I find it rather silly that Forum:Yew Grove Archives and Forum:Previously rejected proposals - READ THIS BEFORE YOU POSTLinks removed, as pages have been moved have been stickied forever, considering that they are not actually discussion forums. I find that it would be easier to make links to those pages (as well as moving those two pages into the Projectspace, as they are not discussion forums in the least bit) above the stickies section. I would also like to propose that we try and make more use of the stickies section, an example of doing this being:

  • Adding stickies to threads that are considerably urgent.
  • Adding stickies to threads that represent a larger change to the wiki as a whole compared to the majority of topics, such as when we where discussing skinning the wiki.

Comment - How on earth do you skin a wiki? It's not an animal. --LiquidTalk 16:07, March 30, 2010 (UTC)

We used a special tanning tool called CSS. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 16:12, March 30, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Isn't the READ THIS BEFORE YOU POST also a discussion? We could discuss there which topic should go on the page. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 16:14, March 30, 2010 (UTC)

In the past it appears that we have done that on the forum we want to add to the list, in one way or another. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 16:15, March 30, 2010 (UTC)
I think we should change that. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 16:16, March 30, 2010 (UTC)
Why not have a different thread for each addition to the list? Having it all in one will get very confusing very quickly. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 16:20, March 30, 2010 (UTC)
Could work. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 16:34, March 30, 2010 (UTC)
We already know having a different thread for each works, and is much more uniform then having it in one big confusing thread. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 16:41, March 30, 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, I meant that your suggestion could work Wink Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 16:56, March 30, 2010 (UTC)
Oh, sorry OMG!. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 17:14, March 30, 2010 (UTC)

Support - I was thinking the same thing. Although I'm not so sure about moving them into the Project: namespace; I think Forum may be better, if not just for categorisation purposes. Stickies could become very useful if this is implemented. ^_^ Chicken7 >talk 02:28, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

Support, leave in Forum namespace - Yeah I think stickies should generally be for some sort of pressing discussion, whether it be time-sensitive or far-reaching. Archives and previously rejected are neither. I think previously rejected deserves a link in the YG header, but its not an active discussion, so there's nothing to discuss. I think the YG Arcives should have been archived a long time ago, since it's just very old discussions. I think both still belong in the Forum namespace since they are at least collections of YG discussions and the seem out of place in the Projectspace.

Actually, Forum:Archiving the Yew Grove was a discussion I made about a year ago. (It, too, was archived too early. Frown) White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 20:47, May 6, 2010 (UTC)

Closed - Forum:Yew Grove Archives and Forum:Previously rejected proposals - READ THIS BEFORE YOU POST have been moved to here and here respectively, keeping them out of the forum's active list, but tied to the YG/out of the Project: namespace. As a guideline to administrators, stickies should be added to threads that you consider to have effects that affect the greater community or content on the site. Time-dependant threads, like Wikifest organisation, should be stickied. Chicken7 >talk 15:15, June 28, 2010 (UTC)
