A "sticky" for cc ettiquette?

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
I was thinking that perhaps an ettiquette "sticky" at the top of the forums might be nice. Maybe it would help to reduce the heated threads about bumping, saving, giving credit etc. Might be nice for newcomers to get aquainted with cc before they start posting. Just a thought.

Yes I'm all for it I just recently learned bumping is not really cool icon_redface.gif
and I am so guilty of that but I have also seen some newbies get demolished or making some comments without knowing "the community" here on cake central

The funny thing that I have noticed is that what might bother some people does not bother everyone. But someone will post something that bugs them and then it's supposed to be law.

My own opinion is that if someone is doing something that annoys me - I can choose to not read the thread. I don't feel that I have the right to impose my views on anyone here.

Yikes! I'm new. I've never bumped, nor have I been demolished, but now I'm a little wary! I certainly don't want to say/do the wrong thing. I didn't know there'd be a need for "etiquette," but if some veteran members think it might help us newbies then I'm all for it and will say "thanks" in advance for thinking of others.

THere are many good discussions on here. Sometimes they get heated, but seriously, with all the threads on here daily, the heated ones are the exception and not the rule. I'd hate to have a list of "don't discuss the following..... topics.

A sticky is a thread that is at the top of the forum that doesn't rotate like the other threads. In other words, it's always at the top and doesn't need to get bumped to the top again. Some examples of these are the fund for Cakerunner and the info on the lustre dusts that CC sells -- they are usually stickys on the front page. Good question! icon_smile.gif

Above it's mentioned that someone speaks so it's the law or whatever... but the whole bumping and saving thing Heath or Jackie or both have made mention previously that they both need to stop. There really is no need for it to be done. And when someone does "subscribe" to email notifications it's for a reason, because basically I'm too lazy to go to my forum posts section and reclick every single forum I'm waiting on replys on or would like to see the outcome of. Basically I feel if you aren't adding anything helpful or useful to the current topic at hand then you need not post. It takes ONE click with your finger and mouse to click Watch this topic for replies, it takes 4/5 key strokes and one click of the mouse to say bump or save.

Also the whole bumping thing.... I come online and come to CC I go to Forums and view unanswered posts. That is there for a reason. I also go to view posts since my last visit. It's very annoying to go to a post that has been made since my last visit and see that the person REALLY needs help drastically and the ONLY response they have gotten is BUMP from someone else because they can't help them. If you can't help don't post because there are ALOT of people here on CC that go to the UNanswered posts section of the forums to find people that need help. I can see if you want to bump your way to the front page but believe me from my own experiences it comes up with or without bumps and posts attached to it.

Just my two cents and I'm not bashing anyone or picking at anyone I'm just stating why the bump and save thing is so touchy. Heath and/or Jackie have already voiced their feelings on it and their feelings are it needs to stop. icon_smile.gif

I totally agree with this. Also until I read bobwonderbuns response, I didn't even understand what a sticky was. I don't know how to bump or save so I won't be doing that anyway.

Bumping and saving are sort of the same thing -- when you read a thread and the only thing someone has written is "save" or "bump" that means they are either: A) writing "save" so they can better locate this thread later or B) Bumping it back up to the top of the forum so others can read and comment on it.

It's the process of writing only "bump" or "save" that they want eliminated -- it takes up more server space which is at a premium now anyway. (I hope that made sense!) icon_smile.gif
