Maybe this will work, or maybe it wont, but I figure its worth a shot and maybe a mod will sticky this. That way theres more topics under the General Board instead of 6 stickies. If my idea gets shot down its okay, but I figure its worth a shot. :-) Anyway...

Introductions. New years introduce yourselves here!

Actually I think the number of threads in the front page is not affected by the number of stickies, if more stickies are added, the section just gets bigger.

Eh, I have no idea. I figured it was worth a shot... takes up less space. I see it at other places. *shrugs* You're the mod!

I guess it could work, I don't like having 30 something stickies on the forums. Let me discuss that with the other mods and I'll get back at you.

I'm for no stickies at all.

Survival of the fittest threads.

or jsut put all the mo%^#$ fu#*^$% stickies up top and reduce font and format it so it takes up little space. Like booksmarks toolbar on ff.

God i love finding new things to complain about that will never get done, for example, "forum games & quizzes".

^ hahaha

I guess we could take off this one:
How did you learn about Crunchyroll?
and I don't see why this must be stickied:
Post Pictures Of Yourself

I already told shinji about the games and quizzes, but I guess he has not checked my PM yet.

I don't know...I think this is kind of a stupid thing to be complaining about with all of the other problems on the site.

So what if there are some stickies? Most of those threads are popular threads. The point of a sticky is to make it less likely for someone to duplicate a thread/these threads. If you unsticky them/make this new thread, chances are is that there is going to be more duplicates. I think people are just impatient if they will not ignore a couple of stickies. >_>

I think some of the threads can be combined. For instance, the 'How did you learn about Crunchyroll?' thread and the 'Introductions - new users, introduce yourselves here!' thread could be combined.

The 'FAQ's a newbie must read!' thread, 'Attention Uploaders!' thread, 'Why your video was not approved' thread, 'All about Uploading' thread, and 'Subbing help please!!!' can all be combined after I finish the FAQ.

The 'Anime Duplicates/Wrong Tags/Corrupt Videos' thread and 'Games, Music, Drama Duplicates/Wrong Tags/Corrupt Videos' thread can also be combined.

I agree with red; it's important to have the stickied topics easily visible ^-^. It makes them obvious to new users as to what to read first. Admittedly they don't always notice the stickies but i do see many posts like 'ok' or 'thanks, i'm new here' on them.
Although; now we have forum search threads there is less concern about duplicates (eventhough there are still many made!)
We don't have that many and they are all quite popular ^-^- i've seen much worse!
Oh and that FAQ thread sounds huge! O_O you have alot of patience!

If it's annoying anyone then feel free to ask for my thread to be unstickied ^-^ - it should be gone soon though when i choose staff.

"with all of the other problems on the site."
OMG you gotta keep me on the line about this stuff, so I'm up to date in my bitching!

But yea, my ideas are the best...how hot would that be to just have all the sticky shit at the top? I'll tell you, hotter then mauz in a bikini! Jut have the titles like "rules", "picture thread", "introduce yourself", etc, with just direct links to treads in a hidden sticky section. It would be easily visible as it would be at the top. Easy to click on. It would take up like 3 inches of space vs like the 20 now...hotter then mauz in a bikini I tell you...yar!

I think stickies are a good thing. If you need to know something about something in the topic then it is always there. Especially with the forum rules thread. I think only important threads should be stickied.

lmao We really need to get mauz to be the centerpiece of the magazine.

I can PM you easily a list of everything I'm complaining about. But it'd be way too long and you'd probably fall asleep before you got a chance to complain about it to everyone else.

I also want to know what your screen resolution is if it's taking 20 inches of space up. Haha.

As much as I'm for organization, I think the stickies should stay. Users miss stickies often enough as is, if they were even less obvious, the number of people who miss them/are too lazy to look would be even higher.

im running at 1024x768 on a 19''. Standard, but i hear more and more are going higher res, dunno, this suits me fine. No dobut all the stickied threads vertically take up like 20inces. Vote Eros to reduce the bloat!

Hum, ok, but give me a holla if somethings up.

Fine stickies stay, but like I say. Hey! ...that rhymes.

Eros, There cannot be NO stickies at all. But of that list, I would probably only sticky the important and technical info: the FAQ and maybe the Thread Index. Too many stickies become a mass of bolded stuff that's gonna get overlooked.

I'm gonna say that I appreciate Crossy's effort, but I don't think one single sticky in the forum is going to force people to read it. HOWEVER, putting a list of important threads/stickies to read onto a page that's accessible via the top CR panel (where Inbox, Account settings, Photos, Buddies are) will get people to click on it to see the list, thus effectively sending people the right path down to CR good member attitude medal. (item doesn't exist)
