Default A sticky of stickies

And this too will be stuck.

The Forget Cricket has lost of threads of value over and over again. Members are often asking questions that have been answered and discussed in the past (repeatedly). Of course, you can search but the search engine associated with the forum software is not the best and you do miss things.

Someone suggested putting things in stickies - the problem is, you may end up with 5 pages of stickies before you get to current discussion.

I had an idea - I could create 1 (ONE) sticky that will have a list of the most important FC discussions.

What would you suggest we put there?

I am thinking of at least the following:

  • Going back home after n years
  • Restaurants in Dhaka and Bangladesh
  • Buying stuff in Bangladesh
  • Food and recipes
Thse seem to be recurring themes and we have some fairly well trafficked threads.


Anything else?


Based on your feedback and suggestions, I will start putting the mother of all stickies together.

Maybe a thread about getting around in Bangladesh(transport - buses/trains/planes). Names and approximate prices of some of the service providers - also one on internet and cell phones.
I was hoping you (and everyone else) would point me to the preexisting threads that I could collate.

If you are looking for something like an FAQ - there are many Bangladesh portal sites that can give you that information.

a useless thread actually. Most of the stickies are emotion driven, which I find amusing. They are hardly ever informative. birthday celebration, pics of bd, this n that.

bangladdesh breaking news is oddly funny. The whole Forget forum is there for a breaking news. Breaking news itself is an instantaneous thing and would not be repeated - for which an sticky makes no sense. A news worth deserve a thread.

Now the informative ones,
Travel needs of bd, outing, food etc etc - most hits maybe google searched. which means whether it is sticky or not makes no difference. if u are a member then u should already know a thread like that is there - if u are not a frequent member to know that, you wouldn't be a frequent member to know that there is a travel guide sticky within a sticky thread.

This forum organization look good in head, but hardly would change member behavior.

my 2 cent.

But the conversation chronology is very useful.

7. Bangla Font Installation thread should be in the sticky list. I restored my system for the umpteenth time for you know what...and now have to look for the thread.

I'm now thinking of removing the stickies for most of the threads here and out the links in that one sticky thread. Thoughts?
