Don't take this the wrong way, but...

I'm all for stickies for important information; even for a reminder of an upcoming gathering. But I can only imagine a time when there are 10 "gatherings" stickied atop the first page of the forum.

Why not approach this as was done with the DMP over at dealmac? A gathering occurs (or mini arrives) somewhere, someone posts some comments along with the link, and it's a done deal. Or better yet, the MRF Gathering page exists off site, and if you're interested in the thread and/or the site, bookmark it and return as often as you want. Everyone will know about the most recent gathering, just as they kept up with mini-leader's adventures.

Just a thought, but it seems fairly simple to me.

As long as you don't cross the streams. NEVER cross the streams.



It is what it is.

maybe the admins could set up another forum along with the two existing forums for "announcements". they could still setup another page somewhere to link to photos and other info.

just a thought.

I had to give up my preferred way to read the forum, threaded view, ages ago due to the loooooooooong stickies. It's nice that people want to get together and all that, but I agree that a third forum, concentrating on gatherings and other such announcements, might be a way around a big potential irritant.

The people organizing a get-together can put a link in their sigs: Mob Town MR Luncheon, 12th of Never -- click HERE for more! for example. No jumping emoticons, s'il vous plaît.

Yeah, & set up a forum for PC discussion, one for general discussion, etc. Oh wait, that's already been done & the vast majority HATED it.

Well then, don't call it another forum, just call it a "web space". Happy?

Sadly, I just "switched my view". I'm no longer viewing the threads expanded and it's solely due to the idiotic sticky issue.

[Edit] Yes, I realize there's a "crisis in Sudan", and many other more significant problems in the world, so don't feel as though you have to remind me. I just felt like venting. I don't think the people who defend the stickies (for the most part) ever view the forum in expanded thread mode. If they did, they'd not only understand the issue, but would probably want to have the stickies changed in some way.

I suggested a divider line of some sort.

And there is a way to do it. Dealmac can do it. The Stickies remain NOT expanded no matter which way you view the Dealmac forum. So it can be done.

by the way, I didn't mean to make it sound like this is a petty issue or that people shouldn't give their opinions.


I was just stating for me. . .everyone has the right to voice their opinion.


Just clearing things up.

I guess I'll reiterate MHO- the stickies don't bother me at all but animated emoticons in subject lines (sticky or not) drive me absolutely bonkers. I find them as annoying as websites that are loaded with music or sound effects with no way to switch them off.

I view the threads collapsed so the scrolling to find new threads issue isn't a problem for me but I can sure see how it would be incredibly annoying for those who choose the other view!

like I said previously, change the code so that stickie threads are not expanded, no matter how they are viewed...

Having all those stickies as you first enter gives one the same impression as seeing a beautiful blonde from behind, who then turns around and has green teeth....
