Add a redirect sticky?

Can A mod add a redirect sticky to HD talk for the "2014 DVD/BR spending Tab" thread?

Also if you could capitalize the S in spending I would be unusually appreciative as it is bugging me way more than it should.

Thanks!

It looks like the change was made from what I can see. If you need something let me know. Send me a PM.

Capitalization is fixed, thanks, that was bugging me.

Any way we could get a redirect sticky in HD tal?. I was just looking at # of participants each year and was thinking we would get more if the people who stopped looking in the DVD forum would see it too.

I can't do this but I would imagine that the workaround/practical method would be to physically move the existing thread to the "old" forum without setting a redirect and then to move it back and specify the redirect from the old forum to HD is a permanent one.

Alternatively, just make a sticky post in the DVD forum and include within it a link to the HD thread in question.

This may have been what the OP was asking for.

In which case, if not already done, he can make the post and the relevant mod can stickify it.

The first one.. I think. Now I am getting confused. The Skinny, 1 thread, but visible in both HD and DVD Talk.

Re: Add a redirect sticky?

Ok I tried it, but you can't redirect a sticky. The thread will put a redirect when you move it, but the redirect does not stick and falls down the list with the rest of the threads as they age.

So what I did was create a new thread in HD Talk and put a link to redirect people to the original thread in DVD Talk.

Here's the thread in HD
