Stickies to contentious questions
« on: August 11, 2010, 06:58:51 PM »
Matt - just further to our discussion about youtube videos etc...

I reckon it would be helpful to you guys to have a few stickies in here with really simple titles.

It's true that people accept the rules yet probably don't re-read them (if at all) once their accounts are up and running.

So a few threads like:

Why YouTube links are OK but Torrents are not
Why you can't trade Tickets on this Forum
Why this Forum must not be used as a replacement for eBay

stickied in the usual places would make life easier for you when these repeated questions and violations occur.

Just post the link to the sticky, lock the thread. Done and dusted.

Sorry Joe - not sure if you missed a bit of discussion Matt and I had.

Matt explained really well - better than anyone has before - about the differences and reasons for some decisions, specifically around youtube etc. I suggested that items like that be made easy to access stickies so that you lot can just go "bang - here's the link - shut up" without having to spend time justifying it over and over again.

Matt seemed to think it was a good idea...

So just added a couple of additional suggestions in the right place here.

I'm aware of the rules.

I did see that but still thought a friendly reminder was not out of place here. Granted, I did not share those thoughts and can appreciate why you looked at me funny.

 :o

I guess it could have been the recent rugby results as well.  :P
