Too many sticky threads

Postby mrchad9 » Tue Dec 07, 2010 3:52 am

Seems like we can unstick some of these threads by now. There are so many most users overlook them.

There are two on GPX features, one in General and one in Site Feedback. Perhaps we can unstick the General one, or combine it with the Site Feedback one now?

In General, 'Private messages older than 1 year will be deleted daily' seems unneeded there now. Maybe unstick it, and if needed put a comment somewhere on the PM inbox/outbox screens? It would be more useful there.

'Can't Post in the Forums' in Site Feedback. I don't think folks read that one anymore. That one may be debatable though.

There are two threads on rules in Off-Route. Do we need them both? Maybe combine them instead.

Anyway. Not trying to take a strong position. Just a suggestion.

Perhaps this thread could be made into a sticky thread on the elves' screens to remind them not to make too many sticky threads?

It's ok now. I took a shower and not as sticky anymore. Just a little wet.

These actually aren't bad ideas. Since I admittedly have an issue with clutter, I definitely see the point. I'll get around to merging the OR threads today or tomorrow, I hope.

It's Matt's call, of course, to pull the stickies he placed, but I'll think about the "Can't Post" one. We do still get a lot of questions about that subject, and it's easier to find that thread and send a link to it than explaining what's there, but I suppose bookmarking it will make finding it just as easy for me.

That's the only reason why I mentioned the Can't Post one. It didn't appear that it was effective in terms of folks actually noticing it.
