Is the Sticky a Good Thing on the Song Threads?

Postby marybeth » Mon Feb 28, 2005 1:04 am

I've noticed that because the song threads are up there with stickies, there's a tendency to overlook when there are new posts. Anyone else agree? Might it be a good idea not to put a sticky on them, so people notice when it pops back up?

I think the main problem was that the icon for new posts on a sticky thread was barely distinguishable from the normal icon. I really would like to keep the song threads stickied, so what I did instead was change the icon that is displayed when there are new posts. Now, it will display the icon with the orange checkmark that you see on all the other threads. It should make it much more obvious when there are new posts in stickied threads.

Hope that helps!
