Sticky Forum

Postby Dan Szwarc » Fri Sep 30, 2011 11:13 am

Tired of answering questions from Newbies? If you find a topic that has been asked a hundred times and think it should be in this forum, send a link to the topic as a PM to me, and I'll consider moving it here.

Once I set the permissions, users will be able to reply in this forum, but not create topics. That way, the stickies are under control.

What do ya'll think? This was proposed by a member here.

Please post if you can or cannot CREATE a new topic in this forum.
I can't easily test other permissions and don't feel like figuring it out.

No, I cannot create a new topic.
I'm a Moderator, should I be able to?

I'll try to fix it for moderators. Most topics will get copied here from other forums.
