too many sticky threads

Is there any way we can cut down some of the sticky threads? The general mtb, mtb marketplace, interbike, fall TGMBG are all rarely if ever used. just to clear up some clutter.

i just figured the general mtb thread would stay around the first page since it's used just not quite sticky worthy. As you wish though.

I'll agree that the place has gone through some sort of reform, deform, malform, rebuild. I can't say whether it's a negative or positive.

I miss stuff.

I don't see where he ever judged anyone. He was making an observation of excessive clutter at the top of the page. I agree...though not entirely. I would say that it's much better now that he started this thread and expressed his opinion. Good job, Craig3...ya freakin whiney baby!

Y'all will notice that the Interbike sticky is gone, at least until next September.

And the studded tire one will be gone in April or so.

I'm not aware of a "post your pictures" thread.

Hey, if one sticky can pre-empt 4 threads per week on the same friggin' topic, it's worth it.

If I had my druthers, the VBulletin software would allow us to have "subthreads" under a main thread. Then we could have just one 'Conversions' sticky that could cover the gamut from disc brakes to singlespeed, tubeless, rigid and so one.
