Because it is redundant of what's stated in the links on the front page. If someone doesn't read what the Fest is all about before signing up and creating their first post, they sure won't read a thread in their appropriate forum (this is assuming that they actually find the right forum).
Dumb posts from newbies will happen no matter what. No point in clogging up the forum with stickies that aren't effective.

Hell it's worth it. This forum has more one time posters than any other site I've seen. Don't know why you should care how many stickies there are. Omg five stickies, the e36 has eight....

If it's helped that much on that forum, I wouldn't mind it being a sticky. If it works so well though, does this mean there will be no newbies to make fun of anymore

...And now it's officially a sticky.
I guess they had to have everyone on board, or else it was a hung jury. I'm sorry to have held this up everyone

Still applies today.
An extract from the above monologue is relevant here :


"Post after the problem has been solved; let everyone know how it came out and thank everyone again for their help. I can't stress how important this is."


It is surprising that even people with thousands of posts need to be reminded of basic courtesies, when their problem has received attention, interest, discussion and ultimately the correct solution from the forum. Perhaps in future they should take their car to a mechanic.

just out of curiosity .... the forum says E34 (1989 - 1995) but the E34 was first built in 1988 .... mine is actually 1988 ...
i guess in USA they started selling the E34 only in 1989
