    Would it be cool to start posting Game of the Week polls in the core iOS games category? If so, would moderators help sticky it there (as has been done in General Games)?

    Hey... make me a moderator and I'll make it happen plus precision scalpel through some spam while I'm at it.

    Not sure if this needs to be sold but here's a try: Some exceptionally brilliant forum member suggested that the Game of the Week polling on the forums would get more nominations and votes if it was sticky-ed to the top of the iOS games forum instead of the "General Games Discussion" blackhole that fewer people get lured into. I'm arguing that Game of the Week nominations and voting is actually relevant to specific iOS games more so than it is "general discussion." I say moving to the more relevant section and getting more exposure is justified because finding hot new releases and discussing them, as GOTW polling is an example of, is a core part of the TA experience. GOTW voting is a years old institution on TA spearheaded by numerous torchbearers over the years so is reliable.

    Thanks in advance for any consideration.

    I'll gladly take care of sticking/un-sticking the threads for you. If I'm not around, just hit me with a PM and I'll get my ass on for the half second it takes to stick a thread. :p

    EDIT: Moved this week's thread to test the waters.

    Thanks, Echoseven... Sometimes its hard to tell who is making thing happen behind the scenes but it's obvious you didnt make moderator for nothing.

    I think it might look nice under the hot games section. It might get more attention in that location.
