I have been thinking about this for quite some time now but only today did I remember to post the question.

This forum is periodically gifted with spetacluar pictures of Seattle and the surrounding area. Pwright is to thank for a great majority, and once in a while others will post stunning pictures as well.

Yet every one of those threads are soon enough buried in the pile of new threads. So the question is: Why is there no sticky at the top of the page with a collection of all the pictures???

Of course, the only sticky is one that deals with a negative issue. Unless we are Fox News who choose to only focus on one side of the issue we should also have a sticky with the nice pictures of Seattle that Pwright and others post.

Other forums here on city data do it...I've always been perplexed why Seattle, which arguably has the nicest scenery in the country still does not have its own picture sticky at the top of the page.

Anyways, there is my question and also a plea for change. Remember, 08 is the year for all sorts of change we can believe in Lets start here on the Seattle forum.



Mod note: We had a sticky. I took the sticky down because most who post photos regularly refuse to post in the sticky-thread and want to start their own thread. I'm assuming because they can accumulate more rep points that way. I think it's useless to have a sticky if some use it and some don't. The trouble with posting photos in your own thread is that eventually the thread will get buried in the forum if no new posts are added to the thread. But that's the way the majority of photo posters choose to have it *shrugs shoulders*

Your suggestion may be a good one but most moderators do not have the time to keep such a dynamic sticky up to date.

Heh heh, 70Ford!! -- as below --

There was a sticky at the top of the Seattle forum specifically for photos. But some folks who post pix kept giving new pics their own new threads anyway -- to give them a title and thus provide actual information about what the new photos are about. So eventually the sticky was "unstuck" by the stick/unstick angel and allowed to drift down.

I think many would heartily agree with you that our scenery is breathtaking. One thing our area is pretty well known for, is that we don't necessarily do things the way everyone else does, so City-Data follows suit? But many will read your post and let's see what they say.



P.S. The photo below was kindly provided by contributor 70FORD, taken surreptitiously from behind cover, of a typical marauding gang in the Seattle area, reportedly "pure unadulterated evil" according to onlookers. As yet, no one has been able to photograph the BELLEVUE gangs, neither the Taupes nor the Mauves, as they seem to move too swiftly for any camera.

At the very least a sticky with links to the respective picture threads would do this forum a great justice, as I can understand the photographers wanting seperate threads for each picture bundle.

LOL@ Bellevue gangs

Good Luck. I tried snapping a picture of the Beiges meeting at Starbucks. Someone threw their Blackberry at my head and I barely made it out of there alive.
