I don't think that sb considers sticky management to be high priority, so I vote no.  :BEER:

I voted “No” because I think there are some “older” posts that still are relevant and should still be stickied. I would agree to removing “stickiness” from older posts that are no longer relevant.

Reason is not automatic. Those who deny it cannot be conquered by it. Do not count on them. Leave them alone.

That would be ideal, but who will ask Mr. Admin do it?

Not me.  ;)

No vote from me. I only browse the forum by categories when I’m going to post something, otherwise I always use the “recent posts” view or search function. I hardly ever see the stickies.

Not me neither! Shocked

It would be an arduous task, and as has been mentioned, mostly unnecessary. So, the “reward” isn’t enough to warrant the “work” required to do it well.

Actually I can do it fairly easy, I developed a little workflow that lets me easily de-sticky reviews and move them to a new category. It’s on my to-do list, hope to get to it soon.

Cool! But the part I thought would be “hard” was deciding which ones to remove. For me, it wouldn’t be purely date based. So, it would require (for me, if I were the one doing it) at least a cursory read through of each old post, and deciding whether it should be stickied still or let go. If it’s easy for you, I’m all for it. Big Smile

I agree that there are many stickies that are outdated at BLF. And I definitely think they would be better unstickied.

Sticky threads where all of the photo`s have been blocked by Photobucket making them very difficult to understand especially guides should be deleted.

 

But in general i voted NO.
