I don't really see a lot of sticky threads as a "serious" problem. Does it really hinder your forum browsing experience that much?

I never said it was a serious problem, it is a simple problem with a simple solution. But apparently a mod doesn't agree.

Welcome back, Magoo! Long time, no see!

I think we should sticky this thread, it's important.

I disagree with you. I don't know if I get a vote but my vote is, the stickies stay.

Because they are a waste of space. Nobody wants to browse a messy forum.

Some threads just need to go. For example, famous houseofcantor quotes needs to go. Nothing against hoc, but I don't think anybody needs to go into that thread every time they open up the casual coffeehouse. As I look through the sticky threads in the coffeehouse, none of them deserve to be there in my opinion. They are good threads, but they should be left to fall in their own time.

Here is a list of all the pinned threads that I don't think should be pinned.

Coffeehouse:
-What is you latest first world problem? - Interesting, but is no different from any other thread.
-Favourite pics for a laugh at religion - Interesting,no different.
-Shoutbox - already a ranting corner is This that section
-Your day explained in a gif - Interesting, but no different.
-Indoor cat - Interesting, but no different.
-Alternate user picture - Interesting, but no different.
-Forum visualisations - Why is this pinned?

Atheism and Theism:
-Share your de-conversion story - already in introductions more or less.

This that and the other thing:
-Small things that make you smile
-What did you learn today?
-Why was today a good day thread
These are again, good threads, but no need to be pinned.

I think the mods on this forum have become too attached to these threads, and have become to afraid to unpin them for old times sake. If you really think about it, most pinned threads are great threads, but pinning them is unnecessary. By having so many, it means less space for normal threads, and we get less discussion and content. This need to be fixed.

Clearly, this thread needs to be stickied.

Lol Magoo

You think we'd just let you waltz back into the forum without a proper TTA Forum greeting, including customary thread derailment throw in for free?

RE: There is waaaaayyy to many sticky threads
I would agree that ones with less traffic could be considered to be unpinned. I however have one exception and that is Shannows Forum visualization thread. He put in so much time to do that, it gives an insight into this place and is part of its history (in my eyes)

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.
