Sticky for Forum

Hello, Sirs!

I don't want our terrific mods to be so bogged down with moving threads referenced previously by myself.

I thought maybe we could put a nice Sticky at the top of Camaro General to let members know.

The NO Political Discussions type Sticky is perfect.

I do not expect you guys to have to patrol all the time, and nobody can expect newer members to know the etiquette in the beginning.

Thank you.

The man has a point. New users may not know what vocabulary or language to use in the search bar, and they certainly won't be aware of certain rules, like the restrictions on political discussion, because many sites have different rules. When this site blows up in population with the release of our favorite pony car, we may need more moderation anyway, though. I wouldn't be surprised if a couple more users became mods between February and May. This might make everyone's job easier, though.

Seriously, how have you guys not noticed the influx of new people posting about Congress, politics, or other issues without knowledge of Camaro5's policy towards what they post. It seems like it wouldn't take much effort to make that happen, and it could only do good.

Interesting... But, not quite.


It's pretty simple. You are chosen by the admins and mods. So, in fairness to Spike, if this were never never land he'd be mostly right.

I was stunned and flattered when they asked me. I truly had no idea I was even being considered.... FWIW.

A sticky is a thread that doesn't move, it stays where it is regardless of the date it was posted. So the sticky threads at the top of the forum page can be replied to but they will always stay there until un-stickied or deleted. They are usually done as such because they contain pertinent data regarding whatever sub-forum they are in.

for instance, if you go to the General discussion sub-forum you'll see 3 stickys
1. Important dates
2. Order count
3. Review Compilation

Assuming you are dead serious, A sticky is like a wall that you use to post up important threats. Like a cork board. You will usually find them at the top of a forum board. For example, the general discussions board.

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=2

Do you understand it now.
