Did those threads ever get stickied ?
I am not sure how ATS would feel about it but they should in my opinion be in a prominent place to eliminate duplicate postings on the same subjects
maybe internos could enquire.
Unfortunately they did not get stickied. But I keep them handy for just that reason. When I made those threads initially, it was to keep myself from
reposting what had already been discussed here, and to build a linking system so that I could investigate the threads that happened before my time at
I've seen a lot of duplicate postings occur, and I use the Compilation thread now as a resource to direct people to the existing threads. It would
be great if that thread in particular were stickied. I find there are a lot of people who don't even use the existing stickies though
But the search feature, while a great resource, often isn't enough to find what you are looking for. Many times I've been looking for a picture
that I know I've seen before, but the search feature only gives thread titles and descriptions. That's another reason I like to use the Compilation
as a resource, because I can just scan through it looking for the right pic, and then I know I've found the right casefile.
Most if not all of the entries in that thread link each case to it's source, and to the ATS threads that discuss the case. I find that helpful
Anyway, I highly suggest that new people take a peak at the thread in it's entirety. It certainly helped me to figure out what had already been
discussed here at ATS when I first started posting
