Stickys out of control

The sticky section of each sub-forum has grown to ridiculous proportions, that it now makes sense to have a sub-forum just for stickies. There's even at least one sticky that has no content.

Come on mods, clean it up a bit.

I've actually "un-stuck" or deleted several of the sticky posts, you so far are the first person who has complained to my knowledge. I will give it another look, and try not to forget......"we do what we do here for free".

I just went through every single section and even made some deletions/changes, there are not too many stickies my friend. I guess I can't really understand why this irritates you so much, perhaps give me some real examples or solutions to what you are thinking? I am open minded ya know. I can do many of the rules/changes the VS admin can do, it just has to make sense is all.

The stickies never bothered me. To the contrary, I find them to be very helpful.

there might be one or two threads in the sticky that we can merge together to make it less clunky.

Almost every section has sticky post topics, the OP appears to want a sticky for all stickies. I'll talk to the Mods, so please don't take any action without our approval.

The stickies relate directly to the section in which they sit.

If the stickies were moved to a separate thread:
1. very few would know that the stickies existed.
2. people would start a new thread rather than use (or even read) the sticky.

In some cases, the rules and guidelines on how to post are in the sticky - i.e. the For Sale thread.

They belong where they are now. Perhaps some might be out of date, or for a particular event, and can be unstuck, or deleted.
