there are ten.... not so bad when you are looking on a pc or laptop screen, but on the mobile app it's hideous. imho, obv.

MrsShrek3 Tue 21-May-13 23:33:59

sorry SirTech- back lateblush

it's on the active convos. It looks like I am not alone with my Ishoos wink
it fills my tiny crappy screen.
very impressed if you can fix shock grin

I have an Amazing Suggestion.
Confiscate Justine's pritt stick (and everyone elses for that matter) and stop the buggers sticking so many things on there wink

I know that MNHQ usually try and restrict the number of stickies to 5, which I think makes sense.

But actually I don't think you should be able to hide stickies. After all, they are stickied because they are important. And the best example of this is the Christmas Appeal.

I lost count of the number of posters who said they hadn't seen any of the posts about the Christmas Appeal, despite it being stickied for ages. Presumably a fair proportion of these must have hidden the stickied posts.

indeedy BIWI. maybe the Christmas appeal should have a superglue-teflon-coated special bauble sticky that can't be hidden by people with crappy little phone screens like me
I'm off before I out myself as absolutely bonkers wine
oops too late

I hide them when the sea of purple gets too much.

Most of them are totally irrelevant to non UK MNers like me so I rarely even read the titles, but then I miss stuff <can't win>

MrsShrek3 Wed 22-May-13 00:09:22

btw now there are 11shock

Lioninthesun Wed 22-May-13 00:21:03

Oooh, I don't think I even know what 'Stickies' are!?
I thought I was mis-reading sickies or perhaps something to do with the Stick Man book confused
I'll go now... <grabs coat>

There are 17 stickies on active convos... I don't want to miss anything, but really it is too much on my phone screen. It doesn't hurt me to scroll down, but it does make me ignore all the stickies! Fewer of them would be good.

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 22-May-13 09:15:14

Hello. This is most worrying.

We NEVER have more than five stickies in Active, so it's most odd that you're seeing more.

Can those of you who ARE seeing more let us know how you're viewing MN please? (ie computer/laptop or phone with app, desktop, mobile etc etc)

Thank you

I can see 5. This on an Android phone.

I can see 4, android app.

Last night there were about 10 though

mindalina Wed 22-May-13 10:00:56

I have 23 stickied threads on my android app! They go back to November when I first installed the app. Maybe I need to reinstall it??

I have 5 but I hid about 7 just two days ago.

On my phone, mobile site, android.

I've had up to 8/9 at one time on a few occasions.

Iamaslummymummy Wed 22-May-13 10:36:22

I've got 13 on the android app atm

Steffanoid Wed 22-May-13 10:38:08

I've got tge android app ans it's happening on mine, strange thing is a week ago there were none..hmm

Oh thank god it's not just me. 19 stickies on top of active convos on my Android app. I'm losing the will to scroll confusedconfused

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 22-May-13 10:46:53

Blimey! OK, so it's mainly happening to folks using the android app then?

We'll try to work out what's going on.

Ginformation Wed 22-May-13 11:35:53

18 now... Android app on phone and tablet. All have been active in last day or 2 so I not getting old ones.

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 22-May-13 11:37:44

Right. Annoyingly, we can't replicate this on our androids in the office.

We'll keep trying to work out what's going on, though.
