The forum is beginging to get cluttered at the top in mine and other peoples opinions. Why do we need Details of both the October AND November issues of AW as sticky threads? THe most recent is obviously important but it is just seems lazy to not remove the old ones too! Can someone (mods or otherwise) unstick some as they are not relavent! EDIT - I am NOT complaining about Captain Ben thread as i have been talking about this with others BEFORE ben passed away. I think the Code of Conduct, Captain Ben and Current AW edition threads are fine. The rest are not used!

it's up to "UPDATES" to unsticky those threads, he is an employee of Key and I guess he has the right to sticky / unsticky threads as he sees fit, this forum costs Key a small packet to run so they have to try to sell their products as well and why not, I'll PM him and see if he wants 1 or 2 unstickied, he may have forgotten.

I think a permanent need for "Forum Meets" thread is unjustified. It hasent been used since July and there is no current talk of a meet. Meets are usually Spring onwards from a quick search of the forum...

Valid point, I will look at the sticky situation and see if we can make it less cluttered. I will also have a chat with UPDATES about making the ads more dynamic. Rikki

I see the number of stickies has been reduced - looks much better

Is it possible to replace/remove some stickies once again? The one on General about some competition is way out of date. Sorry to bring this up again.

As far as I can see theres also an Amsterdam Meet on the 4th February 2006 so shouldn't that be moved to the Forum Meets thread?

Again why is there a need to advertise the current AW mag and the old edition also? I cant imagine they havent been able to because they have been off for Christmas or such as the new AW post was on the 18th so why not remove it then?

A better question is why advertise a magazine on a forum full of its supporters, and hosted on its owners site no less?

Grey, They seem to be a Gomez Adams (from Adams Family) type of Train Set Operator in that case...
