Same for topics like posting your wallpaper, but we don’t sticky those either
I don’t recall wallpaper threads appearing with nearly as much frequency compared to music threads. Usually when one is opened, the last was outdated by a pretty good period so I’m not worried about those
I see music topics introduced on a literally monthly basis. Do a search for them and you can find a music topic literally every month. Some are focused around different genres and types which also a reason why the topic gets fragmented around many monthly threads
For years, people have been trying to make a “Music General” both in JFF and General for all music genres and types since the topic is broad and interesting enough. Considering the amount of demand for music topics and a Music General, I thought it was fair to help them out by stickying one thread, that way people can always see that one exists rather than make a new one once the current thread goes to page 2.
Also the actually active general threads like the pony thread in General, those are a lot more active than any music thread ever will be yet it’s still unstickied.
A sticky should not be something granted upon virtue. It should be granted upon necessity.
For Pony General, a sticky is not necessary. But for this thread I think it is, so people can easily see that an official Music General exists and wont need to make a new one. To give this thread a bit of a boost, so to speak until it’s picked up more
Stickied threads in Just For Fun just don’t work imo
That makes no sense. Why wouldn’t they?
JFF’s short attention span is WHY I stickied this. Without it, this thread will likely suffer the same fate as all music generals before it: it gets forgotten in page 2!
Can you explain to me what you plan to clean up and reorganise on the stickied threads in General?
There’s a lot of stickies in general, enough to use whole screen space and I was wary about adding one more. For one thing we can probably take down the Amanda.B sticky. (It’s been a month. We get that she’s gone.) That would give us more space for a new sticky
But I haven’t decided yet what needs to be done, I just think it could be worth looking into at some point. Plus since the general stickies all have the same theme of important site related stuff, I wasn’t sure if a General would fit among them.
I figured it would it make more sense to have unimportant Generals stickied in a location separate from important stickies, but that’s just me. This is something mods overall need to discuss
you’re planning to expand them to the General stuff as well.
Like I said, I haven’t fully decided. I wanted to council with other mods about that first.
Music is a VERY broad topic, and it has staying power, so a general thread in General is justified.
Questioning our taste in music and the fact that this isn’t really meme research make it fitting for General.
If people ultimately agree that this thread belongs in General then that’s okay.
