This is a thread to suggest topics to be made sticky or to have their sticky status removed. Freedom Thread and Illogical Reasoning will never have their status changed unless the staff can agree on a good reason for it.

The sticky status will be changed if at least 5 people vote in favor of the decision.

Please use this form:
Name of thread:

Reason:

You must give a good reason for your idea to be considered. No spam, please.

Reason: PaP threads has been stickied for a long time, even though it's dead, while CaS' hasn't. I say we should archive the first ones and sticky the second ones.

Name of thread: Fandomon Request Thread
Link to thread: http://www.sporebase.com/forum/index.php?topic=4877.0
Reason: This will undoubtedly become a popular topic, but implementing fakemon into a Diamond hack takes time and I don't want the thread to get buried if I get swamped with requests. Besides, it is one of the few active topics in that board, and I don't want it getting mixed up with the many year-dead threads there.

Are you sure Clickables has to be stickied? Only about two or three people post their critters.

You never know when another member might join and have clickables that they want to show off. That thread doesn't get much activity at the moment, though, and constantly having to remake it due to the anti-necro rule would be frustrating. I think having it "just there", so that someone can share their adoptables whenever they want, is the best way to go. If we don't have the thread, then there's a chance of people spamming elsewhere with adoptables.

If you don't have adoptables that you want to show off, then the thread doesn't affect you at all. If you do, then it's beneficial so that you have a place to post them. This is why Clickables v2 will always be sticky.

Actually, if it isn't relevant to us, it just gets in the way. And adoptables are a silly spammy thing anyway, IMO.

How does it get in the way? It's just a thread to condense all adoptables into one place. You don't have to click it if you don't want to see them.

As my original post states, the Clickables v2 thread's sticky status is NOT going to change unless Kaos and/or SporeCheater say so. Please stop asking me to unsticky it.

Also, clickables are only spam if people choose to flood random posts with them. Putting them in a designated thread or in your signature, which is where they are intended to go in the first place, is NOT spam.

Alright Amber, you don't need to get all defensive. I'm just saying that the thread doesn't serve a very important purpose and serves too few people to be of much use to the general public.

And by your logic, wouldn't every post-your thread need to be stickied?

If the creator of it posted a suggestion here and got enough votes in favor, yes. Clickables is a remake of a thread pre-hacking that was stickied, so it sort of inherited the sticky status by default. The old one lost its sticky status because it devolved into a spam and flame-fest (although it was later re-stickied); I put several rules in the new one that will prevent such a problem from recurring.

Now, can we PLEASE stop discussing that single thread and get back to suggesting other topics for sticky/non-sticky? Last time I checked, this is not a "Should Clickables v2 be sticky?" thread, plus I made it pretty clear that suggestions here would not affect its status. If it REALLY bothers you THAT MUCH that there is a thread for adoptables that is stickied, make a new topic with a poll to vote in favor or against it remaining sticky.

If I remember correctly back in the day before you even got here Amber even when a lot of people used Clickables (ah the Dragon Cave days) the rule still was a topic in that section was not to be stickied unless really active not just so a few people can easily find it now and then, also if it's relevant your posts shouldn't be counted as necro. I find the thread should defiantly be unstickied, no offense but I think you just want to keep it stickied there because you like them so much, I don't see how it helps SporeBase by seeing a few people rarely post eggs and stuff and the majority of the active community want it unstickied including a Moderator, I say that's enough.
