    Look at the dates under each title in the picture I attached: 2013, 2013, 2014, 2013, 2014, etc.
    Actually, I DON'T GET YOUR THREAD??? What makes you think that nothing has been posted here since '06?

    Stickies are threads that are 'stuck' to the top of the forum by design because they are important.

    Just trying to understand what your seeing.

    Look across the thread title, you will see a map pin. Those with the map pin are "stickies" 'cause they are stuck at the top due to importance or other feature of note.

    Maybe this image will help?
    KAS, yes "thread" means new topic/subject. All the items with a "pin" on the right side of the subject block are "stickies" meaning they will stay at the top. The newest non-sticky thread will appear below those.

    Threads are not necessarily new, but they will appear below the stickies. (The date shown in the title block is the date that the thread was started, the most recent response date is on the right hand end of the listing.) They can continue for years as the discussion goes along. Look up "This thread will never die" as a prime example --

    A little sensitive are we?

    Melbo, like all the others, is merely trying to point out that there were threads on the page started as recently as 12 days ago as evidenced by the thread start dates under the thread title. There's really no reason to get so pissy about it.

    That is not as fun as drunk dialing one of your buddies in a different time zone though, especially when they are 2-3 hours ahead of you..
