It should be sticky then.
I forgot. It's vBullentin software and the default setting is stupid and lame. So if someone new is helped and you are new and you help him, you get squat for helping him because he's new. Makes perfect sense. Stupid Jelsoft mentality. How the heckle are you supposed to get good points only from people that have been here forever? What's the point of the system if new people are nothing? They suck as far as I am concerned. They are number one because they entered the forum market at just the right time. They have millions of forum sites using this crappy software with no logic to the toolbar and the point system.
User CP and Quick Links ?
How come User CP isn't a drop down with all the stuff that hangs off of quicklinks under User CP ?
Yea, yea, someone will say I don't know the software, but you are wrong. I'm a registered member of vBulletin and I have the software and the manual. They need to revamp many things but they don't because they don't want to confuse people with changes. Not realizing of course that people are confused already so it won't change it for the worse if they fix it.
I could go on and on but it just goes back to what I said in another thread. The point system is a joke.
So the only way to show kudos is to post a thread with a thank you since your rep addition to someone else counts towards some ratio, blah. Just like the colors... Green, Gold.. points per... Sounds like stars you get for grades in Kintergarden, doesn't it?
