Welcome to the forum!

In general, when you post threads like this, you probably want to do a search first to see if there is already a thread on the same topic. In this case, there are already two here and here.

Hope you enjoy your time here!

This gets annoying. Just because it's been brought up before in DVDTalk's history doesn't mean the topic is retired. People's opinions change, new members come-- and your citing two cases, one is more than a year ago, and the other is 2 and a half years ago. Forums are meant for discussion, not for people who like to patronize others about "reposting" for the sake of using funny internet pictures.

Where exactly was I being patronizing? Was it when I welcomed him, gave him advice, or wished him well in the forum?

As for the "funny internet picture", that's one that I created myself, not just because I think it's funny, but because its a lot more friendly that most of the "repost" pictures that people use.

On top of that, it has nothing to do with "retiring" the topic. The idea is to continue the existing conversation. If he is looking to find out who everybody's favorite director is, what better place to start than looking in the threads where it's already been discussed?

And, finally, in regards to it being annoying, you will find that many people find it far more annoying to have thread topics repeated over and over again and many of them will let you know about it in a far less cordial way than I did.

I do agree that it gets annoying. Rather than bumping a two year old thread, so that everybody who has posted in here can post again...why not just have a new thread? A lot of people who posted in the original threads, I would assume, have seen their tastes evolve. There are also a lot of people who aren't around anymore, or who have joined since that thread's creation.

I can understand pointing somebody to the search function if they're asking, "which version of Army of Darkness is the best to own?" However, when it's a discussion of opinions, opinions that evolve...I don't see how the resurrection of a year-old thread is any better than starting a new one..

In response to the OP, here's my top-10, in alphabetical order (list discludes directors who have helmed two feature films or fewer...they're listed after the top-10).

Woody Allen
Pedro Almodóvar
Paul Thomas Anderson
Wes Anderson
Ingmar Bergman
The Coen Brothers
Sofia Coppola
David Fincher
Alejandro González Ińárritu
David Gordon Green
Alfred Hitchcock
Jean-Pierre Jeunet
Stanley Kubrick
Akira Kurosawa
Christopher Nolan
Alexander Payne
Martin Scorsese
Kevin Smith
Quentin Tarantino
Terry Zwigoff

Darren Aronofsky
Zach Braff
Vincent Gallo
Don Hertzfeldt
Richard Kelly
Sam Mendes

So then they update the thread with their new tastes or, if they're new to the forum since the thread, then they add in their thought for the first time.

I'm not sure what the people who aren't here anymore have to do with it . . .
