Remove stickies
#1
On the QBasic discussion forum, there are two stickies: The first one is especially a problem.

The problem: If I am a qbasic programmer searching for some forums to participate in, the first thing I see is what looks like a technical question/answer at http://forum.qbasicnews.com/index.php?board=3.0

It says "SCREEN RESOLUTION" and is dated May 31, 2006.

I then conclude "This forum is dead. No activity since 2006" so I go elsewhere. Actually this happened to me some months back and I updated my links section http://www.network54.com/Realm/QBZips/QBZips.html
to say this forum was inactive.

I now see that my conclusion was based on that sticky.

I recommend removing it. Even the next one could go, but at least it looks like a sticky and is immediately followed by more recent posts, so even though nobody in the history of the universe has ever read a sticky, it could remain.

Just a suggestion.

Suggestion taken and done. I am also trying to find out what the problem with the forum is with not sending out emails as I don't use them normally but will try get that sorted out too as its a problem.
