Big thanks to everyone for chiming in with their opinion, it really helped us greatly to see the overall sentiment regarding the subject.

After consideration we have decided that from now on all threads regarding any kind of delisting will be stickied, starting from the time of the announcement to the time when said delisting actually happens. After that, they will be un-stickied.
With this we hope to increase the visibility for everyone interested, so that they can finalise their purchase before the product disappears from our storefront.

While I'm here, I'd also like to reassure you that we will let you know about delistings as soon as we receive the information from the publisher (or otherwise) ourselves.

I am also planning on cleaning up the sticky list as it is a bit cluttered right now, but that will come at a later date.

If you got any questions, let me know!

Hey everyone!

We've seen some discussion in regards to this topic, so we want to ask you officially now:
If a game is leaving our catalogue, should we sticky the announcement thread until said delisting happens?

Yes, no, why, why not? Give us your thoughts so we can reach a consensus. :)

Cheers!

First of all, long time forumites are used to stickies being set in stone and unchanging. So we're kind of trained to ignore them. That's why sticking removal threads is a somewhat disputable action.

However, if you can make it consistent and always make it a sticky, I could live with it.
It would be great to have them stickied to lend them increased visiblity.

That way everyone gets a last chance to purchase the game that is being delisted.

This is no longer the case with the What did Just Update thread - that one is regularly updated. The price matrix is also one that most international users would periodically check for updates. The destickying of games after they have been delisted is what prevents hordes of stale data populating the sticky section and keeps things manageable.

In any event, it isn't much effort to look at the top two stickies to see if there is anything new.

I would prefer stickying to continue. Failing that, something should be done to increase the visibility of the non-sticky listing. It looks just like an ordinary user post and doesn't stand out in the slightest.
I would prefer a single sticky thread for all game-delisting announcements.

But discussions of each particular delisting should take place in separate non-sticky topics.
Sticky.
Sticky is good. No delistings even better.
Yes to sticky, but with a leaner/cleaned up sticky section. If you could keep it around 5-6 max stickied posts at all times, it would be great.

P.S.: You could also prepend titles with "Delisting" so that they pop out in these situations. E.g.: "STICKY: Delisting - Raiden IV: OverKill" instead of "STICKY: Raiden IV: OverKill Delisting"

If i may have a vote i prefer sticky for better visibility. Otherwise it gets lost in a pile of threads.
Yes, please sticky the delistings.
Could be in a invidual game by game posts,
or a single one with all the games delisted,
that way theres a catalog of past games that
got removed of the store.
I do understand that the last option should imply a
strickly blue members posting, and then the discution
of that game would go on others threads, come to think of it,
it could actualy be the better way
Sticky thread, at least a couple days before delisting, preferably with a farewell discount. :)
I vote for sticky as well.
sticky!
There's one other big site with game forums that I used to lurk on a fair amount (but never made an account on), and on that site, whenever a topic would be stickied, it would appear both as a sticky and as a regular topic. In other words, the topic would appear twice on the list, once as a sticky, and again in the normal topic list according to when the most recent post was.
