your joking right?
Newcomers don't read the and/or comply with the forum Charter and/or Library (i. e., your initial submission here and disregarding example.com).
DESPITE a request from the same forum moderator with a topic which will stick to top requesting users to utilize example.com (you certainly disregarded his request).
What makes you believe multiple threads stuck to the top would provide better results for users that come after you?
There is no guarantee that all newcomers will read that topic and get there query resolved before asking, but definitely not all but some will read and not keep of putting common question again and again....
and coming to your second query i.e. disregarding Example.com or comply with forum, its better to straightforward ignore such topic or highlighted that this topic is not complied.
As far as mine submission is concerned, i've written Example.com which is as per direction
Perhaps you should apply to Brett for the moderators position.
It's obvious that your experience and innovative thinking are far beyond the stupidity of people that have been participating in these forums for more than a decade.
It's better to not to comment on one particularly who you don't know,
I'm not a technical person or webmaster, I'm director of public limited company and hundred of guys like you are reporting to me (which is actually out of syllabus for you, as these things are not tough anywhere) .... i come here in free time just to see how to make my dozens of site more and more better...
As a member of a forum that is addicted to Stickies, some of them dating from 2006, in such numbers that you have to scroll past them just to get to the real posts-- and then scroll back because some of those Sticky threads are active and ongoing--
Noooo! Pleease! The more stickies there are, the more likely people are to ignore them.
Besides, there are lots of forums where you can post a question and someone will jump right in and answer, even if they have already answered the identical question eight times in the past three days.
:: wandering off to compose boilerplate on Why We Don't Do It That Way with accompanying analogy about cleaning child's room ::
No need to compose that boilerplate. Jim posted similar multiple times for years.
As for the "example.com sticky thread", I'm guessing it has been ignored by at least 95% of posters since the message was originally posted.

that's true, including a great many users who have many posts to their name, not just newbies
