How many stickies?

This is a discussion on How many stickies? within the General Discussions forums, part of the Community Boards category; I thought this would be a fun little question to pose. There are thirteen publicly-available, open stickies on this message ...

    How many stickies?

    I thought this would be a fun little question to pose.

    There are thirteen publicly-available, open stickies on this message board (excluding those in the FAQs board). How many of them have you contributed towards? Simply go to each of the sub-forums and count the stickies with the little bent arrow over the envelop and let us know your total. This total should only include stickies that are available to all new members, are currently not closed, are not found in the FAQ Board, and aren't "Board Usage" stickies. Anything regarding "Welcome to * Forum" is included.

    The reason I'm posing this question was because I was surprised at how few I've made a post in given all of my time here. Currently, I only have a post in two of the stickies on the forum.

    You can answer the poll, but of course, I'd like to see exact answers in the replies. I'm curious to know who has contributed most to the sticky topics.

    The stickies included are:NOTE: Polling is public.

    In General Discussion - Bugs (and strange things...) and Game Programming - Post your games here..., I think.

    Because the expectation is that everyone would be giving a reply similar to yours with specific information. In other words, there is really nothing to hide and getting a public list at each choice makes it easier to analyze than scrolling through the thread if you choose to.

    I have two.

    - Some posts in C++ Programming - C++ Book Recommendations
    - A post in General Programming - lots of freeware

    Honestly, I don't pay stickies too much attention. To me they are like ads, in that they get moved to some subconscious part of my brain and it can be months before I remember they are there. Usually because someone posted in one of two I'm subscribed to.

    But I do have material to contribute to these and other stickies. Hmm...

    Oh, there's also The Bugs and strange things sticky. I have a few posts there. So that's 3 stickies i guess.
