O.P. Half Stickyed (important) threads?
http://shoutbox.menthix.net/forumdisplay.php?fid=14

if you look in general chit chat you'll see that my "Forum Characters" thread is "half-stickyed"

what exactly does that do to the thread?

It means it won't be deleted when a massive spam & shit purge is executed. :P

Actually, the search script doesn't recognize them at all. :p I think that was a suggestion someone made.

The "half-sticky" (AKA "important") distinction exists so that important threads can be easily identified. That helps me avoid accidentally deleting them during mass pruning. Not every important thread can be sticky... that would be a mess. :p

Of course, lately I haven't been doing any mass pruning at all... :^)

It means the thread is quite important, for example, contains useful information.

Oooh I thought it meant something like that. But how come only some of them that say Sticky have a lightbulb and some don't?
