Welllll, it used to deactivate user's accounts back in "Ye olden days." But you young whippersnappers weren't around then.

Why is the Soda Shop Gamer Connections thread stickied? It has only amassed two pages of replies in the 2+ years of its existence, and the last reply was in April. :?

Because it was requested to be so.

Can I request for my Bigfoot sightings thread to be stickied? \:D/
All jokes aside, and I say this with no disrespect for the admins' decisions, but is there actually a legitimate reason other than a personal request that this defunct thread is stickied?

When it was made, the intent was that it would be a place for those who did multi-player games to find and play with their Soda Shop Friends. Thus it was stickied so that it would be a quick place to go to and find your SS gaming friends. As it never took off, it's probably pointless for it to be stickied now.

Stickied means that a topic has had a setting put on it, that makes it "stuck" as one of the top posts on the forum. For example, the prayer requests thread is stickied in the chapel, and will always be at the top:

Ooh, since when do we have an “I certify I don’t have a duplicate account” box? Belle isn’t playing games.

I haven't seen the aforementioned box yet, but... may I ask why it was added? Just curious.

Because as stated in the rules, duplicate accounts are not allowed.

As far as I am aware, Isaiah the Ox does not currently hold any duplicate accounts.

Isn't Isaiah the Ox a troll account that Countess (Miss Friendship) uses? Wouldn't that count as a duplicate?
