Default Old content should be removed!

One thing that I find constantly frustrating is the mix of old and new content on the boards whenever I look for something. This is exacerbated by the fact that on every board, tacticas, guides, and articles from previous editions and previous codeces are stickied for what seems like no reason other than to annoy us.

The old content from previous editions has lost all of its purpose. It no longer applies to the game, nor is it what anybody would willingly look for. I can already hear the voices saying "But it's not ENTIRELY irrelevant! An extremely small percentage of what's said in the guides is still correct!". That doesn't make it helpful.

It would be nice to see NEW stickies posted with relevant content and guides only. It might even inspire people to start writing new content for them, with the hopes that their new tactica will be featured instead of "Orks vs. Squats".

And what, pray tell, do we replace them with? Half the reason (more than half, in fact) the old Tacticas aren't removed is there's nothing to go in their place.

Indeed, I know for a fact that the Black Templar tacticas at least have become even MORE relevant in 5th edition, the tactics have not really changed, they've just gotten better.

It also requires many many hours of writing and lots of submissions. Maybe try submitting some things?

Also, flag anything that you think is not needed (saying why) and it may be removed by a mod.

Wargamer, replace them with anything. You don't walk around carrying a 40lb rock just because you haven't found something more useful of the same weight. Useless is useless is useless, and the fact that the old ones are still up there is pretty discouraging to anybody who wants to post new material. I wouldn't even be able to tell the difference between old and new material if both were stickied, thus ruining the value of any new material if the old stuff isn't removed.

I'll submit stuff if I know that it won't end up in the crapjumble that's already up there.

A lot of the stuff is still relevant.

I don't see the congestion your complaining about.

Thirded. Virtually nothing has changed from 4th to 5th, the tactics still stand. Out-of-date Codex tactics are gone now anyway.

Crikey! This crazy clown causes commotion like the coming of Christ.

Certainly, still a curious and cordial cavalier in the countenance of crazed cads, curs and creeps who condemn courtesy as something corny. No cloud could collapse his crushing crescendo of comical crowing and crimson coiffure. This conjecture on culture comes circumlocutive, consequently...

You may call me Circus.

Like I said, flag what you think needs deleting.

What if the thread titles were changed so that they say, for example, Tactica: *Insert name here* (X edition)? That way we can keep old content for people who want to read it, but people who aren't interested in old content can tell from a glance whether or not they want to read it.
