    I like the idea of putting ALL the stickies in one thread entitled Stickies. It would clean up the menu page tremendously and have everything safely tucked into a nice neat resource link for all things.

    Agate, I am for less stickies any way that can be accomplished. I am not for or against either way. Some are outdated but others like the websites were nicely updated by you. Maybe that one should be out where people can see it? Or, all the one's saved can go under a "Resources" sticky?

    Thanks Mod 5:)

    Thanks, ANN!

    If all of the old stickies are grouped together in one sticky, with links to the URLs, nobody could post any additional information or comments in them.

    Two or three of the stickies we now have are likely to have additional posts and in fact would be improved by updated information as time goes by.

    If you'd like to keep the old sticky threads on this forum, but not have them grouped together in one sticky, the stickies could be removed, and that would make them regular threads. If they were made into regular threads, you could subscribe to each one, and respond if you'd like. Subscribing would help you keep track of them if they get buried by new threads. Agate put links to the threads on the old site, so people can always read them if they'd like. Feel free to let me know, if you'd prefer to do it this way, rather than grouping some of the old stickies.

    It's really easy to put someone on ignore and it's strongly recommended that you do so with people whose posts you don't like.

    Step 1 - log in
    Step 2 - click on the "settings" link
    Step 3 - click on the "edit ignore list" link on the left side of the screen
    Step 4 - type (or paste if you copied and pasted it) the username of the person you want to ignore
    Step 5 - click the "ok" button on the right of the screen

    One important note though, this won't hide quoted posts. It's an oversight on the developers part and it's not an easy thing to "fix." So if someone quotes someone you have ignored, you'll see the quote.

    Alternatively when you click on a person's name and view their profile page, underneath their avatar, there is a option that says, "Ignore this person". Click that link and then click the yes button.

    The poll has closed, and the two stickies with the most votes were:

    Useful Websites
    Useful Books on MS and Related Subjects

    Unless anyone has objections, tomorrow I'll contact the moderators and ask them to unstick the other three, which are Fur Babies Album, Mike (AKA Grassman)--In Memoriam, and Evidence for Conventional and Alternative Therapies in MS.

    I'm going with Moderator 5's idea (see above):

    If you'd like to keep the old sticky threads on this forum, but not have them grouped together in one sticky, the stickies could be removed, and that would make them regular threads. If they were made into regular threads, you could subscribe to each one, and respond if you'd like. Subscribing would help you keep track of them if they get buried by new threads.
    This seems like a good solution to me.

    If this change goes through, the board will have 3 stickies instead of 6.
