Recommended Posts

I have seen this term alot... can anyone tell me the difference between a sticky thread and a normal one, and how does a thread become "sticky"?

It gets placed at the top of a forum so you can always see it even if there are no new posts.

Yes, but why? What makes it special?

If the staff wants people to read it. Or it gets placed there if people are often looking for an answer to something and it's in the thread.

 

Basically if a lot of people look at the thread and reply, it will become a sticky.

A sticky thread for each forum is set by the forum moderators, as it deems necessary by their standards. A thread does not necessarily need thousands of replies and views to qualify as a sticky.

 

But, again, the end-game discretion is up to the forum moderators.

If you're interested in seeing a thread become a sticky at one point, then you can ask the site staff members here.
