What is a sticky thread?

Couldn't find this in the FAQ. I guess its a thread that stays up top? Do the moderators decide this? What is the deciding factor to make it one?

Am I asking too many questions?

Yup.
Yup.
Mods think it worthy of staying in easy view. Can you imagine if anyone could sticky a thread?... "Wow, my thread about the 45/70 gopher hunt is really cool; think I'll sticky it!"....
Yup..... Just kidding!

I guess its a thread that stays up top? Or near the top. Depends on how many "stickies" there are.

Do the moderators decide this? Generally, it's the mod or mods for that particular forum.

What is the deciding factor to make it one? Mostly it's a judgement call. It could be a topic that keeps coming up, over and over. It could be a topic that is important to that forum. It may be specific rules for that particular forum (the title of the thread is usually meaningful - if it's rules, it will say so).

It's actually a thread that Antipitas dropped a Boston Creme donut on, and we just haven't cleaned up his mess yet.
