A bit of a small, but somewhat important, idea. Do you suppose someone could set up a "Read first before posting"-type topic (e.g., something like this (http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=73)) in the Automatix forums? It really is a hassle to go through 9 stickies for one topic, and a tad confusing.

Thanks in advance!

I'm not active in the Automatix section. I've linked to your request in the stickies management thread at the staff forum.

So this will happen if some staff member is interested in contacting the Automatix people (arnieboy,mstlyevil,others?) to clean up the stickies.

We are trying a new way of stickies management : moving all the stickies to links in "READ THIS FIRST prior to posting - IMPORTANT links" We are open to suggestions for a better name.

If there are too much stickies around people just don't read them anymore.

A couple of staff members agreed we should definetely clean up the absolute beginners section in this new way.

I've also cleaned up "Edgy Eft" and "Installation and Upgrade help" because I'm quite active in these forum sections.

We'll probably leave it at these sections for now unless some staff member decides to clean up a section where he's active(for example the automatix forum).

This is just a test. If the test doesn't work out we'll just resticky the threads in the normal way.
