Personal Stickies are now available.

What is this?
-You can now *stick* threads at the top of the forum page for easy access. Mods still can sticky a thread for everyone, but now you can force you favorite threads at the top for your own personal use as well.

How do I know the difference?
Mod sticky =

Personal sticky =


Shweetness - How do I do this?
The *thread tools* on every thread has a "Stick thread to the top" or "Unstick thread" option.
Example from another forum (see attached):

Threads will only sticky on top of the page they are currently on.

For example:
If you stickied a thread on page 3 it will only show up as a sticky on page 3 of the forum display.

The author is looking into a fix that will make it always on the first page always without increasing overhead.

Wouldn't that be rectified by posting to the thread first, forcing it to go to the first page, THEN making it a sticky?...:confused:

True, but the intended use is to find your favorite threads faster in case no-one has responded.
