I have been in discussion with the administrator of a phpBB forum I belong to about ‘stickies’. We were talking about the maximum that should be listed under any one forum. He has made the very valid point that having too many stickies is problematic. He goes on to point out that if someone is looking on a small screen device, they may not see anything other than the stickies and may therefore assume that they have no new unviewed posts to look at. He thinks that two stickies should be considered the maximum. Would others agree?
This must be a problem that all forums face from time to time so is there a solution that will keep everyone happy?
Before starting this topic I did do a search and found this: viewtopic.php?t=1393425
However the comments were posted in 2009, some 10 years ago. Since that time have there been any developments on the problem?
