    One of these would be extremely useful to explain the club/clan forum rules, etc. to newcomers.

    supported. One per forum would be enough in my opinion.

    Or even just a space for a couple of lines, up there with the club motto.

    Integrating private club status updates within the forum's welcoming thread keeps it in plain view. Upon accepting new members, personalize the event with a brief message containing a link to the welcoming thread. Works fine in Club 344.

    Especially in a very active Club thsi thread can be missed because Posters post many things and the thread in question is just keeping bobbing up but is submersed again soon.

    A sticky thread sticks out by the colour of the bubble

    "Especially in a very active Club... "

    Ponderable, what average volume of posts/day would you consider "very active"?

    Edit Footnote: The General Forum has averaged 22-30 posts/day on page one since June 29, 2013.

    "very active" would be posts in several thraeds per day. The condition would be that the self created "sticky thread" would sink down daily.

    It is more a question of posts in different threads than overall post number.

    Would a private club forum with posts to thirty six different threads
    (and a current average of thirty one posts per day) during the past ten
    days qualify as "very active" or just medium active in your opinion?

    You know it already, now you get it written:

    Your Club is
    exceedingly active

    "Your club... "

    "It's our club, not gb's." ("Round Table Suggestion Box": one of our several introductory entries)

    Sense of ownership with no one playing king or queen of the hill matters.
    The relative impersonality of public forms matters far less than the desire
    for conversation. When the need isn't met, people will seek it elsewhere.
    Thanks, Ponderable, for your reply. -Bob

    Footnote with Verbatim Text:

    Q. #5 “I like word games because they’re easy and sometimes quite creative. Will they be permitted?”

    A. Of course. A few creatively different variations with potential for becoming lively (since casual conversation is our club’s primary reason for being) would give our forum an important dimension. Remember, it’s our private forum. Not, gb’s."
