I am posting this in hope that RR will view this and consider options. 

 
It is a shame this forum is not moderated, and thus there is no ability to "sticky" some threads, so as to be easily referenced by all.  The 500 Day War would be such a thread. 
 
I feel badly for all the earnest (OK, not all of them are earnest) newbies who ask the same questions, day after day after day after day.  It's no wonder they are more likely to be snapped at than answered.  None of us in the business want to waste our time answering questions that have been asked and answered over and over again. 
 
It is also unfortunate that the forum users are not asked for feedback on how the forum should be organized.  Wouldn't it be lovely if there were a section on firms & each thread dealt with one BD?  That would give those seeking to interview or work for a certain firm, to easily find and go back through previous posts and information.  It would be the obvious place to seek that information and would save us all from the multitude of "what about _____(insert name of firm) new threads & questions. 
 
Sorry -- I know I'm talking into the wind.  But this forum is so frustrating, I had to vent.

well said, Old Lady. Lets hope someone takes heed.

I'll third that.  Moderator, Old Lady has some excellent suggestions...think we can get some of those things done?

Ditto, Old Lady. Good recommendation.

As there seems to be some active forum management taking place and with software changes, thought I'd bump this and maybe someone with some power would see it.

Can we get a sticky?

These are valid points.  I wondered the same thing when I first started going through the pages of posts.
