    The great sticky massacre of 2011
    Can you please initiate a cognitive effort to clean up / consolidate the stickies and ask forum owners to as well?

    Please!!!

    I hate stickies and almost never allow them on my forum. They almost immediately get banner blindness syndrome. You may think I'm crazy but I've found that the quickest way to slow down the reading of a topic is sticky it. You get more people reading a topic if you lock it.

    Are you sure?

    Here's a good example from the Midnight Cafe' forum...

    Maybe they can stick all those stickies after the Three to Five new posts?

    Good idea. A private forum but an opt in private forum with a minimum of 50 posts, and a personal recommendation from affiliates that have been here longer than 2 years that have a minimum of 1000 posts and a cool nickname.

    Trust, we had something like that before. You wouldn't remember, though, because the admin freaked and had a hysterical hissyfit when we tried to vote you in.

    Y'all didn't vote me in Are you talking about some private forum, way back in the day, like my first or second year? I remember something like that. I used to post at a lot of different forums, like I always have. Mike's now closed forum, BluesX forum etc. I just like good affiliate marketing conversation, wherever it is.
