Please, no more stickies that involve only a handful of people. It looks like you guys had a great time, but I'm a little tired of it always being there.

Could we start a third forum here called "Announcements" for these sticky things?

Here, here.

For those of us who view the forum with threads expanded (meaning that when you load a page of threads, you see all of the replies listed as links), when we load the main page, we have to scroll down and down and down and down and down to get to the first new non-sticky thread. It's a PITA.

....or they could just Post Updates and link it back to the original thread;

:MacResource NYC Lunch - Sunday, May 21

and when new info is posted call the thread:

:UPDATE: MacResource NYC Lunch - Sunday, May 21

and link it back to the original or just post it in the new thread,

People could just search (by date) for :MacResource NYC Lunch and see all the info they need.

I didn't really mind the Sticky, I just ignore them after a while.

That might work, but then again it could lead to:


Shopping & Deals
Mac Talk
PC Talk
Electronics & Other Toys
Friendly Talk
one forum archive
two forum archive

. . .something as minor as a sticky doesn't bother me. . .

Point VERY WELL taken Panopticon. Forgot about that episode of life.

can't they just change the code so that the stickies aren't expanded? It couldn't be that hard.

And the land of the never ending stickies is more than annoying

Well, ya know . . . I just had to show up on this thread. It takes 20 page clicks to get to the first post when viewing in the expanded mode.

I DEFINITELY vote to remove, or relocate said stickies. It ain't (sic) like they are an artform or anything . . . grinning smiley

Then don't use expanded view when there's a 5-page long Sticky thread present. Then you get to see the most recent 50 threads. This isn't rocket science people. There are more important to complain about in this world besides Sticky Threads in a forum. Isn't there some miniscule genocide going on in some tiny place called Sudan?
