Hello!

I've noticed that sticky topics aren't sticked to the top of the forum. For example, http://www.orafaq.com/forum/t/197794/ is How to use code tags and make your code easier to read.

I had to post a dummy "Sticky test" message in that topic in order for it to appear at the top of the topics list in our SQL & PL/SQL forum. Once I removed that message, sticky wasn't sticked any more and was probably moved hundreds of pages down the list as it originally dates in 2011.

The same goes for all other sticky messages - I know that @vamsi kasina posted one in our EBS forum - it has disappeared as well.

Moreover, it wasn't locked for editing any more. *Maybe* it was because I posted that "dummy" message, which automatically removed lock mark.

Furthermore, img tag has changed
from [img]/forum/fa/9318/0/[/img]
to   [img]/forum/fa/9318/0/[/img]
so - no images any more - you have to visit topics again and re-insert image to a message body.

That would be all for now, I think.

I think I found the sorting problem:

Now to develop a patch...

Where did "check what other forum visitors are doing" go? Probably it wasn't called like that, but you know what I mean (I hope, at least). Though, if it ever comes back, a more frequent refresh would be a good idea.

It is still in the same place near the lower part of the screen. It is called "User Activity" now.

Huh, right! I'm sorry, I didn't notice it. Thank you, Barbara!
