Are there too many "sticky"s in this forum? There are 11. Do we really need a sticky all the time for "It's fireworks time" and "Volunteering through photography"?

I read that many people don't "see" the sticky's and are suggested to go read the sticky's. Any way to condense the sticky's into their own sub-forum or some way of getting them into 1 line instead of 11? Or maybe create one whole forum with all the sticky's from this whole site.

Oh, I don't know Robert..... is 11 really a large number? I suppose it's a matter of perspective. I'd consider something like 50+ to be significant quantity.

I've been in photography for a little while so I tend NOT to look at most of the stickies myself. But I think they are a major benefit for those just starting out, or looking for specific info, or those who like a quick reference to some repetitive info.

I do agree that some don't see the sticky's, but perhaps that's because they don't make effective use of the search function for what they need. To be honest I'm kind of neutral on your suggestion - I can't see any really strong negatives for leaving it the way it is.

No

and "Volunteering through photography"?

Yes


What we really need is one regarding proper apostrophe usage.

Stickies are not established lightly. They're typically formed at the request of multiple members and after significant discussion among the moderation team.

I really fail to see what the issue is. If you don't like them, don't read them. For many members they form a quick and easy reference for particular subject to which they can provide a ink to assist other members. As long as a sticky remains useful, it will stay in place.

Well stickies serve a specific purpose and that is to be noticed. You have noticed them so they work ;)


btw this thread will be moved to forum talk where it really belongs.

By the way, fireworks displays aren't restricted to the US'4th of July celebrations. Fireworks are also associated with Guy Fawkes Day (November; UK) and the Chinese New Year (Jan./Feb. depending on the moon) among other events, so it would be up much of the year.

If Stickies were moved to a single place, typically nobody would go there. If you'd like to compile a "meta-thread" of important related threads that currently are, or should be, stickies, which would point to some of the existing stickies without losing them, we will certainly review it as a possible replacement for them. Take a look at some of the stickies in the EOS and Lens forums for examples of how this is done.

The real problem with stickies is that people don't read them. That's quite evident by the number of questions people continue to ask despite the fact that are answered in all the stickies.

And it won't help if we tuck the stickes away in a forum on its own as suggested. At least some do read the stickies but more could benefit from reading them.

But my issue is when I come to the "general photography talk", which is where I initially posted this because it was relevant to that particular forum, there are 11 stickies that take up nearly the entire view of posts. I need to scroll way down to see all the new posts.

Other forums are fine and have 1, 2 or maybe 3 stickies. That is my point of the post, since it was moved and now it is a bit disjointed because you cannot see all the stickies where this thread is now residing!
