I feel quite awkward writing a post about another post, but anyways, please submit your vote on the topic of making my thread, Cichlid(and other fish) Guessing Game!!!, stickied!!! It can be found close to this thread in this forum... Thanx.
Mods, Please(and don't lock this and tell me that i ought not to make this a thread!)
: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!
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.
I agree with too many stickys at the top of the page I'd say maybe 1-3 but all of them should be comprehensive and well organized. I've seen the other sites as well where you need to scroll through 8 sticky's before you see 1 new post.
Hmmm. Interesting comments, but none i can aree with if they said no . Plus- there aren't ANY stickies in the general aquaria discussion area- are there
I'll be given up if you continue pesterin' me, BUT NOT FOR LONG!!!(Like ten minutes :lol: )
