Why has the "stickie" pin on this thread been removed?

Re: Exploras - Suggestion Box

An old request - would really like to see a portable solution for kept content now, especially since MC have since made it possible to transfer Explora content...

 

Insert a flash drive into an Explora USB port, transfer the recorded content from (or to?) it, or play directly from it.

Could be made to work on any Explora that is active with PVR access.

Could even be given an expiry date - preferred not, but if that's what it takes to get this then fine...

The reason its done this way is that there is value in keeping the original thread in its correct position within the board. What gets floated is not the thread, but an alias or shortcut to the original thread. When there are just a few threads then, it is confusing. But once there are a number of threads on the board and the one that was floated moves down, then the value of doing it this way increases and the confusion decreases.


Okay, so there is a reason for it. The original and the new thread.  I presume all items posted are actually posted to the original thread and there is only one copy, just two ways of displaying it.

Will have to research this to understand why this is necessary.

Thanks for the reply.

Re: Exploras - Suggestion Box

How come this causes the thread to be duplicated?

Re: Exploras - Suggestion Box

@Optimist We've pinned the thread :-)

Re: Exploras - Suggestion Box

I think you misunderstand Cya - by "sticky" I mean permanently pinning it to the top of the forum section, like what is done with our new TV schedule threads in the Series section.

 

If still unsure what I mean, please speak to @BusiN_DStv1  or @Nontsiki_DStv1  , they're the ones who do that for us.
