    ... and updating those general questions and info threads in the Tarantula Questions & Discussion section.

    Every time a new thread with husbandry problems for these species pops up (and that happens scarily often), I wonder why there's no sticky thread for it, including the two most linked threads on this forum ;)

    Avicularia care by @Venom1080
    Avicularia husbandry by @viper69

    ... and several good example pictures and videos for enclosures from slings to adults.

    It would be so much easier for people to help if we had a thread where all the good info is combined. :)


    I also looked through these both threads in the sticky section

    http://arachnoboards.com/threads/beginner-info-read-before-posting.153508/
    http://arachnoboards.com/threads/quick-reference-guide-to-answer-common-questions.145454/

    but those are old and unfortunately haven't been updated in a really long time.

    For example, @boina's brilliant thread for Ts stuck in moult should be mentioned there as well somewhere.

    http://arachnoboards.com/threads/tarantula-stuck-in-its-molt-look-here-for-advice.306038/

    And I'm pretty sure there're more really informative and newer threads that should be up there as well. :)

    If I get approval, I would really like to clean up the sticky section, un-pinning a few that aren't really needed, consolidating others, and adding an index for care-related threads like the Avicularia thread and the "stuck in molt" thread.

    Cleaning up the stickies section has been a personal issue of mine sine before I became a mod. It's a slower process than you might think, unfortunately.

    It's been a few weeks. Will my post be added? It doesn't take long to add a post at all as sticky. I remember one a couple years ago, it went up in a few days as sticky.

    Working on it ;) I'm just about done working on everything. Likely going to present it tonight.

    I'm in the process of overhauling all of the stickies. Still have to present it to the other mods first. Give me a little time. Feel free to message me with any other threads you'd want included.
