The purpose of that thread is to help those who had thought about trying AHK_L,
I'm sorry if I implied the thread was not helpful; on the contrary, it is one of the "excellent examples of the advantages of AHK_L" I was referring to. As you said, "It was never meant to be a central ground for AHK_L questions," which is why it shouldn't be sticky. The value of its content is not questioned. I should also have noted that I proposed un-stickying it a few days ago to the other mods. Lexikos approved, and he had stickied it in the first place; so the decision to remove it was not unilateral, though it unfortunately appeared that way.
I don't think hotkeycamo should be listed as it is a third party app, closed source and nobody can be sure it doesn't contain anything "naughty".
This is an interesting point. I would like to hear more opinions about it.
I think the title "Notable Gui Programs" does not encourage to visit that thread.
I agree, it's a bad title. I had hoped someone would point that out.
None of the other GUI titles really grabbed my attention though, either. More suggestions are welcome.
Please note that the changes I've made are easily undoable. It would be the work of only a few minutes to return to the previous configuration. For this reason, I thought it would be more productive to show an idea than try to explain it. I think it's easier for people to comment on changes they can see.
Chris in this way has muddied the water even further by not getting with Lexikos and working this out before his announcement.
I agree, but I can't do anything about that. :? Also note that Chris is the only administrator. Moderators have no power to create or hide forums (which is why I don't want to discuss splitting anything up: there's nothing I can do even if I wanted to). Chris hid the announcements forum because he will no longer be using it, so there will be nothing new to see. It is available only for historical purposes.
