Stupid question
« on: January 14, 2017, 08:17:43 AM »
This might seem a daft question from someone who has been a member of this forum for many years but why are the top threads in each section (ie above this message) in a different colour to all the other threads?

A moderator has "pinned" the thread, so that it remains visible at the top, regardless of how recently someone has posted to the thread, Jeffrey.

Thank you Karl. Is that because they are considered the most important topics?
Thanks to North Star too.

It's more like they're of perennial interest rather than temporary.

They're "sticky" because the administrators did not wash their fingers after eating Wine Gums.
