Bring back up to the top

Dont know why really as anyone can ask for an address and it will be given out no questions asked



jax Report 25 Jul 2011 00:31

I deleted my post off the stickied thread but it did'nt make any difference with the flow of convosation. I did'nt like it being at the top of my threads when there was nothing being added to it :-)

I have put sticking plaster on it. :-)

Now I am wondering will it stay or will it go. I don't know ;-)

Edit: I think it must've been a double yolker seems there is still some on my chin.

Persephone Report 24 Jul 2011 22:47


And while I think it about please don't delete posts people, when it causes disruption to the flow of things.

Wipes egg off my face.

It would be good if Genes did Sticky this thread as it is a very point and it's important that it gets stickied.

Looks like you have same reply as Sue then - I am waiting still to see if i get same reply or something different

If is the same then hopefully if we keep mentioning sticky they may change their minds considering how many members are asking for this to be done

I quote, in response to my request that the post be reinstated and stickied,

"We haven't found anything wrong with this post at all and it's relevant where it is, so we've reinstated it. I'm afraid we won't sticky it, but you're more than welcome to keep it nudged."


jax Report 21 Jul 2011 16:10

Back to the top it goes

Joy - Kentish Maid

I did notice that Sue had posted that yesterday

But all i can tell you is what i have already said as above

I was told i will hear more regarding this so until here back it would be unfair for me to comment on it

But i was assured it is been looking into regarding being stickied

Sheila they probably wont ask the person why they did it but they will have warned them regarding it

And in all fairness to genes they are keeping an eye on this thread and they are re in - instating the posts that are request reviewed

So that this thread is not spoilt in anyway

Of to bed now so will look in again some time tomorrow


Joy Report 20 Jul 2011 23:06

Sue posted yesterday "I have already asked GR to make this a sticky but they said they couldn't ".


Sheila Report 20 Jul 2011 23:06

Maybe they should ask the person who keeps reporting it their reason for doing so ? whilst we do not all agree with every comment on this thread, there are some very valid points made in the original posting by Chrissie, that should make us take stock and think before we act.

Hi All

In answer to your question Sheila i and a few members asked for it to be stickied the other day after we emailed Gr and it has been passed on to the people in charge of sticky threads

I have spoken with Phil Moir on several occasions and i can not divulge to much at the moment but this thread is being constantly monitored by them all the time

They have also contacted the person who kept pressing request review on this thread

Gr also have said they are very happy for this thread to stay as it does not break any conditions


Joy Report 20 Jul 2011 22:27

No, but I posted yesterday
"If the content is disliked so much by a member / members, but it is reinstated each time and, therefore, considered within the T & C, perhaps genes reunited would care to put it in a sticky posted by themselves?" and am thinking about asking genes reunited if this could be done.


Sheila Report 20 Jul 2011 22:15

Has anyone requested in their e-mail to GR that this thread has a sticky attached to it ? are they not prepared to divulge the reason the person has for wanting the thread removed ?
