it sounds painful whatever it is. can't find it in your FAQs and yes i did look.
A sticky is one that stays at the top of the forum/thread list. If you want a thread that you post to be a sticky, you have to plead with one of the mods to get it made sticky. Or bribe them if that's the way you work
Bribes! :shock: Of course we take bribes - £10 usually! . . . . anyway just to show you exactly what a 'Sticky' is, I've made this a thread a 'Sticky' - For FREE!
Typical capitalist attitude from Mr Thorne there. I hope he shelled out and bought his winning band a drink
(I won't even mention 1 glass and straws)
This is my 1900th post. Might as well live dangerously
Ta Mike, I'll let you off your other post for being so helpful with this one.
Now, off to smarm up to the mods to make a one of my posts sticky, gooey and generally gungeworthy...
so why is it called a sticky?
...because that is the generic name for a Post-It note
I though Post-it note was the generic name for a post-it note...
Was that an unnecessary post to increase your daily average, Lynchie? :-D
Because it "sticks" at the top of the page, and doesn't move down in deference to more recent postings.
... just like a Post-It note!
Unless you stick it at the bottom of a page! Or middle. Anywhere but the top, in fact!
To answer lynchie's earlier question about the generic name for a Post-It Note, be aware that Post-It is a registered trademark of the 3M Corporation. The patent on the glue (which is the important part) ran out a few years ago, so generic sticky notes are now sold, but Post-It refers to ones sold by 3M only.
Robert, you haven't got a solicitor's soul in a box in your office, have you?
Stick and it will stop
To be really offensive, Kirsty, you might try spelling it peasant!
How stupid am I then? i thought it was called a sticky because it got stuck and didn't always load properly so i tended to ignore them.
Separate names with a comma.
