Just a thought, but couldn't the Locked in place Threads be placed in the Left-hand column like the 30 Hubs in 30 days?
Would allow more threads to be shown in the Recent Forum Activity column. Everyone will still see them.
Since these Locked Threads are more like Topics than Latest Activity in all Forums, I think they would be better in the left column.
I think it is that they would then move through the page like when someone asks a question it slowly filters down to the next page. But also, that is a place where if participating or not you can find new articles to read, plus post yours in the category. I am too new to vote on this though.
I am not saying to unlock as other threads...move them to the left column like the hubber's hangout, 30 hubs in 30 days, hubbers knowledge exchange, etc. Seems these would fit better there.
It looks to me like they are there to get more attention? It seems to be working
Not sure what you mean Michael. Are you talking about the 'sticky' threads?
Are you saying you are seeing stickied threads in the left column of some sub-forums?
I haven't seen it. Can you do a screenshot and post it? Or if you can't upload it and put it in a thread then let me know and I'll contact you with my email address and you can email it to me.
no....not in the left column.....I think the top 3 locked in place threads (sticky threads I guess you call them) in the Latest Activity In All Forums (right main column) would be better In the left column. A suggestion.
The Health hub contest, the Hubnuggets and the Hubmob weekly threads in the left column is the suggestion instead of Latest Activity.
I'm still not getting what you mean. Can you screenshot it?
DS, I think he means to place those sticky threads over on the left side of forum screen where the list of forum topics are.
<----------------- over there. when you're on the forum page and haven't opened up a thread.
These are Topics that will be going on for a long time. Make them Topics, instead of Threads.
The hubnugget thread is new every week as is the hubmob one, and the contest is just there for the month. All of these threads are stickified there so they get the attention of new hubbers and the not so new ones too.
I agree that the Hubnugget and the HubMob has new "information" every week, but...it is the same Topic every week, thus...my suggestion for the Topic Column. Same as the 30 Hubs in 30 Days...what is the difference? Can be seen by all on that column.

Whenever I open the forums, I see countless threads by the same people, many of them unanswered or with only a couple of comments. I would love to see a limit on how many threads the same person can open daily. I often have to go to page 2 or 3 to see what else people are...

When a user gets banned, they are no longer able to actively communicate with other site members in the forums, so it seems sensible that threads they started then get closed to further reply. This would also be useful in instances where people go on a persona spree to circumvent a ban and...

Since there's a place for suggestions...What about an option for starting a thread and inviting specific people to it? Public and Private threads, in other words. That way people could debate a topic without interference, work on a hub project together...other things I probably haven't thought of...

I think it would be useful to have a column added to the statistics page that shows the total number of shares for each hub (Tweets and Facebook likes). There is not enough room to add two columns. So this could be a sum of all tweets and all Facebook likes in one column labeled "Shares"....

Hi, I am new to creating hubs. With the capsules, I can get two colums of text. I can also get a column of text to the leftand a picture on the right-hand column.But I have not found a way to get the picture on the Left-hand column and text on the right.Is there some rational to this ?

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...
