Managing our 'stickies'

Can we talk about doing some housekeeping for our stickes in the next few weeks as everyone starts to deliver? I know they like to keep the sticky number to a minimum. Maybe some threads can be combined to make room for a breastfeeding support thread? I'm still pumping colostrum because my milk hasn't come in but I'm sure I'll be having questions and things to share with you all. Just a thought!

I've been wanting to get this done as well. if only we could get our mods finalized! We already have too many - the max is 5. Some could definitely be consolidated or unstickied.

Hear, hear. If we reach a consensus on what we would like done, I'd be happy to send Marla a message requesting the changes. I think we need a spaces thread for the babies (can be consolidated with the baby pool thread) and a breastfeeding support thread. Maybe we can also combine our spaces thread with the calendar one?

Good idea! We never had a BF'ing thread on my last BB and I think they are great

I was hoping maybe Baby pool, EDD & Calendar could go together, then Belly Pics and Spaces. I am still clinging to my space so far and want to print it out for my baby book before it disappears. BF sticky and a Babies sticky is a great idea if we are allowed that many! Biggrin

I think a sensible solution would be to have a "Nov 2011 Resources" sticky which could include:
Calendar of Important Events
Baby Pool
EDD List and Gender Predictions

Then we could keep our pregnancy spaces up, but rename it "Pregnancy Spaces".
Then we can have an "Arrivals List and Birth Stories" thread with the actual birth stats for our Sweet Potatoes.
A BF Support Thread
And a Sweet Potato Spaces thread if we want, or we could simply expand our Pregnancy Spaces in to Baby Spaces as well.

Also, the posts on Siggy and Pic guidelines and birth board info don't have to stay up forever, do they?

Sandra, good thinking! Want me to message a site assistant about the changes?

Hi ladies,

Just stumbled across this... let me know what you want moved/removed/combined/etc. and I can take care of it for you.

If you want to combine threads, what is often done is to make a new thread and move the old threads to someplace like the Keeper's Board (which doesn't ever get pruned) and put the links to them in the new thread. Just a suggestion for you... you may have another way of wanting things done Smile

As for the siggy guidelines/info sticky... I do like them to stay up until you get hosts simply for reference, once you have hosts then they do often unstick them as they can reference that information via the host board as needed. Secret Until then, I don't count those in the sticky total if you're over by one or two Wink

Thanks Marla.

What is our final consensus then? Should we create a new "Resources" thread with links to the threads we'd like to keep access to? What stickies would we like to have on our final tally?

Nov 2011 Sweet Potatoes Resources (EDD list and predictions, Baby Pool, Belly Pics, Calendar)
Breastfeeding Support Thread
November 2011 Pregnancy Spaces
Sweet Potatoes Arrivals List and Birth Stories
Nov 2011 Sweet Potatoes Spaces

Comments? Ideas? After we have all had our babies we could add the Pregnancy Spaces thread to the resource thread.

Marla, if you wouldn't mind stickying our new Arrivals and Birth Stories Thread, plus our new General Resource Thread.

Then the following stickies can be "unstickied":
Baby Pool
EDD List and Gender Predictions
Calendar
Belly Pics

Could you then move those threads to the keepers board for us? (Except for the calendar one, since we don't need the actual thread saved as I just used the Calendar link in the new thread)

Thank you!!!!

Hi,

Just letting you know I got the pm and do see this... I will get this done before the weekend is over (hopefully tonight) Smile

Just to double check... the ones unstickied/moved to the Keepers board, you do want the new links copied into your new General Resource thread?

Yes, thank you Marla. I wasn't sure how that worked.

I just think it's sad that this board doesn't even have mods yet! I know I offered to be one for December, and I PM'd Missy about it. She asked me to email her with my info, which I did (this was about 6 weeks ago) and I never heard anything back. How many of you offered to mod this board?

I was asked by Missy to be a mod for this board, and I emailed her my acceptance and information. That was over 2 months ago as well. I think they're just pretty backed up with getting mods assigned?

Ladies, I can promise you that Missy has not forgotten about setting up hosts or you... she does like to do them in order of month, October is still awaiting their official ones as well. However, with the new upgrades/etc. that are in the works, I do know she has been give a lot to take care of by HER boss(es) in preparation for that... so unfortunately some things have had to wait a little longer than she/we would like. We do truly appreciate your patience and can promise that you will NOT be host-less forever! Smile
