Dear EDMWers,

I would like to remind all of you that with this master sticky thread, the linked threads are not stickied. This means that they are still subject to the automated thread pruning system which is run once every day.

All forums are configured to keep only the past 1 year threads, with the exception of high traffic casual forums such as EDMW, where only the past 100 days of threads are kept.

The pruning is configured to ignore sticky threads as well. So for those of you who want to keep the linked threads active, please check the last posts of the threads and if it is getting too close to the 100 days, do post something in there to reset the timer.

Thank you.

Removed sticky thread in EDMW for forum responsiveness as the problems have been much improved since its intended purpose back a few years ago.

However, we've moved it to the feedback forum and I've linked it in the 1st post.

I've moved a few sticky threads to the feedback forum and updated the 1st post to indicate these important notices.

Ideally members should be accustomed to these rules by now, which also means moderators will be less lenient on these matters - you should know what's tolerable/suitable for public discussion.

If you have concerns with how a matter is treated or handled - bring it up for discussion in the Feedback forum.

Failure to do so and stirring issues in this forum would mean not using the right channels to bring up an issue - the moderators have all rights to thrash your thread for being a nuisance. Why? Obviously EDMW is the wrong place to seek clarification and secondly, the volume in this forum is so high, most people don't even know what's the root cause and just mouth off inappropriately. That's tantamount to cyber-bullying.

We provide a platform for use and you're bound by our terms of use. If you can't respect that, you are free to use another channel.

Thank you for your time and have a pleasant time using the forums. It's not difficult - just be level-headed and treat people with respect.

Added a link on How to preserve a discussion from being pruned.

Want a discussion to remain in the forum for a longer period of time? Let the mods know here :)
