Topics that should be stickies...

I don't know about you guys, but instead of some of the less than useful stickies we currently have (i.e. "Share your fish catching/trapping skills!" or the pointless "Fish Tanks and Human Disease: FYI") I would like to see some of these threads as stickies. As it is, I have to read about two new threads on these topics a week, and hear the same regurgitated answers over and over...

1) Which algea eater should I get?

2) Green water cure?

3) How do I put driftwood in my aquarium?

How about it mods?

Oh, I almost forgot, "How do I cycle my tank?"

I've literally been here for minutes, but this is a huge problem on most aquarium forums. Without these at easy reference, there is often an endless flow of questions that have been answered a hundred times before.

I second this request.

Malkore has done an exelent job with new stickys in the planted tanks area.. maybe some new ones on some of the hotter topics in genteral and or getting started would be nice..
a sticky about fish to avoid like channel cats, pacu, bala sharks.. BIG FISH to Avoid for the aquarium.. would be very nice.. I nominate Tortis for making the big fish list! Toirtis rocks!

The advisors have opted not to have a ton of stickies cluttering the tops of each forum, since the Qs will be asked again and again. There are excellent articles in our articles section, point s to them if you do not want to explain cycling. Here's an idea: write an article for AA for all to enjoy.

I moved some of those topics to "Monster Island."

Articles can be submitted to any advisor and will be reviewed by all advisors and site admins.

I agree that there shouldn't be a ton of stickies, but surely some of these topics are more relevant and useful than the fluff that is currently stuck.

If you look, you will see they are already "unstuck."

maybe make the articles more obvious for newbs to find? I know I forget about them (or when I was new, never saw them) until someone mentions them.

Don't count on it, this thread was quickly moved to the least trafficicked area of the site.
