Sticky Topics
« on: Saturday 15 January 05 02:39 GMT (UK) »
Some topics are made 'Sticky' by board moderators to draw user's attention to them. 

A sticky topic always appears at the top of a board and will stay on Page 1.  New messages appear below it.  Topics may be made sticky for several reasons:

They may be Important New Information   
Often they are instructions for use of that particular board
They may be commonly asked questions
Or they may be lists of resources

If you receive an email notification that one of your topics has been made sticky,  this is because a moderator wanted to be sure it was noticed.  This may be because it is a question that has not been answered,  or it may be information the moderator felt was particularly useful to other users.  Either way you do not need to take any action,  but feel free to ask the moderator concerned to clarify the situation for you.

And,  If you see a new sticky on a board you use,  it is useful to read it,  you may save yourself some time.  ;D
