Sticky Posts question
« on: Saturday 10 April 04 23:17 BST (UK) »
Hi,

What is the deal with the sticky posts?  The ones that stay at the top of the list.  I undersstand why Admin or instructive ones should say but the ones on the census requests page are a wee bit annoying after a while.

I log on in short bursts as frequently as possible as I think this is a great site and want to support what you are doing.  I need to be quite quick in checking the new posts as it costs me time, I only have a defined amount of time per month on the package I am on.  The sticky posts are building up so you have to open a 2nd page to see what is new and see if you can help.

Cheers,
Pam

Hiya Pam,

Yes, you are right too many 'sticky posts' are annoying aren't they? I've just checked to see how many are "sticky" on the Census Requests page, but there are only five there at the moment which isn't too bad. ;)

The reason that they are sticky is because they are still awaiting lookups since January, so we or the moderators are keeping them up there hoping that some kind person will answer them. :)

We will try and reduce the number of sticky posts like this if we can.

All the best,
Trystan

On the subject of Sticky Posts, I posted a link to some graveyards in Cardiganshire which gives details of burials, see Cardiganshire General.   At the time I also sent a message to the Cardiganshire Moderator (Rootschat).   Am I right in assuming that I am unable to make this post 'Sticky'?   It would be useful if the link could be at the front of the list so it is obvious to those wishing to find burials.

Hi Dave,

do you mean this topic ?
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,546083.0.html

We don't like to "sticky" too many posts as this has a direct influence on the performance, but we are gradually combining many of the individual resource topics into one sticky topic for most welsh, scottish and irish boards. 

When we get around to Cardiganshire, your link will then be added to the sticky topic.

regards,
Bob

Hi Bob, yes that's the one.   The Council have digitised their burial records for 4 Cardiganshire cemeteries including Aberystwyth and so far I've found it most useful.   hope it will be of help to others in the future.
