You realize that this doesn’t only happen in T Replacement, right? Just about every forum has its own group of repeated topics.
It can be frustrating sometimes, sure, but at the end of the day you’re dealing with individuals and individual cases. In a perfect world, everyone would read the stickies. But in a perfect world everyone would know what their general calorie intake should be for their goal, they’d know how to squat, and they’d know when their training program was poorly designed. If I had a dollar every time I asked someone “What, exactly, did you eat yesterday?”, I’d have a shit-ton of dollars, but I’m going to keep asking anytime it’s necessary.
As it stands, the stickies are as blatant as they can be. They’re pinned to the top of the forum page and viewable to anyone in the section. When we had a half-dozen different stickies, people eventually didn’t read them, so creating more stuff to see doesn’t help. As I said, it’s not a problem unique to T Replacement, but the other forums are managing the issue fine.

If I was running this, I would seek an auto response into any first threads in this forum, perhaps an automated email as well.[/quote]
De-personalizing the forum and creating bot responses isn’t what we consider a good idea. We want people helping people.
