View Full Version : Sticky, poll, etc...

12-05-2009, 12:12 PM
I know what makes a poll different, but what is a sticky. How do they even create polls or stickies? How come I used to be able to see poll results and who voted what, but now I can't?

A sticky is a thread that always stays at the top of the list of threads. Like the ones with forum rules etc.

Stickies are threads that never disappear from the first page of a particular section or all forum sections (if set to global) unless they are un-stickied. They usually contain some important information, like forum rules, announcements and so on. Regular users can't create stickies. As for the question about polls, I guess you're no longer able to see who voted what once you cast your vote (or it's not a public poll).

This is how you make a sticky:

You don't only mods/admins and the likes can.

^The likes?

How come one sticky was closed, but not unstickied? How do people make polls?

shanna_guarana is not a forum leader! Did she make the thread and then one of the mods or admins sticky it?

when you make a new thread, there is a "add a poll" option.

And those threads were locked, but not unstickied, because they wanted people to be able to read them and there is no point in responding to them.

if you are a mod, you have permission to sticky threads, if arenīt mod, forget it!

It's so simple!

so if the mods like a thread, they can sticky it? and i still want to know what "the likes" are!

mod's it's like God... They has the functions (almost all) available

yes, mostly they will do it if its a thread that contains important information or if its a thread that they don't want people to start anymore of. Like there is the interview thread in General Offsping Discussion. If anyone starts a thread about an Offspring interview, it gets moved there. And there is the Welcome Thread in General chat, which serves a similar function for new users to post in.

"mods and the likes"

Means mods and people with similar abilities on this board, like admins.

I can make stickies.

Stickies in your hand?

12-08-2009, 09:59 AM
I think there is an FAQ button right next to the User CP button. I wonder what kind of information you can find there.
