Seriously, can we combine the stickies on general discussion already? Maybe make it a FAQ single sticky with links to threads discussing each question/subject and one introduce yourself sticky.

I mean really. At the point we have 50% more stickies than normal threads on the first page when on mobile.

Edit: clarified the 50% figure is when viewed on mobile.

    The problem is 'time'. If one of the mods such as myself has the 'time' we can work on this.

    FAQs are limited ... So EVGA has control of those
     
    How much time as a % of all Forum time are you only on mobile ?
     
    It would be interesting to see more input from other users .... % of mobile time

    Hmm interesting issue. I'm going to have to go on the mobile site when i get a chance here to see what it looks like.
    I know on desktop it looks completely fine

    I haven't cleaned up the General Discussion area for probably two years. It needs some love.

    I really only browse the forums on mobile. I would say desktop is probably less than 5% of all time spent on here for me.

    I do see it's getting cleaned up. Thank you whoever is knocking this out.

    50% equals 5 threads, since mobile only displays 10 threads total per page. When given an actual number, 5 - 7 threads is minuscule since desktop sees 50 threads at a time.

    I am pretty sure the issue isn’t stickies, rather it is forum software that only allows 10 threads to show at a time on mobile. Combining the threads doesn’t change the page much at all.

    Since most forums contain around 4 sticky threads, the impact isn’t that large. Many people don’t seem to use the stickies anyway, as they ask the same question that the stickies cover directly above their questions... *shurgs* view the page in desktop mode to get a much better view of the forum.. downside is zooming to read anything displayed.

    I am on mobile 99% of the time, and only use desktop when I have to do a moderator adventure that is extremely tedious on mobile.

    Edit, and off topic, but I think it’s funny when people use percentages to make things sound bigger than it is. My wife told me I need to sell my motorcycle because 25% of her patients were motorcycle crash victims.. 25% was 1. 1 of her patients... 1 is miniscule, 25% sounds bigger.
