    Too many stickies?

    There seems to be sticky overload here. What do you guys think?

    I'm new here, but am very used to vBulletin from another forum I am a member at....so I probably feel a little more familiar (forgive me).

    Agreed!!

    I like them, it's nice when you can go right to what you're looking for.

    None of us can promise when it will be fixed, but we can promise that it will be fixed

    Too many … IMO yes; takes-up half of the DL discussion page.

    I don't pay much attention to the stickies. I click on "new posts" when I log in and use the search engine when I am looking for something.

    Could the 'new posts' be reset to not empty so quickly....maybe empty every 24 hours?

    Someday the stickies will have their own little home but for now we just have to scroll past them. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    You should make this poll a sticky so that everyone will see it. ;)

    What is not being understood is that people who just drop by are the ones using the stickies. If you’re a registered user you might use the search function or just not look at the stickies anymore, but others do use them. Just look at their total views to determine if they are being utilized or not.

    On purpose? And, isn't the total views calculated before it becomes a sticky? For instance, I write something brilliant and a zillion people view it- gosh darn it, let's make it a sticky! I think it enters into stickyhood with those views already counted. For fun, lets reset the total view values in each existing sticky.
