Questions

A stickied thread will stay at the top of a forum page, unlike other threads which will fall back as newer threads are posted... Normally, a stickied thread holds importance...

Next time you log in, check the "Remember Me" box and you will be all set :)

That remember me box does not help me sometimes.
I still got to log back in and then you lose all new posts.:confused:

B&M and TwoRail,

Can any Mod create (or transfer to) a Sticky Thread, or only you guys? Stillakid has asked me about creating one, and I don't know how on my end.

Cheers,

TJ
