What's wrong with pinned topics? Everyone can see them at the very top of the forum when they load the page.

It's not exactly hidden.

Once again just like the matter of the sub forums this issues comes down to browsing habits.

I didn't say there was anything wrong with pinned topics, I said for me personally it decreases the visibility of the topic.

I would suggest that this is because as I browse I often found I've scrolled halfway down the next tab before I've even switched to it and when you're quickly scanning the page it's easy for the pinned deals topic to be lost amongst the other pinned topics - which whilst important - are usually skipped straight over to view the top forum threads.

Personal preference.

Well Nicolas-C removed a lot of the old/dead pinned topics from the sub-forums just last week. It's much cleaner now imo :) And it was wayyy over due.

But only the mods have the stats if pinned topics are viewed as much as ones that aren't.

Man, seeing some of these deals on stuff like Gold and Points cards, I really am getting shafted here in Greece. The "points" cards work anywhere right? My XBL account is US based so I figure any codes I can get (somehow) should be fine.

Iirc points codes are region free, but XBL membership codes aren't.

Or is it the other way round? :blink:

07/11/10 - Singularity $35, Alan Wake $35 + $3 S/H at Kmart

:( I jumped at the $40 Alan Wake earlier. Oh well, at least with the $3 S+H it's only a $2 difference.

You removed the Gamestop deal even though I had updated the post a week ago to reflect that it's good until the 31st.. :)
