Splitting stick thread leaves the new thready "sticky" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everybody,

    If am I splitting a thread which is made "sticky" (someone posted unrelated question - this is the second time I'm splitting this thread), the newly created thread also has "sticky" attribute. I think it should not have it.

    Thanks.

  • This could be By Design. I'll check. If so, could you also add this to the Feature Request forum and Wiki?

    Thanks!

  • I don't think it's by design. Most likely this scenario was not considered. I'd say it's a minor bug that needs fixing.

  • We'll see. I could see some people arguing that when splitting a sticky thread you would expect both threads resulting to remain sticky. Then it's easy to make one unsticky. Plus what if the system automatically made the wrong one unsticky? That would be even more frustrating. I'll check, or you can email Brent.

    Thanks!

  • Doesn't Brent check this forum?

    Usually if the new post was made in a sticky thread that required splitting, it means that this post has nothing to do with the content of that thread. I am positive that the new thread should not be made sticky by default.

    Sometimes.

    You're assuming the user's intent. So I can easily see people arguing against adding a feature like this.

  • Splitting a thread is a moderator's only feature. In a few cases I had to split a sticky thread the new posts were absolutely irrelevant to the thread's content.

    Often it makes the most sense to lock sticky threads.
