 I hope this is ok to open up this discussion.

One of the things that I really like about this forum is the monthly "Available" thread - but I realize from reading other forums that technically we should be using the red sticky thread at the top.

Honestly I never, ever look there.  What are other people's thoughts? Should we migrate to the sticky thread or keep doing what we are doing?

And, again, I hope this is ok to post.

I never look there either. I'm OK either way you all want to do it. But I'm more likely to take note if it's amongst our usual discussion.

The romance folks get pretty upset over this kind of thing, but our group is smaller. Our talk threads are less likely to get lost amongst the clutter.

I never look at the sticky---I like it the way it is because at the beginning of each month, I'm reminded to look b/c there's a new thread. I agree w/ Genie. My vote is keep the Available Books This Month thread.

Yep, I'm with the monthly "available" thread group. I thought the sticky thread was just for deals anyway, like two for one deals, that sort of thing.

I vote for leaving things as they are.  I too thought the red sticky is for deals and bookshelf 'shout-outs'.

 

PS   HI to everyone...

I vote for leaving it the way it is too.  I look at the sticky thread maybe once a month.

Sounds good to me, I think we are all on the same page!

I agree too.  I never think to look in the sticky thread.

I agree with everyone else.  Plus, the one thing I like about the monthly threads (including the monthly "What are you reading" threads) is that it keeps them from getting too long.

Well, shoot!! No wonder I very seldom get any action from listing anything in that thread!
