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.

AitchTwoOhOneTwo Tue 21-May-13 22:14:19

change your pref to 'no stickies'?

TooTabooToBoo Tue 21-May-13 22:15:53

I'm the same on the mobile app.

My settings, as far as I was aware are for 'no stickies', have never had them on the app before and they don't show up when I am on my laptop (ie now).

Off to check settings, glad I'm not the only one who's noticed it though.

I'm fairly sure you can hide them, like any other thread.

MrsShrek3 Tue 21-May-13 22:18:30

oooh. but I am too nosey to hide anything much I must investigate...
common sense as usual Aitch wink

Mintyy Tue 21-May-13 22:20:43

Yip, just hidden them all.

So ... you think there are too many stickies but you are too nosey to hide them confused

They do tend to lose all meaning when there are hoardes of the blighters. I don't even pay attention anymore - when there was one stickied thread every once in a while I'd always read it, on the basis that it had to be important. I don't want to hide them - presumably some of them are still interesting. But they've become wallpaper.

MrsShrek3 Tue 21-May-13 22:22:23

well I think I must be missing something grin

Hidden em now.

Ok, I have the stickies unselected (?) in Customise, I have done this on my laptop.

However, sat here with my phone next to me, I have just checked the Active Convos and the stickies are still there.

So, I can't just hide them as they aren't showing on my Active Convos via my laptop and there is no function to hide them on the android app.

I am at the mercy of baby brain, please be kind, am I missing something?

probably am

*I rarely use my laptop as it's crap and takes eleventy hours to boot up.

I use my phone to MN 99.9% of the time. I need rid of the stickies.

MrsShrek3 Tue 21-May-13 22:29:19

ditto, Too (but don't have the babybrain excuse) grin

They're still there on my android

TooTabooToBoo Tue 21-May-13 22:32:00

I think there's a glitch.

Have you reported this thread to get MNHQ's attention?

RedBushedT Tue 21-May-13 22:34:08

I thought this earlier. had to scroll through most of the page just to get past the stickies! very annoying. They lose all meaning when there are so many...

TooTabooToBoo Tue 21-May-13 22:36:02

I've reported.

<taps fingers>


<decides to go to bed as knackered>

Hopefully there'll be a resolution by morning - I'll be back around 4am ish <hint hint>

Oh! We'll pass this on to tech so that he can work some magic.

We hope your dh is doing well, MrsShrek3.

Ginformation Tue 21-May-13 23:03:59

ah, yes me too. Thought I was being thick... Stickies definitely switched off in customise, but still very much present on the app (android, if that makes a difference).

RenterNomad Tue 21-May-13 23:04:00

Nothing to add on the question of stickies, but just want to observe how refreshing it is to have Android namechecked, rather than the usual wall-too-wall apologies for poor typing because of a "bloody iphone" or "bloody ipad"!

MrsShrek3 Tue 21-May-13 23:04:36

cheers Julie. yes he is thankusmile

Tech (MNHQ) Tue 21-May-13 23:10:22

Hi MrsS, where are you seeing these ten stickies? Is it on active conversations or on a topic?

TooTabooToBoo Tue 21-May-13 23:12:36

I'm seeing them in Active Convos on android app only. When on laptop they are hidden as per my customised settings.

MsInterpret Tue 21-May-13 23:12:43

Is there a quick way to hide threads on the app?

Or any way, in fact? Ive got time...

Tech (MNHQ) Tue 21-May-13 23:27:44

I don't think there is a way to hide threads on the app. It sounds like the process on our side that sends data to the app is not requesting your sticky preference. We should be able to fix that - I'll take a look at it.

TooTabooToBoo Tue 21-May-13 23:29:27

you can't hide anything on the app.

On laptop / pc etc, you go to the Active Convos page, there is a hide button on the right of each thread.

if it isn't there, go to Customise (at the top of the Talk section) and there are many options including one to show the hide button.

Make sure you save changes before clicking back to the main talk area.

thanks Tech.

This has only been happening this past week, it is a recent glitch if that helps smile
