After yet another wonderful WG update, my vote for the only pinned thread would be the one with Ribble telling the entire NA player base to go F themselves.

 

Link?

Get her addicted to this game, that will clear that right up.

The deja Vu is strong here.  
 

Last time we did a clean up we got a slew of hate mail from other forum goers for removing pinned topics.  
   Today I made a thread with several older pinned threads.  
  I have unpinned those ones.  
 

We shall see what the results are and if this works for the majority of users.

Given the imperfect powers you have on the forum, this seems like the best approach.

 

Honest question, do you think those complaining about unpinned threads know about bookmark folders? This isn't snark.

 

My comment about "ten minutes" is obviously in regards to WG employees. If they ever revisit this topic, my suggested solution would be to create a subforum akin to what Vehicle Bay has. Essentially, this would lay out an area called "Game Resources and Pinned Threads." Sure, this is a bit of bootstrapping, but the result is a bucket for what are now pinned threads and a workable General Discussion.


[BRSKT] may or may not be recruiting you. 

Our Discord is now 61% Gritty content.

In all fairness, this forum's coding structure is ancient as far as I'm aware. 

 

Perhaps a revamp to the actual site itself would do more to revive it than just cleaning it. Also, archiving topics older than 1 year would greatly benefit the general cleanliness (and also cut down on the obnoxious amounts of necro-posting; seriously people. Stop reviving a topic that's from 2015.)

Agreed. Have to scroll on my iPhone to find where the pinned threads (lots of them) stop. At least make the pinned threads a different color so we know where to scroll to go to see new threads?

Stay tuned folks.

 

The forum indeed runs on a working blend of this and that, and it is probably out of the question to overhaul it and risk breaking things. But, the complains for mobile use have been heard with regards to the pins. There's some tweaks coming soon.

The best threads remained unpinned because they don’t need the crutch.
