Default Stickie?

What is a stickie? I see that on a lot of thread titles.

Here's my take on it - someone else may have a different idea.

When a thread says "Stickie" it is usually something that has general interest for a lot of people, and is ongoing. When it is a "Stickie" it says open at the top of the forum and available for people to read and post to.

Some I can think of are tools, like the Cuttlebug, or the ATG tape gun. People who are new still have questions and comments about those kinds of things, so the thread is made a Stickie (I think the mods make the decision about that.)

Normally, threads move up in the forum when people post to them, and go down when they don't have posts and people lose interest. The Stickie threads remain at the top.

That's exactly it, Bugga. Also generally the current week's challenge in the various challenge threads is a sticky...and the weekly favourites threads too (that's usually some time on Sunday, so a few hours after they are posted).

Think of it as a sticky note stuck at the top of the list.

Now I've always read that BUMP was an acronym for:
BRING
UP
MY
POST



Then again, YMMV! (Your mileage may vary)!

LOL! But what if you type "bump" to keep the thread visible? Is it the thread you want visible or the post that says bump? ; )

YupI know. ! I was just teasing about bump meaning something else to some people. Just being dumb, not unusual.

What does O. T.mean? I've seen it twice in the same thread and can't figure it out, which probably means it will turn out to be something simple!

That's one of the first ones I figured out, Kathy, because I do it all the time! It means "Off Topic".

Except for (actual stamping acronyms, for example) wouldn't it be nice in life if people actually used real words so everyone could just understand them? After being in the military and also spending time on the internet I feel my life has become one big acronym. YKWIM?

The list in the first post of this thread will be a huge help to me as a relatively new stamper. Thank you so much.

Yes, I know exactly what you mean!


But I'm learning new things everyday, I never thought I'd know so many strange things in my old age.
