There are quite a lot of pinned topics but most of them don't get any new responses. My suggestion's this:
Put on something like a JOHN WAYNE ARCHIVES in which some of these posts may go, some like Chilibill's Stories, I mean the topics that really hold some value for members who are looking for the hard data. Many members have written down stories of how they even got to meet the man, and those topics drop down the list as we go on. I think it might be important to get a hold on them and shorten the list of pinned topics at the same time which can get in the way of the hot topics of the week.
