    I didn't notice any sticky thread. Will we get them or are they posted somewhere else?
     
  2. The "Beta Feedback" forum has a couple of stickies... Haven't seen any others yet.

    yeah, stickies would come in handy. being a complete newbie to this it would be nice to be able to look over good basic information

    It could be useful, but I think that's the purpose of the "Welcome...and Thanks" thread by Randy

    So what type of info would be most helpful? Your questions/doubts/ideas can help generate content for future members.

    Maybe not. Randy's team is still deciding on the final feature set, but it may be that we get wikis in each forum for the reference content rather than stickies (which really don't work that well much of the time). But we'll definitely get something for the reference info.
     
  7. Some kind of wiki feature would be much more functional... Consider my vote cast

    Really just stuff new people would like to know. I am brand new to all of this so even the basics about credit cards. points, how to find cheap airfare, and things like that are all helpful.

    Stickies are handy when they're sensibly organized but I don't like them to take up too much space.

    A good use is to have one sticky per forum which contains links to many particularly useful threads grouped by content. This avoids the need to search for certain types of items, such as hotel master threads.

    The plan seems to be for wiki's in most of the forums. Much easier, more organized and cleaner than stickies.

    (edited typo, thanks Flyer)

    I think you mean cleaner than stickies. If so, I agree.

    Something like this would be a great idea. In the credit cards section there can be a sticky about "credit card for newbies" which has links to what to look for, transferring points, and other stuff like that.

    I'll take either Wiki or stickies. I like those threads telling me how to redeem alliance awards, fare class..etc. And airport connection

    I prefer the idea of a wiki. Stickies can get to be super long. Creating a wiki for each forum would help a lot.
