:lol: I voted yes because it's a good game, it gets you really looking at all types of fish that you normally wouldn't, it's a good way of breaking the ice for a newbie on the forums. Anyone can take part and well, it's fun!

Here is a good answer on why I say no.

In my opinion the only reason you sticky a thread is in order to make your forum better. Now the key thing is that the fewer the skickies the better. IE I don't want to have to scroll down 4-5 threads just so I can see something new that I am actually interested in. If I had my way each forum would have at most 1 sticky which was in essence a guide to all the important threads in that section, ie common questions and answers and where other guides are and so on. And that thread should be locked and only have 1 concise well organized post. (That looks nice to if possible.)

That means that threads like yours which while entertaining have no reason to be stickied. I mean what exactly is the reason that you feel your thread should be anyways? (I am not trying to be harsh this is just my personally reasons why I don't believe the thread should be stickied. I also wonder at how many different people are actually posting in that thread, ie is it a good representation such that most of all the users in this section actually continue to go to that thread.)

Again I do think you have a good thread, I just don't see a reason why it should be stickied. (I have been forums where almost every good thread was stickied and it became such a pain that in order to see any new threads one had to scroll down.) Now when I modded I fully encouraged people to write up organization threads and I would stick that one and unstick 3-4 others. Anyways you now know my opinion on the matter.

Makes a very good point, in fact that's the exact reason I'm not trying to get my Bolivian Ram Sexing Guide stickied anymore.

It is annoying yes, but, the quote in my signature is pretty relevant here....

Perhaps a better solution then would be for everyone who enjoys/supports that thread to put a link to it in their sig!

I voted no also. But don't worry about it. Good threads have a way of popping back up every once in a while. :thumb:
