Default Keep it simple

Hate to dampen your enthusiasm, K'tesh, but one must recognize that all information here is important to someone, and everyone's priorities are different. Why complicate an already workable system? This site is quite navigable. If all else fails, there is a 'search' box.

Thanks for the input...

True, but I've noticed a lot of newbie questions that are the same thing over and over again. On the 'search' box, I've found several times that I can't even find older topics that I, myself, started.

I think that there are a lot of topics that deserve a sticky status, but who wants to have to wade thru a ton of sticky threads, when one would do the job of many.

Default Sticky Topic

K'tesh - How about:

Rider Courtesy
Respecting Pedestrians
Shared Path Ettiquet (sp)
How to ride downtown

Stuff like that? It's kind of "rules of the road" but not necessarily legal stuff.

Smile New Category... Cool Tools

After finding the "Ride between the Raindrops" post, I realize that we need a "Cool Tools" category.
