Can we please prune the Sticky threads on this subforum?

Currently at 15, which is ridiculous.

Several of the 'site policies and warnings' threads could be collapsed into one.

Some of the magazine advertising threads date back to mid-2014. Those mags are long gone from the shelves...

I find that I can avoid wading past the 'stickies' by using 'new posts' (not 'What's new) on the upper selection bar rather than selecting a particular forum section. If done from the front page, you can scroll through all posts from every section, if you select say 'historic', then 'new posts' just new posts from the one section, without the pinned posts.

Well it works for me, I look in twice daily, so across all sections 15-25 threads to scan through the titles (no announcements to scroll past) of and select whichever I wish to pursue - often hovering the mouse over the title so I can read the first line of content before deciding to look further.

The stickies here are pretty restrained compared to some forums I've seen. Nonetheless, I share the sentiment.

That's the only method I have ever used. Works for me.

Point taken chaps, I've given it a bit of a clean up ;-) Thanks for the heads up!
Cheers, Mpacha.

Thanks for the clean-up, mpacha. For your consideration, it seems to me that the "warning/rule" threads could be condensed into one also. On the other side of the coin, it seems there is some angst about your unpinning of the Military Aviation News -- 2015 thread. It seems to me that this thread, being regularly updated with new posts, is hardly in danger of being lost, but evidently others have different ideas of what pinned threads are for.

Lol and the ONE thread that truly needs a sticky'ing, the news thread, gets dropped.
