Sticky topics: Why?

Post by FoxHound » Thu Feb 12, 2009 11:47 am

Why are all the Sticky topics out-dated (and in some cases no longer relevant)? Seems they just take up space. I was about to reply to one, but I noticed the last post was a year and a half old. Not exactly a lively conversation.

Oh, alright then. I guess I never looked at it that way.

Seriously, though, wouldn't it make more sense to have very general topics? Rather than a year-old, unrelated bantering between two people on the 'different kinds of tobacco' sticky, wouldn't it be more beneficial to have a large, ongoing discussion? Or at least something more substantive?

And rather than having a sticky exclusively for the Professor's pipe sweetener, wouldn't it make more sense to have a sticky for pipe cleaning in all shapes and forms (sweetener, s/a method, retort, refinishing, polishing bits, etc)?

The political sticky on the Library forum is perhaps the least relevant. It just makes no sense to me to leave that stuff up - and in a permanent 'top spot!'

Some posts were requested to be stickied, so we obliged.

If folks want to take the time to put together an edited super-post, we created the Library for this. We will moderate threads there to keep them on topic.

I did take one sticky down yesterday that I noticed was past its prime, but didn't go looking for others. You may suggest specific posts you'd like to see destickied, otherwise I'll add it to the list of things to look in to when I find time.

Been here a whole nine days, and already offering "constructive criticism." Must be an OPCer or a seminarian - or both! ;)
