imagine a thread which the last activity was at 2012.
We are currently at 2016
That thread stopped it activity naturally at 2012, meaning that it died there.
A necrobump is when you post at that dead thread, bringing it to the front page of the section (that dead thread would be very hidden away in the last pages)(against the rules of gbatemp :P )

its when you go to a graveyard (1xx page in forum) find a dead body (unused thread that no one uses from said form page) and bump it back to life (revive said thread), the body will be a zombie probably causing trouble (thread would be outdated and there is better information elsewhere but people will tart to believe it is useful) and people will begin to be infected to be a zombie (other people will think it would be ok to bump old threads).

Wow. Great analogy there.

WTF DOES IT MEAN? I am at a complete loss here on it.
@Feeling it! maybe you should request a lock on this for a few years? lol
i will write in this thread in 2020 if i still hang out here, or if gbatemp admins don't get bored paying the servers for all the shit EOF and "i found a crash, someone hack this game device" threads
probably you will be inactive, dead or worse (have a girfriend maybe)..
but i am gonna try to necro bump this, i will bring back this thread that had no answers for 4 years, even if it's no longuer relevant.
for science and teaching you fellow tember what is necro bumping

ps: if you get the girfriend, i hope you realize in 2020 that gbatemp is your best girfriend.

You mean necrophelia?
philia/phile usually means love of something and is in the head, actually acting on it on the other hand...

I just realized a mod shitposted in the EOF.
Wtf :wtf:
If shitposting means wordplay now then it might be more tolerable. That is seemingly not the case though.

EOF so song


Edit. Got a better song
