There is no universal rule - you have to decide on case-to-case basis, really. Some topics, like the "How old are you?" poll, become out-of-date very quickly, and it makes little sense to drag such thread from the dead after a year or so. On the other hand, there are very specific subjects, most notably hint requests, where it's advisable to do a little research before creating a new one.

Always search the forums for similar topics and make a choice you feel would be more suitable according to what you find. If you really can't make up your mind, it's probably better to start a new thread, as it's way easier for moderators to merge the topics (or to lock one and ask the people to continue in another) than to split them.
