From another question, 9/10 YTers don't want any repeats allowed at all.

I have just learned that if it's asked over seven days since the original question, it's not a repeat. Do you think the time period should be longer, so there aren't several threads on the same topic going at once in the questions forum? Question Who's Online | Find Members | Private Messages

Should the waiting period for making repeats in the question forum be longer than one week?

It's not bumping, it's answering. Questions go back almost seven years, and I still answer ones from that long ago while going through questions.

they're clearly not dead if you can still post in them, smart one.
I get sick of seeing the same question six times a month. Extend the waiting period.

Haha everyone does it! If you go through questions on random, you see ones from the past year. If you are profile raiding, you can see questions from as far back as 2001. If I'm posting a question, I search to make sure it isn't a repeat. If I find the question is already on the site, I comment on it to get the conversation going again since it's a topic I wanted to discuss.

I don't care because I have more important things to worry about
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 2/18/09 - 3:24:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
it should be like a month

Most of the time, I dont even notice repeats.
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 2/18/09 - 7:18:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think it should be forever.
No repeats at all.

Me too. But I'd be happy with a year.

Of course it should. I wish it was as strict as it was in the past.
