How to find popular posts without wading through as many sticky posts.
How to find popular posts without wading through as many sticky posts?
First, determine which forum's popular posts you want to look at.
I personally like to start my day by checking the English General forum's popular tab, and then its new tab. Those two places are where official staff update announcements are most likely to appear first. So, I click the forum for that.
Step 1: In your subscription bar on the right of the forums, click the specific forum you want to look at. Step 2: Click the Popular tab. Only the sticky posts for that specific forum will be at the top, followed by the recently popular posts for that forum.
The English General forum, shown in the example only has about 10 sticky posts at the top. So, it's already quite a few. But, it is far fewer than if you'd searched through the popular tab of your Discussion Stream (The collection of all discussions from all forums you are subscribed to.)
Edit If it looks like this, with "Discussion Stream" written in big letters, you're in the wrong place:
It will look like that until you click on a specific forum.
Edit You can pick a different forum besides English General (Doesn't even have to be a General forum at all). If you click Spanish for English speakers, click on it, and it will work for that one. Click for example.
