I can see why videos/vlogs thread is a sticky, I think it's because for those that are trying to work out there type, this is one of the first places they'd look.FWIW i think the videos/vlogs thread would be a good candidate for unstickying. More to the point, though, i made that determination based on no post in the last 4 days. Since recent posts bump a thread to the top anyway, it seems pretty pointless to go designating these 8 threads as the ones worthy of special attention. The exception would be some sort of FAQ or policy thread where there isn't a lot of activity, but everyone needs to see it.
I don't get why videos/vlogs (or art and photography, or "You know you're an INFP when...", etc.) are inherently* any more important than any other thread. If people like the thread they bump it to the top. I don't understand the rationale for 90% of this. Please help!
IMPORTANT NOTE: I'm not yet asserting that this threads shouldn't be stickied. I'm saying, I don't even understand the rationale enough to have a big-picture opinion of whether they should or shouldn't. The only "policy" i can see is, "If a thread is kinda popular, make it a sticky."
*Inherently is the key. A FAQ is inherently more important than the posting traffic it gets. A statement of policy, "Read this before you post," is inherently more important. Some huge news like a forum regular having serious health problems might be deemed inherently more important. Just the fact that lots of people like to post on a thread does not make it inherently more important.
