It's depending on each situation if it makes sense to create new topics. If you have a thread that was well visited in the past a bump is still possible and nothing bad.
In this case I would prefer no bump, it's way too old although the mod is still available. Basically if the OP (Original Poster) isn't active anymore I would never bump anything.
Yeah, if the author is gone and the topic is dead, then I would think about creating a new topic. This is mostly the case with very old topics.
