How does a thread become a sticky thread?

Re: How does a thread become a sticky thread?

I don't have any hand in running this place, but here's my impression:

An administrator or moderator finds out about the thread, reviews its content, and makes a decision that that content is important enough that every visitor should be shown that thread specifically rather than needing to look for it. It isn't just about high quality, though of course that's part of it - it's also about a thread's more-or-less universal relevance. In general, threads that are primarily questioning or mostly about scientifically controversial material would not become sticky, because those would be more suited to ongoing discussion than to presentation as a sticky thread.

Re: How does a thread become a sticky thread?

Interesting thanks.

I wonder why there isn't very many sticky's in the science section at all?

I hope someone knows; I don't.

generally speaking, you send a request to the section moderators and they decide whether a thread will be a sticky.

i can't speak for how that works in the science section, but in treatments, threads that are stickied either have posting information or guidelines reminders, are prescribing sheets for medications, or have been very popular and generated considerable interest from multiple members who want to continue to readily access the thread (examples of the latter are "experiences with ___ medication" or the memantine thread).

i suggest you contact those in science to see what the process would be.

hope that helps xx
