    Hi Pebbles

    "Sticky" refers to "sticky note" that you might use at work (write on it and it will stick to a wall, etc).

    so it refers to an important notice that many may find useful or interesting.

    WELCOME to the board!

    In the internet world it also refers to a popular or important post being put up as a "sticky" meaning it always remains at the top of that form. If you look at the top of most forums, you'll will see the "sitcky" posts, they have a "thumb tack" in them.
