I am considering reposting a question that has gone "stale" -- that is, it is no longer new and therefore not garnering any attention. It also has content that is no longer relevant: it was a jQuery question before and now it is a Regex question, and it should indicate this new category.
What will happen if I do? Would I be banned for that? If not, is there a protocol to follow, to ensure it is not seen as a duplicate or otherwise unwanted?
