Hey Superpeer, why not sticky the Forced Listening thread you made? I'm sure it will always be in use, and that way it will be conveniently reachable.

Well, there are two "rules" threads, why not get rid of one of them, or combine them into one?

I know, but I didn't know SFK made it and I'll have to talk to him about it, I don't want to just get rid of his work.

I've always been of the opinion that Forced Listening threads should be left free, as they survive on their own pretty well (and if they don't, then there's no point them being there anyway). That way, it's usually only people who are really interested in the thread who use it, rather than just anyone (who tend to do poor reviews).

I agree. No need for it to be stickied.



SFK and Superpeer: If it isn't too much of a problem, could you guys sticky this? :-/ I know there is already four stickies...but I only want this up there until the Friday after this upcoming one. It doesn't survive on it's own, because I've already had to bump it a few times. So if it isn't a problem, please sticky it.

I don't know whether this is the right place to post it or not, but I was wondering if anyone knows why I have a referral

I don't know of anything I've done that hasn't gone by the rules...

That means that someone stated that you told them about this site and made them sign up.

It's not a bad thing, man.

haha nah dude, thats a good thing to have on your profile. Not many people have referrals, they are useless but its still a cool way to show that you brought someone to the coolest place on the net!

They weren't always useless. There used to be prizes, I think.

Yeah, but you had to get an extremely high number of people to join. I think they were Amazon gift certificates or something.

You could cheat though, you could just sign up a bunch of names yourself, make a few dumb posts, and refer your original name. I'm not sure if anyone did this, but i just realized it.

Idea: Just make one sticky thread with all the links to threads that are stickied now inside. Yes, i know this is already Kithkin's idea but it would be helpful in this forum as well.

Look at all the referrals on my Thy Trooper account. But those accounts weren't dumb accounts...They were real


I'm a changed man now though.

We don't need an official Cradle of Filth thread.

But I guess it's up to you guys.

I think making it so that people have to click twice to view any of the stickied thread will just mean that they get viewed a lot less.

That's true, but most of the people who look for the sticky threads now what they are doing because it's a competition or something like that so they know where it is and need to get there anyway.
With the exception of the genres of metal thread, i think most of the stickies can be organized into one thread.

:-/ I'm being a bit selfish here, but that would be a bit hard with my Defend a Band comp. going on. Since I just made it yesterday, a lot of the people in it don't know about it, and if it doesn't stay stickied where it's in clear sight on the first page, the whole rest of the competition will fail, because people won't know about it, nor will they be able to enter.

But like I said, that's my problem, not your guys'. I should be responsible for it.

This is true, here's an idea.
In the title of the thread with all the stickies, say in 1-2 words what links are in the thread.

I don't know about Superpeer, I guess we will discuss this, but I don't really plan on having very many sticky threads on the front page. This is such an active forum that we need to keep it clear. I don't particularly like the idea about putting all the stickies in one thread. I think the rules should be EXTREMELY visible so people will have no excuse to read them.

Ah. Well whatever you guys decide, I'm capable of just having my thread unstickied and bumping it every now and then, just to let you know.
