So when are the FREE/BARGAIN stickies going to be changes? Shall I create the ToC thread for this?

Jon, what part of Paul's post didn't you understand?

There are going to be no changes in the Bargain stickies for now. The issue has been considered and that's the decision. People are free to continue to argue the point, pro or con, and there may be changes eventually. Do try not to keep repeating the same point, however.

I'm confused. Hasn't the consensus in this thread been that there are too many free/bargain stickies? Doesn't that indicate support for changing the status quo?

JSWolf is clearly very upset by the inconsistency. I didn't get the impression that anyone else was much bothered one way or the other. While we know from past experience that some members really like having the stickies there.

To make it worth while upsetting some members, we'd need to be convinced that there were at least as many who were thought that changes must be made.

There's either too many or not enough.

I thought the idea of removing them and replacing them with a ToC stickie was what was decided. I don't get why it was decided to leave this very inconstant.

Hey Paul,
I have an idea. Just stickie and unstickie the cookbook thread say every 3 days. Leave everything else alone.

No. Some people (myself included) merely voiced their opinion that the idea sounded reasonable. There was no vote/decision. Sorry if you misunderstood.

Right. It sounds like a fine option, but I don't care one way or the other. I generally use the find new posts feature every time I come here as opposed to visiting specific sub-forums one by one or anything like that so sticky or not sticky doesn't really change anything for me.

A favourite quote of mine, especially when responding to editorial comments that I've not used a particular type of item or phrase consistently in a chapter!

Oh, and as for the actual topic of this discussion? Honestly, I couldn't care less.

The key word in the quote is foolish. Consistency is a virtue.

I agree with Jon. But since there seems to be an annual reevaluation by the mods regarding the board each December, I would be completely content to wait till Jan. 1 for any changes to be made.

I have no opinion one way or the other. I find the current structure very useful. I suspect I would also find any rearrangement very useful (once I got used to it).

I know, let's undo the current stickies, then sticky two pages worth of threads that are over five years old and go from there

In regard to all of the bargain threads, it is easy enough to subscribe to each one you are interested in each Jan. 1. I always click on the User CP button first thing when I visit each day, and there they are!
