  • Stickied Blog Posts?

      I know I'm confused. Why are they stickied? I admit I haven't clicked on them but it looks like we have a stickied post about pofs recent blog post plus a thread about said blog post. I don't think the stickies are working . . .

        I'm presuming (I really don't know) that WCI just turned "on" this feature & its catching up like a 1 time deal. Caught me off guard when I logged on.

          Either TPP writes 5 posts a day or you are right.

            I guess I will give it some time to see if I come around to it, but this sure clutters up things. I get PoF's blog and sometimes read it (I mean, I am a physician, FI, and (almost) RE...so I feel like I have a duty). I don't read TPP's...nor PMD's...nor any of the republished/recycled posts...but I guess it's about to get all sent my way anyhow. Ok....

              Ha ha. That wasn't what was supposed to happen. There should have only been one from each. Hopefully it'll be fine going forward, but we'll see. As far as the "sticky" bit, they're stickied for 48 hours after posting. Sorry about that. Thanks for the feedback, keep it coming.

                No offense intended. I realize the interrelated blogs are of interest to WCI, full disclosure I guess it’s more financial than literary.

                If one wants to peruse another blog, feel free. It feel like spam. Was looking for a filter capability. The old way was normally relevant to a post and discussion.

                Conceptually, it’s a violation of the policies.
                No posting of links without a point about why it might be of interest (I know, that’s not the actual rule. That’s how most take it.)

                  I think an actual compromise might be the latest one from each of them and when a new one is put up the old one is un-stickied. If there is still interest in the old ones, it will rise to the top due to the replies to the blog post.

                  I agree with stickying the recent ones. WCI has to maximize the financial success of the forum and blog. As I tell my daughter quite frequently, money does not grow on trees but by hard work ( and she rolls her eyes and says yeah, yeah)

                    What's the old way? I just added the RSS feeds this week. This is all brand new.

                    The reason it might be of interest is it is a WCI Network post posted on the WCI forum.

                    Spam? I think maybe we need to leave some of the spam posts up so you can see what spam looks like. Here are some examples from the comments left on the blog in the last 10 minutes:

                    That's what spam looks like. Are these RSS posts promotional? Absolutely. And yes, I am going to continue to promote the WCI business on the WCI Forum. That's not new and it's very unlikely to change. In fact, it's one of the main purposes of the forum.

                      The WCI Blog is a different flavor. That is the only point. I get "spam" from companies I do business with. Well, advertising is a better choice of words. You have business too. Completely up to you.
                      "Zuckerberg formerly claimed the request at the business’s F8 keynote," that one is great! Thanks for the reminder. You were up late too.

                    Those guys post about 3 times a week, so being stickied for 48 hours should be one at a time. Not sure exactly why the first time it posted the last dozen posts, but it seems to be working now. I post 6 times a week so I suppose I could unsticky mine after 24 hours.

                      As I’ve said before, I like the idea of the blog being posted to the forum, for further discussion. Some will inspire a lot of discussion and others not as much.

                        I like the idea of the sticky going forward. I think it'll be better once it is down to one from each of the blogs. I tend not to read passive income's or physician philosophers post regularly but maybe this will encourage me to read more of the interesting ones.

                          "As I tell my daughter quite frequently, money does not grow on trees but by hard work ( and she rolls her eyes and says yeah, yeah)". WCI listens.

                          Compliments to WCI for the new Forum. Kudo's to WCI for being open minded regarding potential changes. The effort made to consider business and user friendly suggestions is a very rare commodity today. I for one, greatly appreciate it. I hope the cross links eventual settle down and provide value. From a content standpoint, I would even welcome links to other blogs that WCI finds that might save him some effort in creating original content. I realize this crosses into the aggregator space but that is not the intend. Specific items that fit into the subject and target market, few and far between.

                            We've considered going the aggregator route a la Doximity at some point. Don't have the manpower right now.

                          I changed it to 24 hours as a sticky for all the "discuss latest blog post" threads. If people keep discussing it, it'll hang around longer, otherwise it'll unsticky and start dropping off rapidly after day 1.
