Do We Want "Sticky" Topics?

Wed Jan 23, 2019 5:12 am

Before I became a Moderator I was one of those here clamoring for some topics (like my own Leaf Shopping, Tips & Tricks, and 2018 Leaf Cold Weather Package warning) to be made "sticky" - to remain at the top of topic lists even with no new posts so that they are seen by new site visitors. Well, I see that this is actually pretty easy to do. There is some concern among the other Mods about topics getting stale but still staying on top, but no actual objection to the idea. So I'm putting the question to the site: do we want a few sticky topics? If so, which ones? I think only topics recommended by others should be offered, and should get either unanimous or overwhelming support here to Get Sticky. I'm going to bed now, but I'll be back later this afternoon to participate.

One I would suggest is something that says Nissan will not upgrade the traction battery - I have seen it too many times with the same answer.

Do you have an existing topic in mind, or do you mean create a topic to note this?

Create a new topic that people can access about this question.

That gives me an idea. Rather than have a bunch of sticky topics, maybe make just two or three, each with links to existing topics. I could make one linked to my educational FAQ type posts, one linking to the LeafSpy and battery topics, and one with other links, maybe to common Leaf problems...

This one can go in a battery repair/replacement topic. It's a link to a battery pack pairing device. http://evsenhanced.com/products/hv-battery-pairing-tool/

Here is my thinking so far: we will likely want a sticky topic for new & used Leaf shopping. We will want one for LeafSpy topics. We will want one for Tips & Tricks & Mods, and one for common failures and malfunctions. What else?

I think it would be a good idea. There are several questions asked here repeatedly. I would suggest starting with those. Have a dedicated writer to update them as needed as new information comes in.

Rather than a bunch of stickies, is it possible to have one FAQ with links to a number of topics?
