I often see people try to make a come back with an old database. In most of the cases, this belongs to a successful forum owned by the same user. They will spin some noble reason for shutting it down and try to put everything back into a big and busy forum.

Do you think this is possible ?

I feel that once a forum is closed and brought back users loose confident in the site and they will hesitate to join in again.

I agree. It is no easy job. Not impossible either. It will involve a lot of hard work and PR. And still no guarantee that it will work.

Most of them won't take off. Mainly because it is complicated and when you bring people to a graveyard, they won't enjoy it much. Old news, old discussions, who would want to take that for timepass ?

@admin great points. Having said that, reusing old content is fine as long as it's still relevant. If you're try to peddle news that happened last year, then that's a different story.
