    because they seem to be staying at the top.

    makes me wonder why we even need these to be sticky... if they're truly hot, then they'll stay near the top because people will post into them. I would prefer that method over what has apparently been put into place (forcing them to the top by some imperial fiat)

    Those are not sticky threads those are Super Glue Threads, but I agree it is a bit odd and effects the flow of the board.

    An excellent point. Who makes the decisions about which is a "hot thread" (versus the rest of the board deciding to let a thread die)?

    yeah, i personally think it abstructs the flow of the threads too

    if they dont get responded to in a few days, they shouldnt be left there at the top when there are other active threads.

    o well

    I am not sure who decided which threads were going to be sticky, but the main reason for them being sticky is that they are some of the threads that are extremely helpful for new users, and are packed with information. They also contain alot of the simple questions that can be answered rather quickly. It seems to cut down on the newbie threads that have been answered ten thousand times.

    I agree that the "HOT TOPIC" seems to be a littl ebig and annoying, but it seems like a small price to pay to keep the board clear of all the repeat questions.

    Personally, I was flattered to see one of my threads chosen as a sticky thread... It made me feel special...:p

    I don't know. How a topic called: "Will OQO desktop-PC-in-the-pocket kill PPCs?" will help new users?

    I'm all about using stickies for useful topics, but the ones that are there right now are not IMO.

    Those sticky threads are worse then repeat newb questions. How can you say that there are to many repeat newb questions and then put the exact same 3 repeat questions in the first three spots forever? What makes message boards great is that they are made up of what the people want. Now some moderator thinks they know what everyone wants and mandates it, sigh.

    Yeah, I guess msmasitti, asatyss, and I are a bit too dictatorial... ;)

    They are now unglued; we don't know who glued them, so perhaps it was the God/Goddess of Technology having a bit of fun at our expense?
    :D

    ok, i think the flow of the threads is much better now with nothing shoved up and stuck at the top.

    :D
