  • Stickies... and what to do with them.

    Since this new software has much better organization than the old software, I'm thinking that technical stickies (i.e. Suspension Stickies) should be relocated somewhere. This will free up area at the top of the sub-forum so the first 5-10 threads aren't "wasted".

    Anyway, opinions on where stuff like this should be located? It could be blogged, but the downside there is that when edited there is no way to bump it to the top so people become aware of the new information. Or is there? I like the blog format for commonly searched technical data as it allows for keywords, categories, etc. and comments don't become posts that are intermixed with the important stuff.

    Thoughts?

    Like I said I think there is some way that an admin can link a blog post at the top of a forum and it would serve just like a sticky. I'm not sure if that's what your looking for though.

    Do you think it would be better for a subforum itself just to hold technical stickies?

      I think a subforum of stickies would never be visited. Linking a blog post to the top of a forum kind of defeats the purpose. I'm thinking more like a "Technical" section that is formatted like the How-To at the top left. I.E.

      -Sixthsphere Guides
      --How-To: S
      --How-To: Ion
      --Etc.

      -Sixthsphere Technical
      --Performance
      --Suspension
      --Etc.

      I dunno though, some more input on this would be nice. A lot of the info in the stickies is going to be links to important threads, but they will have some article info as well.

        I think stickies in the form of technical articles should be eliminated and turned into "articles" in this software.
        I think probably a master thread though of like tire size or the spring talk thread so stay.

          Agreed, any thread that has user input should stay in sticky form.

          Threads like those in the performance section would need to be converted. Someone will have to take the time to pull the right info out of them, or just put them in a master sticky and post a link to said thread... some are in article form and some are not.

            What about creating one sticky, that is viewable board wide that goes to an FAQ Post linking to any good informational posts. That way the posts will pop to the top when replied in, but won't always be at the top. They will however be readily available and easy to find.

              ^That wouldn't be a bad idea at all. I think Ian (turbosc1) did that back in the TSN days in the tech section.
