Treads/posts. They haven't had responses for weeks, months, or years, but there they are ! At top of list !!!

Trish created those to help members new to the site. I think they should be helpful to newbies, and should remain where they are. They serve the purpose for which they were intended. If you disagree and want them removed, I suggest you write directly to Dave or Trish.

"Stickies" are threads located at the top of many forums; the stickies contain pertinent information regarding a particular plant, etc.

Philip, that's why they are called 'stickies' because they stick to the top of the list. Rolling on the floor laughing

My preference would be to have all the stickies for a particular thread be combined into just one sticky so that all the information would be on the same page. It's hard enough for new folks to navigate and having the information in just one sticky might make it easier for them.

I came across this when I was looking for something else... Philip ( @Philipwonel ), I'm pretty sure there is no way for anyone other than an admin to make a post "sticky." The ones that you've seen from "long-time members" may have been the result of some things that were carried over here (long ago) from another site, "Cubits." Smiling

Administrators and moderators can make a sticky or remove it.
