But then, as I said before, it wouldn't be anywhere near DDFers who don't check the newbie thread and are in the CC board looking for the Hyatt Master Thread. No offense taken, as you'll see in a second, I think you can question the value of something without attacking its creator.

Essay Time
  ...
1) PSA - accomplishes neither of these purposes.
2) CC Comparison - a useful chart that people may not know exists if it wasn't stickied. However, again, because of its maintenance difficulty, I don't think it should remain stickied.
3) DD Links - without being stickied, people may not know it exists and will be unlikely to search the forums for Dan's links, if they could even find them. They will likely just Google "current BA offer" and go to Chase's direct link. Hence, I vote it stays - for the sake of the man who runs the show.
4) CC Master Threads - accomplishes the purpose of making the board easier to navigate. Perhaps, if the wiki could be organized into a cleaner table, more links should be included - like a section on MS threads, Retention threads, etc. But if it starts to look anything like this, I'd delete it and just stick to the CC thread links.
5) Random Q's - something that's useful for people (and I bet would see a lot more use if it was stickied) while also being practically impossible to find in a search (as you'd have no idea what search terms to use).
Did you feel I was attacking you?!  :o  Chas v'shalom!!  Just trying to be logical in (what I thought) was a nice way.

1) skip-don't want to get in an arguement
2) I use that chart on a regular basis and LOVE it, but know I need to question the validity, unfortunately, for the reason you stated.
3)  totally agreed
4)  What if you were to name your chart Continue Here: Links to CC Threads stickied in the CC board.  The top section of this thread could be your current chart (even though it is similar to part of the Start Here: etc chart) and then the bottom section could be all the additions of which some are quite buried more than 10 pages back?  This sticky would then be dedicated for more advanced users. 
6) It is the 'this here' chart in your 4 above that is the real one to compare to
 
Again, these are NOT attacks on you in any way.  You have put in a tremendous amount of good work and obviusly have koichos in this area.  I am only trying to be efficient and logical.

Ha didn't think it was an attack. I didn't want Chaikel or yuneeq to think I was attacking their threads, so I just used that term when referring to you. Sorry for the confusion.

I didn't understand all your points exactly. Are you saying to keep this wiki but underneath it put a link of all other useful threads? That's not a bad idea. Again, though, it has to stay neat and it also has to be in this board, not in the "Start Here" board.

Whatever. This is not actually happening. The same way a few months ago people got into the mood of making the forums a better place for newbies and that excitement lasted for about 2 days. A new board was created. Too many threads were thrown into it that have WAY too many links for a newbie. The only good that really came out of it was (1) the Start Here board should attract a newbies eye and (2) the newbie should then be able to easily find the beginner's wiki, which is great. People were also supposed to do the Adopt-A-Wiki thing, but I wonder how many wikis actually got updated because of that. The forums need a lot of work and the mods here aren't interested. They have a job of cleaning up double threads and moving posts around and they do a good job of that. But, they don't do much in terms of organizing this place. Maybe it's not their job. Maybe a new position should be created. But hey none of that is my call. I just have OCD.

Yes, your wiki can be a totally comprehensive list of all CC threads (eventually going back more than only 10 pages) and then underneath this top part of the wiki could be tons of useful threads (also going back to tons of archived pages) for the more advanced users. 
 
This could be helpful to Dan by drawing in more advanced users to this new, awesomely organized CC wiki.  Then it would not be a repeat of the current Start Here wiki.
 
BTW, I beg to differ re Adopt-A-Wiki.  It was a tremendous face lift for DDF, but still it could use your 'OCD'edness and motivation to further organize it.  I think you are the right guy for it.

Ha appreciate it. It could also be because Dan is on vacation. Not sure any of the other mods normally play around with stickying threads, deleting stickied threads, etc.

Good idea. Polled created. Curious what people will think. Obviously, this doesn't at all imply that the mods will change anything even if the votes are in favor.

Can we have a choice called "either #2 or #3"?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Yehuda you are thr the best! 8-) And this thread rocks and should totally be stickied. I'll vote when I'm not on stupid Tapatalk. I agree that DDF needs work, and this thread/list is definitely a step in the right direction.

I voted for what I felt was the best option, then I discovered that apparently I'm the only one that feels that way. :'(
