Anyone else think there's a need for this? Maybe it's just me.

What exactly would it address? What sort of information do you propose should be included in such a sticky?
I don't really recall seeing a great number of threads regarding SSDs.

Members experiences like install,speed differences,formatting. I just went through the first couple pages in notebooks forum and your right it's not a great number it seemed like more to me I should have went through that first. It just seemed where ssd drives are more affordable so more people are getting them maybe there would be some value there. But like I said just my opinion. thanks for your reply. :)

Oh, so maybe a general FAQ of sorts? I'm interested in what you're proposing because I have seen an increase in threads about SSDs. Just not a great number. But like you said, as prices come down, purchasing will increase.

Also, maybe it could address the difference between the "flash memory" drives of iOS devices vs. notebook and desktop SSDs. Just a suggestion/thought. :)

Write something up and give me a head's up when you've posted it.

I'm not a fan of stickies. They really don't work well for what you think they're intended. And then too many stickies get posted and the problem becomes even worse as they lose the little impact they already have.

Instead, I'm more than open to having you write up a blog article about SSD drives that can be posted and re-used where needed.

I agree with this.
Shweb has said many times over stickies are pointless cause the info in them just gets outdated. And people are reading outdated info.

Even my topic with all the info we know about OS X Lion was denied a sticky. I really think that'd be great if people could read that info. But I can see the reasoning. Same standards for all.

In my opinion most people are only interested in SSD vs traditional hard drive questions. And what is better for their needs. In saying that if you want to write up an article I'd really be interested to read it.

We're also in the middle of defining our content and sticky strategy so things are a little in flux right now. Ultimately when it's completed the strategy will allow us to be more consistent and provide a better end-user experience across the board.
