How to get a sticky attached to a thread?

What is the process in having a thread become a 'sticky' where it stays at the top of the message list?

We sort of do them on a case by case basis for information that should be readily available to answer common questions. Many times if many people have gotten helpful advice from a particular thread (often an article of some sort) they will suggest it become a sticky and then we can make the decision.

Dear Spastic Dove

Thank you very much, I would like to suggest a sticky for a thread in the Natural Horsemanship section

The Simple Foundations Behind EVERY NH Method (including matching CA and PP)

The two qualifiers I see in your reply are:

common questions
helpful advice

I believe this thread encompasses both. I joined this forum nearly a year ago, after viewing it anyomously for some months prior. Definitely 'What is NH' is the most common question, and the replies heretofore have primarily been confusing arguements.

This post is very clear and addresses questions whether they are about a particular promoter, or the general term: Natural Horsemanship.

It is helpful by laying out the differences and similarities in the terms usued by the marketers who are currently in the 'limelight'. Which I feel is how the many people posting the 'What is NH' threads have come to hear about it. So it is very relavent.

There are several positive replies, and example of directly helping a person with 2 horses that are 1 each accustomed to the cues and signals of the 2 main programs. That was very helpful, to the poster and to others I'm sure.

I mentioned suggesting or nominating the thread for a sticky in a reply, and my nomination was pretty much seconded by another poster who said something like - gets my vote.

Thank you again for your time, courtesy and attention. Please bring this to the table and let me know the outcome.

Thank you

It is not my place nor my role here to decide on a sticky - but in general I see (not just here) that people assume that what they have to say is so important. Is it?

I saw a hoof post the other night that was clearly intended to be a sticky too. While there was undoubtedly great info there, I think it takes some level of arrogance to assume that it is sticky worthy?

I believe that if the mod squad want to sticky something, they are more than capable of doing that themselves.

I asked someone a question and for them to post the reply as a thread. I feel the reply was very good and helpful to me, and some other people voiced opinions that it was helpful to them as well.

I was not thinking of a sticky to begin with, and I do not feel the person I asked had anything beyond responding to my inquiry in mind either.

I am really quite timid and was pegged as having an inferiority complex 50+ years ago, don't know what they call it now days, but I don't think it is called arrogant.

The information is basic to what is called Natural Horsemanship, other sections of the forum have stickied threads relative to basic information in their venues. I found it to be very objectively written, neither slanted towards or against any one marketer, nor slanted towards or against Natural Horsemanship entirely.

Only after reflecting on the thread and it's responses did it occur to me to request it become a sticky.

I would like to apologize to the writer of the thread though, as I feel I may have brought some negative feelings towards him/her from others by asking her/him to post in and about a generally unpopular subject matter here.

I do regret that, however I still feel it is worthy of a sticky.
