    What's The Deal With The Sticky's

    No more For "Trade" Sticky or "What Road Bike Do You Have" instead we get "Bored Snowbound Roadies". Come on mod's what were you thinking?

    I just don't see the point in trading long time fixtures that were interesting and related to biking for pointless crap. All though this is bikeforums.net and we love our pointless crap.

    They were old and bloated. Once you get past 10 pages, the thread becomes a labyrinth.

    Me too. Both of my bikes fit there, and it's cool to see what else is out there for bargain hunters.

    I don't want to have a head on but oh god, I HAVE to fling myself into oncoming traffic to pass, theres no alternative!!!

    If you really don't like the change, there's a separate forum dedicated to hearing your suggestions.

    Gee I am glad someone pointed out where the link is for the for trade sticky. Once again the powers that be have made things more of a hassle.

    Hey mods can you put that sicky back where it belongs or at least put it as a sicky in the for sale section?
    If it looks like the $3000 bikes but costs less than a decent helmet, it probably isn't a wise investment.

    I didn't touch these stickies. Lotek and I caught enough @#$% when we messed with the stickies in C&V.

    Joe, I've got mixed opionions on that idea. One one hand having them all in one place would make them consolidated and eliminate multiple posting. But how many posts of all MTB stuff does one want to scan through to find Road gear, and vise-versa.

    The only problem is that then it wouldn't be available to everyone. If you want the for trade sticky back, that can be arranged. We were trying to consolidate the stickies into an indexed thread to reduce clutter and give the new members a starting place, though, and the Nothing thread is only going to be stuck long enough to get established and running, after that, it'll be up to you guys to keep it on the main page.

    Tom, I think a For Trade thread stickied in here is a good idea. (IMHO)

    Apparently I logged on right before Tom changed it up - I was going to complain about the Thread About Nothing, but then it was gone when I read ^that post and hit refresh. I like the new lack of stickies. The only thing I would change is move the "Warning" thread to the top of the stickies.

    Unfortunately, as the other stickies are posted in, they replace the warning thread at the top.

    Tell us what threads you'd like in there for quick reference and we'll add them. If you have suggestions for a better organization let us know that too - it's a work in progress but it can only get better with constructive input.
