Hi Bonita,

A Sticky is a topic, or as we call it, a thread, that is permanently stuck at or near the top of the page. You'll see various sticky's at the top of all the forum areas. Generally, they are like a public announcement, or a bulletin board, or a small library of information about a subject. It's a fast and easy way for people, especially new members and new Lupus patients, to get the facts and vital info they need without having to search an entire website.
