Is it possible for this topic to be a sticky?

Off topic, but can we go through the Stickies with a critical eye and decide what really needs to be stickied?

It's two buses and a train ride down the page for me to get to the "Active" threads around here.

This thread, for example: Fantastically interesting and I hope a source of much discussion and thought, but it's not temple doctrine or tied to the conduct and management of the forum - So what gives it Sticky status?

Me asking for it, of course :evil:

Seriously, you make a good point. I would suggest we have ONE thread on critical thinking which would be sticked and locked, and where this kind of content could be added as a new post in the same thread by Admins, as it pertains to the issue of critical thinking. Then people can read through it all from various perspectives.

I believe this is the only stickied topic in Open Discussions but tell me if I'm wrong. It won't be stuck forever. A week to 10 days or so.

This menu line:

Index - Recent Topics - New Topic - No Replies - My Topics - Profile - Help - Search

Recent Topics should show only the topics that are either new or recently replied too. That might be a good way to skip over old inactive things.

I've always assumed they've clung to the top because they are "Stickies"

Great Caesar's Ghost! They are stuck. I see how to tell at a glance now. Thank you very much for pointing this out. I'll get busy unsticking most of them.

There's something missing from the opening post: ever increasingly ridiculous examples. I had a 'discussion' with a client recently who did not like that I would not budge on something so he came up with ever more ridiculous and outlandish reasons of why I was wrong until we were in the territory of the absurd.
