I know I'm new and shouldn't say anything for a month, but is there a way some of these could be cut?

Not sure why you "shouldn't say anything for a month" but they were stuck for a reason...

You can say anything whenever you want ;). Although that may seem like a lot of stickies, each one is useful and sticky material. I don't feel as if any of them need to be cut. Unachieveable Achievements, the Quick Game Threads, and Upcoming Games are all useful to members or guests of the site. The only one I would even think about cutting would be Video Achievement Guides, because we seem to be lacking, but I see a new trend coming :). Now if you want to see some stickies, go to the FAQ forum. That is a lot of stickies. Welcome, and keep posting!:drunk

Video Achievement Guides, but I see a new trend coming :).

Funny you mention that, because I just bought all the stuff I need to start capturing video after work today.

Funny you should mention that I mentioned that because I am currently waiting on my supplies to come in to record my Achievement Guide. How ever will I compete with Teh Party in teh Pants??

Why are you concerned that there is 11 stickies? Surely the amount dosen't affect you in anyway at all.

It's just that it keeps potentially valuable threads off of the first page and more likely to die. I'm not saying that they're all worthless, I'm just saying there's a way to go without having 11 stickies. You could certainly just create a master thread that has links to all the stickied ones that would save space while still keeping them on the first page, albeit indirectly.

If you have something you are looking for, use the search function, you'll find it. You mention keeping "valuable" threads on the first page... that's exactly what we did... by sticking them.

Pants, mind doing an NCAA 07 VAG? :p

And kind of ironic you want more room for the 'important' threads when those are, indeed, the stickies. :p

Valuable maybe wasn't the best word to convey what I wanted in your language. Substitute it with interesting.

Well, I can see where you're coming from, but the stickied threads can be interesting too:p. Also, its not like they didnt sticky those for no reason. They stickied those because they are the threads that always need to be seen, and are always having new posts on them.

Here's a suggestion. Lets make a sticky that has the links to all these "stickies." Move the current stickies to a special forum.

You know in the end, members have problems using the stickies anyway. The search function even less so. :(

Not to be a negative nancy, but as great an idea a sticky compilation forum would be, it wouldn't be utilized by the members very well.

Or not. I never thought I would see the day people would complain about Stickies! There's clutter and then there are stickies. Find a thread with more views than our stickies and maybe that one will get some recognition, otherwise I suggest dropping it.

What about merging the Quick 1000 with the quick 200s, and merging the Tough 200s with the Tough 1000s? I'm sure we'll unsticky the new improved upcoming games list. That thing is dirt old. 2006 old. I'll have to message Webb to see if I can unsticky it. Hopefully, once I get my capture card and we have people start making a lot of VGAs, then we can unsticky that thread and HOPEFULLY have a sub forum it OR something.

Meh. The Upcomers can be unstickied, but enough people don't look at the first post as it is, and merging them will be messy. I say keep those. I do like the VaG Potential Idea, though. I still think it is a pointless argument to link stickies. Really, really pointless.

I didn't mean I would use the merge function. That would suck. Instead, what I meant was move the content from one thread and put it into the other. After that, I would rename the threads.

Alright. Let's break this down, so us that aren't teh 1337 mod can get it :)

Quick 1000s and Tough 1000s becomes Quick / Tough 1000s
Quick 200s and Tough 200s becomes Quick / Tough 200s

???

Actually, I don't know the powers of mister moderat0r so I'll shut up now.
