    In the 3ds forums, there are a few essential threads that are sticky'd. But here, there are threads sticky'd for individual releases of homebrew! I think we should have a single sticky or a more organized wiki page for wii u homebrew. It's just a thought to make this place more comfortable and less cramped so newcomers won't be discouraged. Also with talks or IOSU hacking potentially on the way, a sticky similar to NOOB PARADISE, could be a great addition to this forum to avoid constant "noob threads."

    PS: Don't hate me and get this EoF'd because I mentioned IOSU

    Looks fine to me. More informative, eye catching stuff is better than only one noob thread and people constantly posting new threads due to the most popular ones becoming burried.

    The purpose of having sticky threads is to make important threads stand out. I personally say that the more important, informative threads there are for anyone to read, the better.

    Eh, I honestly have to agree with the OP. But organization is not my job lol. I don't want to be the guy to tell all the mods how to do what they do best, seems a little jerk-ish. But since someone else brought it up first.. ;)

    the two stickies from 2012 could probably go away or be combined with the more recent stickies of the same topic.

    Maybe bring this back up when IOSU happens (haha sure as if iosu hax is real) and the inevidable sticky happens, since either one of the old threads would need to be updated heavily or somebody could make a huge mega thread that would invalidate the outdated ones. Right now, I think this is okay.

    Honestly, I agree with the OP as well. There's a lot of stickied homebrew threads, and while that's all well and good and awesome, there isn't much reason for them to be. There's no way they're getting buried since there's already a small amount of homebrew on the WiiU, making them forever relevant. And no offense to anyone about Cemu, but what is that doing stickied in a section about WiiU hacking?

    In my opinion, I think it'd look cleaner to have a "noon paradise" thread, one thread about homebrew & developing with links to all popular homebrew, and then one vWii guide (@CJB100's is excellent), one WiiU guide (@fiveighteen is also excellent but needs some updating), the dos and do nots for vwii, and maybe something else.

    But that's just me.
