For example, in the Windows 7 forum, this thread on upgrade paths used to be a sticky before the recent site upgrade. I think that whs' thread about running Windows 7 in a VM was sticky there, too. There were sticky threads in other forums also, but I don't remember them all.

Can these be restored, please? Thanks.

I miss BobJams sticky of useful links. Another thing about the site upgrade, could someone tell me what the explanation point in the red circle is supposed to mean or do?

That's to alert the Mods to a problem with a post ( spam, bad language, flaming etc. )

Ok, one more question. Why are there question marks in blue circles all down the ot where no questions are being asked or answered?

In the eye of the beholder I suppose. I'm sorry to sound forum stupid after a year and a half, but what happened to my profile. I don't have the topics I've started or participated in anymore. Before the site upgrades, I was able to go back through pages.

Look under Views on the Latest Discussions page or Quick Links.

Thanks Bart :) I wasn't aware those things had moved to a different location.

No problem. I think the new look is still a work in progress. :)

Also, could someone stop Oma from hijacking my thread! :-P (Just kidding -- those are all good questions and I don't expect my original request to get lost in all of this).

That's odd. Those topics are marked as sticky, but they don't show that way. Hmm.

Oma, touché! I would also like a feature that would allow me to erase all evidence of that whole Loretta fiasco. :-(

You can erase the evidence, but you can't erase us ;) I just reread and noticed my Freudian slip. I actually am at my explanation point <lol>

The sticky threads is just a bug, will try and get it fixed up.

On the profile pages, we really just need to add a "more" link to the actual views.
