    too many stickies

    I don't really want to get rid of them, they are all very valid and important stickies, I just wish there was a means of consolidating them, put them in a clickable news ticker format or something. I mean I have to scroll halfway down the page to get to the new posts.

    Bigdawg, go into the General Topics forum, from the forum list. The top threads are all "sticky", meaning they'll always be on top of the list in that forum.

    How about a "sticky" section, where you can put all of those items in there.

    In General Topics there are way too many stickies.

    First off, we have 2 Jenna threads stickied. Why?

    Then we have a sticky for Star- who is a banned member. Why?

    I also think some of the stickies that should be un-stickied are the T-shirt thread and the Police Beat article thread. Not that these didn't need to be stickied at one time, but they are past their prime.

    Agreed. I know some of them are important, but I hate scrolling down so much just to get to the newer topics/posts. There are way too many, please clean them up!

    I never really notice them unless they get bumped up, because I just click on 'new posts' rather than go to individual sections. There are a lot, though.

    I agree with the consensus thus far. Stickies are good, but they can take up a lot of space at the top and can be overlooked.

    I know there are some vbulletin addons that could clean things up a bit in terms of giving them a page of their own, so to speak. Not my site though.

    I've unstickied three threads from the General Topics section. Since General Topics is our most popular section in the public area, it will have the most stickies.

    If scrolling the page is that big of a deal, I recommend using the "new posts" section for now. I will look for a solution meanwhile.

    I've fixed the sticky problem. If you have a question about something, try FAQ. If you can't find it there, PM a Site Moderator.
