is there a way to unsticky very old threads so they get archived?
i made the mistake of posting in the wild arms 2 and 4 sticky post and now those threads clogs my current topic list.
i find it strange that a game from the PS1 era like wild arms 2 still has a sticky thread

Sticky topics will remained stickied for as long as they're left up as a sticky topic. There's no time limit on how long a topic will stay as a sticky topic. Now just because it's an old game does not mean the topic isn't helpful to anyone who may still be playing that game, or anyone who may be looking for help or information since that's what sticky topics are for. It may be an old game but if the information in the sticky is important then it's likely going to stay as is.

You're welcomed to request for the topic to be unstickied if you believe it's no longer an important topic, as that's the only reason the topic may be unstickied. Select "sticky" in the first post and add in a brief note in the text box.
You can observe a lot just by watching.

I see that as an advantage, as if you are looking to have a high "active messages posted" count, those posts will stay active. I tend to like posting in sticky topics if I feel I have info about the respective game that I think would benefit other users.

Delete your posts from those topics and they'll be removed from your AMP.

Tagging stickies is an effective way to inflate your AMP as these topics are rarely unstickied, especially ones on game boards.

Community boards are also another good place to hunt stickies, but they are not as effective at generating permanent AMP as they can be deleted or unstickied at the owner's whim. Some owners also get mad if you tag their sticky. Those owners may give you a harmless community moderation or blacklist you from their (dead) board.

Don't try to think we can understand each other. For some reason, people think that they can do that. Remember that they can't. Never completely. Never enough.

so, if AMP means "Active messages posted", then my goal is that this number reach Zero
none
no activity

and those Sticky topics cramps that
