Some areas of the forum get bombarded with the same topic over and over again, and I believe this stifles good discussion and discourages people from regularly posting in these sections. One very common theme is begging/complaining threads. I'm not saying that there's necessarily anything wrong with these threads, but I think they should be contained if they're sprouting lots of duplicate threads. For example, in the Adsense forum, 90% of the threads used to be variations of "I got banned! What do I do?", "Why did I get banned from Adsense?", "How can I avoid getting banned from Adsense", etc. As someone that had a working Adsense account and was interested in information on how to make money from Adsense, the forum was an unreadable mess. I messaged a moderator of that section and suggested a sticky topic. To my surprise, he listened. Lots of people still ignored the sticky directive (which is another problem altogether), but I just looked at that section again for the first time in a while and it is a massive improvement. Finally there are discussions on a variety of topics and good information is being shared. This pattern of dupe topics still persists in many sections. I recently got interested in PPC, and I'm disappointed to see that most of the threads in the Yahoo/Bing section are people begging for vouchers/VCCs/accounts. There are very few threads where people actually discuss PPC. I used to frequent the YouTube forum, and the same issue existed where most threads were just people begging for bots, with almost zero discussion of marketing on YouTube. There are probably many other sections that I don't read that have this problem. I understand that sometimes it's appropriate to have a lot of threads on the same topic. For example, penguin/panda updates are always going to be relevant in the SEO sections, and it's a multi-faceted subject that perhaps warrants lots of threads. However, threads on some topics are going to be inherently lacking in content and don't really need to have threads created over and over again. Those ones could easily be consolidated into sticky topics and leave more room for productive discussion. I don't mean to sound too whiney or step on any toes. Just my two cents. This worked great for the Adsense section.
