images on the front page lately. Incorrect pictures or links to old threads. Very strange that it sounds like this is left up to some automated process rather than being actively managed.
