Happy readings!

What! Another sticky post! This just clogs up the forum and allows less threads on the page! Please do not make any more topics sticky, 2 is more than enough.

Nice to see you included my post (about ACR with a DB) in your list though....and it's first... so thanks for that

Well, you don't think about the x threads that doesn't have to be written on behalf of these two sticky's.

They can actually help people with questions, and at the same time free up the space on the forum, doing exactly the opposite of what you are thinking.

I do not know about the ambitious card but Samuels ambitious post keeps turning up at the top of the pack. I think it is magic.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

What's wrong with asking questions that have already been answered? It's a discussion board. If I come in and ask about the best double lift or something, even if it's already been asked....there will still be many posts on it(The point of this board, partly). Plus, maybe someone wasn't on this board or didn't see a previous post, but may have an answer that wasn't posted yet. Or maybe I'll learn something new this year that will be an answer the next time it's posted. If you don't want to answer a post that's been asked a million times before, then don't. If you want to put sticky posts about previously answered questions, that's cool(Although I don't know which is more annoying, the same questions every few days, or posts that are ALWAYS at the top of my page). I still think you'll find these questions will be asked and discussed again and again, because we like to talk about magic. Even if it's already been done.

Seek and you may find.

Use the search function and you can find lots of things without seeming both ignorant and arrogant.

Reading is fundamental. Why do so many people write about how poorly they read?

How about...there are no stupid questions.

So, are we not supposed to ask questions that have already been discussed? If that's the case, this board will lose a lot of hits. All I was saying is that if people want to discuss things that have already been talked about(which apparently happens alot, due to the recent sticky posts), then let them discuss. How does it hurt you?


I think the sticky posts are very helpful, I just noticed it seemed to bother some people that there were discussions that already happened. I thought I could shed some light onto why.

These threads created by LeConte and Samuel are great.

Although same topics may be disscussed again and again, but you can make such discussions into higher level if posters learn from old threads before he post in new threads.

In that way, we can raise ourselves.

I agree. I get the feeling sometimes that people think down on those who choose to discuss a topic again. I think it's great to search the archive AND great to keep on discussing. That's why I like this place.

There are many other topics on which we should have threads like this (e.g. the classic pass) but I'm too lazy to do all that research. Smile

Otis Day:

Just to make an answer towards you, regarding why I made this post, is just to be an asset. I spent some hours on this work, so that others could use it as a resource - in other words to help.

My intention was never to deny those with the wish to post new threads to do so.

I totally agree in the fact that there should, and hopefully will be, new posts about the ambitious card or double lift! But there is a tendency, when someone asks about something that have been answered before - to post a series of links to other threads. With this sticky, that is obsolete now.

Thank you Samuel. I appreciate the work you put into this. I guess I was speaking to those who answer questions previosly asked with a snippy, "This has been covered hundreds of times. Why don't you do a search?" I look forward to searching through the archives and threads you've linked, and look forward to being apart of questions that have been asked a hundred times. I can't count how many times my 2 year old has asked me where the neighbors puppy is, and I answer every time.
