Too many stickied posts

20 replies 257 views Edited May 13, 2013

I get the idea behind stickies, but when there are so many that a user has to scroll through a whole page of them to get to new posts, there are too many. Good threads will stay at the top naturally.  Half of these stickied threads only offer benefit for a very short while.

 

I don't get why we need 17 sticky threads....it's just too much.

relax, I have an opinion too. Smiley Happy

 

Even if they change often, how many forums do you see with 15+ stickies? If everything is important, nothing is.

Oh no no, we can't do without those poll threads, even though they're conveniently hyperlinked right below the polls themselves off on the right. And dear god, what chaos would ensue without all those Home Guide threads, its not like those could NEVER be combined into one thread, not at all. Oh and we definitely need the stickied thread about a community event from almost a week ago, there's no way we all can't live in harmony without old news being stickied, no sir.

You see the current important info, almost on a weekly basis they are changed, and it's almost routine what you see there. As for multi stickied forums I run into it all the time. DCUO forums, the old sim forums, you'd find items that weren't even considered current info stickied, at least it's current, and/or relevant to what is going on in home during the current week and/or month.

OMG. Someone finally said it! LOL I think that every time I come here!! For me, putting something up as a sticky means I'll definitely overlook it. haha First thing I do is blindly scroll past all that! It's automatic for me now. Smiley Tongue

Me too. I'm here for entertainment mostly... Stickied stuff is not amusing so I scroll past it always.

i like your sarcasm.

 

Oh, and goodness forbid they get rid of the four out of six stickies at the top of the list that would float to the top naturally.

 

 

I'm not saying they are not important. They will go to the top when updated anyway though. No need to sticky them.

Almost half of them shouldn't be up there. It's annoying. But hey, what ever floats their boat.

Try viewing the Home forums on mobile. It's a scrolling nightmare. Smiley Indifferent
