Sticky topics are designed to always stay on top of the topic overview. A sticky post (or sticky thread) is a feature of many online forum and bulletin board tools. This allows a post to be stuck or pinned to the top of the screen. If it wasn't pinned in this way then it would slowly be displaced by more recently posted items that are moved to the top to indicate activity. Generally, normal users can not create sticky topics, but moderators and administrators can.

Ah, too bad. Darn shame because vBulletin is a very powerful package, and pretty much a standard for message board systems.

But I feel your pain. All upgrades and server moves are a real pain in the butt.

Good luck!

And me hopes that stickies will be used sparingly, for sure, I can't stand to go to forums with numerous stickies!

Of course they will be Bill. I do not want stickies dominating the posting listings. And even when I do post stickies they usually won't be permanent.

Xmas/New Year has delayed this upgrade somewhat but it will be happening very soon.

As long as by then you've taken off the Xmas ornaments, Nigel. They usually get around doing that around July or August here in Taiwan. No kidding!

Best wishes for 2011!

Yep, that is also a UBB Threads forum. The changeover sort of got held up because of the holiday season but it definately is underway.
