Too many fixed topics

09 Nov 2017, 01:07

In my eyes there are way too many fixed topics within most sections of this forum.

Almost within on each section the complete opening view is occupied with fixed topics. Visting the forum nearly daily, it's annoying to have to sroll down to see the new things (and as a daily visitor I know the contents of the fixed pages)

Either reduce the amount on fixed topics to a limited number (let's say not more than 3) - or offer an option where an user can hide already read fixed topics ... (and display them again automatically when contents changes)

+1

I think they are useful but need to be organized in a way so its less disruptive.

That's probably a valid point, although for me personally it is not important, because I always (=often) check the 'New Posts' page: https://autohotkey.com/boards/search.ph ... d=newposts That's how I found this topic, anyway.
Only if I am away for a longer time, I scroll directly through the subforums (or, what happens from time to time, 'New Posts' doesn't seem to display all new posts; not sure about the filter rules there)

You could combine these two as they are related:

* awesome-AutoHotkey list
* [AutoHotkey Programming Tools]

Made a quick Stylish style to hide announcements (remove the first line for Chrome):

Code: [Select all] [Download] (Untitled.css)GeSHi © Codebox Plus

@-moz-document domain("autohotkey.com")
{
div.forumbg.announcement, li.row.bg1.sticky, li.row.bg2.sticky{
display:none !important;
}
}

I've already updated to FireFox 57, so after greasemonkey gets updated, I can write a script on that to replace it as well as hide stickies. Or maybe someone else could, if they want to make an actual drop-down button for it.

Edit: nevermind, didn't notice there was a specific class for stickies. Updated the style above to hide stickies.
