I voted no (and not just because I'm a moderator).

There are usually 6 stickies at any given time... two of them are temporary (game and bet threads) and are unstickied after a game is finished. The introduce yourself one, the prospect one, and the highlights one all serve at least a moderately important/reasonable purpose to the board. The locked thread that Wally posted should stay, mainly because it appears that there are many times that folks need to be reminded that the board isn't a place to trash your fellow poster, regardless of whether they're Bruins fans or not.

Maybe I've just gotten used to them being there, because I briefly check to see what's new in them first, then scroll along down to look at other threads. *shrug*

ok... I 've had pro and con PMs about this for a week.

For those that don't know.. My position is to allow those to remain that have "action" against them.

posts and comments in them. If they languish for a few days I pull the plug. I'm not a particular lover of stickys , but if there is interest in the content then they serve a purpose.

If people want to vote here. Fine.. But a simple yes or no ain't going to cut it with me..

You ( general you ) need to define or suggest is a better way of putting it .. which subjects that are posted in your opinion do not have value to the Board as a whole.

and lastly .. The Rules and Announcements are off limits.

My suggestions are unfortunately not easy to implement, I would guess.

I would not mind seeing some time of tabbed interface or perhaps some "related areas" such as links etc. In other words, relegate some things that are currently kept accessible via stickys to other areas that are easily accessible.

Unfortunately, Mark would have to let me/us edit his PHP code, I doubt that's gonna happen

I haven't a clue what you are talking about... when it comes to computer crap..I'm the first thing walking upright on that monkey to man evolution poster.

do you want me to sticky your poll ?

It doesn't bother me; although I guess if your fonts are big, your resolution is low and your monitor is tiny, it could be a nuisance...

I doubt the bet thread would slide off the front page (before its time)minus a sticky.

The game day thread probably wouldn't slide off either, but if it isn't prominently displayed near the top, some schmuck will start a redundant thread...

Yeah, Wally, I'll tell you where to sticky it!

j/k

I'm basically suggesting that there be links on the Bruins boards to related, specialized areas in which other things could be stored. There could be a "posters" section, a "game day" section, etc. The point would be to provide some different areas in which different kinds of posts could be categorized.

Anyway, that is outside the scope of what could be done, I'm sure.

Wally.

I think there are a few too many stickys, but they all have their purpose and information, so it's fine by me.

I think that if you Sticky this poll that there will be 1 too many sticky's. Based on how they look I'd say there are too many, but I wouldn't know which one to get rid of. They all have a purpose, so I say leave them.

actually the bet thread could be self sustaining as MJ suggests...

also..yeah...before Drury 77 started her world famous game day thread , I'd spend a lot of time deleting and merging stuff on game day. I want to keep that one stuck.

I tried to make the game video sticky that but it was to time consuming for " Russian Fan " to search each forum that he provides this service for ..so I let it stay stuck..

I may be talked into letting those 2 release if you all understand that "Bet" must be self sustaining and "Video" may no longer be updated..

Thoughts ?

I like the video one, so I think that should stay. The Bet one is easier to find when stickied because I find it hard to find (sometimes) after it's been unstickied to tally my points. Guess I'm not much help.

I have a suggestion: Edit/change the stickied Bruins Prospects' thread TITLE to read: "Bruins Prospects and Bruins Video Highlights". Then edit the first post in the prospects thread, adding a permanent link to RussianFan's thread. Then you can let his thread float loose...

Ooh, you could even do this with the Bet Thread. Post a link for it in the Game Day Thread and then have the Bet Thread float loose. Good idea misterjaggers.

hmmm.. I don't think I can do exactly what you are saying here but I can come close...let me try creating a links thread with those . I can lock it so there are no other posts in that "new" stuck thread...but everybody should be able to find them...hopefully...


oh..and if I blow up the place I'm blaming you ...

Nice work Wally.

Only thing, won't the Bet Thread link need to be changed every game?

yeah... you'll have to wait for me or HG to come by and change the link..
If that doesn't work out then we'll see if it can sustain itself by being free but topical..

we'll see.


or what would really be helpful would be if Drury 77 could put a link in the Game Day Thread ....then it wouls be pretty much automatically taken care of....

If anybody sees Traci posting tonight , please ask her..
