Threads at the top!

I think stickies should be banned...

sorry but I do!

The whole of idea of one thread deemed important enough to be at the top of the page is kind of elitist.

Sure it makes it easier to find but really, how hard is it to look for something?

Sorry if this offends those that have made stickies, no offence taken, I just wonder why it's so necessary?

What do you mean?  Have I missed something?

Wilkie the threads at the top of tri have 'stickies!' as in someone has asked RW to make them stay at the top, hence the certificate looking symbol that makes them special.

They will remain there until requested that they loose their stickiness and then they will fall down the list unless someone posts on them.

Oh, I see. 

So why don't people just put a bookmark on the threads that they are following?  Swat I do!

I agree with you AL, there isnt really any justification, we've managed perfectly fine for years without them.

If the threads important enough it will stay at the top on its own.  If its not important and so deemed to need to be sticky its just getting in the way. 

Natural selection.

Runners World please remove the stickies.

If we had a spitroast thread, that'd be quite sticky

got to agree with you on this one AL......if you want to keep it on the top then post on it

I can't see what the problem is - if you don't like what they're about, they're easy enough to ignore....

many fora use stickies - they have their uses

Want to place a bet on who emails Catherine to get this stickied?

when i see it at the top I keep thinking that there is something new on there only to see no-one has posted for days............

But you can look at the date and see when the last post was?

FB, or those in support of stickies please tell me why they are deserved in the place? What's their justification?
12/11/2009 at 17:15
I didn't say the have any justification AL, or am supporting them - I just don't see a problem with them!

12/11/2009 at 17:17
But soon there could be LOADS of stickies.... what's to stop everyone asking for them??

I just find them annoying! But yeah, each to their own I guess!

Don't completely agree with that FB. When I first joined another forum that allows stickies, there was 25 of the suckers. Some of the threads hadn't been posted on for months. Now there's four.

If people request something to be stickied i.e the Manchester social, someone should request the thread to be unstickied after the event. We know RW don't have much time to maintain the forums now so expecting they will unsticky threads at the appropriate time isn't going to work.

Just another thing though... on this tri section we have one sticky for a social and another a for training thread.

But there are LOADS of threads about training and loads about socials!!!

Am I the only one that sees this??

Arghhh ignore me, I'm just having a moan about it! It's not really a problem just annoying!

LN - we're in the very early days of stickies on here but can understand your point as some other forums I go on are covered with the things. let's see what happens eh?
