Can someone explain what "sticky" means? I've been wondering for quite some time, than I noticed other boards use "sticky" too.

(I feel like we're comming back to this "WHAT IS BOO"D???" :p )

A thread is made "sticky" by Karen and/or Paul. A sticky thread will stick to the top of the list regardless of how old it is. It is sticky to remain at the top of the list for a reason - usually because our moderators want to make sure we see them and pay attention to what is contained in the sticky threads, HTH

P.S. The word "coming" only has one "m" it's not "comming" HTH

A good way to think of a sticky is think of it as a post-it note. ;)

We have one at the office where I work - an I-D-Ten-T error (translation: ID10T looks almost like IDIOT) which we use interchangeably with "Duh!" Example: It's windy outside today, but it's sunny, and so I wore my thin raincoat instead of a heavier, warmer coat. That was an I-D-Ten-T thing. Second example: What do I do in (situation)? Oh, wait, I'm being a total I-D-Ten-T. I have a written policy for (situation). Let me look it up.
