  6. Since @Kedreeva hasn't done anything with this thread in over six years I think the moderators should probably delete it.

    Perhaps, but if this link is referenced in other posts and people click on it, the link won't work.
     
  10. Zero useful information in this thread. Kedreeva meant to use it for a teaching tool but there has been no discussion or any useful information disseminated in the last six years that would make it valuable for a Stickies learning tool.
