    Too Many Darn Stickies
    Anyone else find the huge number of stickied threads in Midnight Cafe a bit annoying? Even on a 24" monitor, they take up the entire screen - It's a bit overkill to say the least.

    Some rules should be stickied (maybe as a mass thread), but others (as an affiliate I love..., acquisition announcement, new admin, as an affiliate I hate, jumping to conclusions, twitter thread, copyright warning (seriously, this has to be a written warning?)) have no reason to be a sticky. And the twitter thread can be rolled up into an actual list on Twitter, now.

    Some of those can probably be moved to other subforums, will look at that next week. And a couple might be able to be rolled together as you said.

    Joshua, the idea of a twitter list of ABW users is brilliant. I'd follow that list...

    That, of course, begs the question, who is going to maintain the list and how do the new peeps go about getting added to the list... But in concept... brilliant.

    I think all forms of electronic communications (Forums, Twitter, Facebook, Email, IM, etc...) should have a built-in sarcasm font. I would then set it as my default.

    Oooh, if I could remember who tried to do it I'd post a link... I remember seeing a story recently about a company that is trying to create a punctuation mark specifically for denoting sarcasm. It's like a little squiggle with a dot in the center. It will, of course, fail miserably because changes in the fundamentals of a language don't happen at the whim of a corporation, but there you go.
