Re: Why not a wiki
Pardon me if this sounds rough:
I don't know why you wasted your time. It's not a resource at all. It's a bunch of broken links on an escort.
Stickies are not a good source of information. They are not well indexed, they are not distinguishable from regular forum posts, and are not community editable. They also do not stay updated very long. Often, they even have wrong information. They depend on the writer of those stickies to keep them up to date. You expect users to sift through tons of forum posts before posting their own question, and inevitably bark at them for repeat posts. In reality, a user should be able to search the wiki for the right information, and if they don't find it, they post a question on it. If the post becomes useful, it's encouraged by the community to add this information to the wiki, so it is not lost in a mess of forum posts.
Your site's greatest utility can come from providing a unique source of information and support to Mazda enthusiasts.
I have seen the transition of several organizations to the use of a Wiki. The wiki on this site is hidden, not in the current process/rules being enforced by the community, and thus it will never ever be used.
I would suggest removing all the forum stickies and making them into links to a place on the wiki. The wiki will allow them to be cross referenced, indexed, corrected, clarified, and augmented.
