You know that thing where you can sticky a comment to the top of a comment section? It's broken. I keep trying to stick a comment to the top of the comments of my drop-forged bracelet, and it won't "take". I can tick the box, but the comment won't move, and the arrow disappears on a refresh.

Hi all. Sorry if this has already come up (can't imagine that it hasn't), but I didn't find it anywhere so here goes: Who do we need to bribe/threaten/date to get some stickies in Answers for questions like "How do I figure out what resistor to use for my LED" and "How can I hook up a TV to my computer" and "How can I get my Arduino to do an IF statement" and sundry other questions that get asked at least twice a week? I enjoy helping answer questions for people, but I get a little tired of typing the same thing over and over. I can only imagine how burned out the electronics gurus among us must be. Maybe if there were stickies for these types of FAQ on the Answers page people could get the basics on their own, and the quality of the questions might improve? Also, I think a brilliant idea for a Pro feature would be an additional button that just automagically takes the text of a question, runs it through Google and posts a link to the search results, all in one fell swoop. But maybe that's just me....

well, I'm saying that what every member should do is create an editable intro/about of themselves to be put as the first comment on their orangeboards. I got the idea from Gorillazmiko because he did this to his orangeboard (with help from ewilhelm)

There's been a lot of questions concerning bugs about pictures (from mostly new members) recently, and I suggest that we simply sticky a comment or forum topic to the top of the questions page, concerning the current bugs (to prevent these floods of questions). And if not that, maybe a comment after the submit page, something like,"Is this the correct area to post your question/problem? If it involves a bug on the site, refer to the Bug Report section." After all, just a suggestion.

Lemonie sent me the following question asking why he couldn't reply my answer, which had been selected as best answer by the question-author. Here's his question:Hello Eric,Sorry to take up your time with something minor, but why could I not post a REPLY to your comment on this Answer, yet I DID have the option to flag it?https://www.instructables.com/answers/Is-there-any-way-to-get-a-list-of-all-the-instruct/L(My reply to the question is there, is this not what they wanted?)When an author selects the best answer, we make that comment thread "sticky" and move it permanently to the top of the heap of other potential answers. You can only select a top-level comment as best answer, but the entire thread travels with that top-level comment. The thinking here is that an entire thread might be the best answer.Once the answer is marked best and "sticky", we remove the ability to reply to it. This is intended to prevent later comments from being tacked onto the best answer thread, just so they appear at the top of the list. If the author un-marks the thread as best answer, further replies can be added.The same is true of "sticky" comments throughout the site. When we make something sticky, we feel it's important enough to always be the first comment. However, we want to prevent others from hijacking this position with unrelated replies.

My dog had a spinal op,and was recovering nicely. I have polished floorboards that are an absolute nightmare for him to walk around on. The list of remedies I have tried are endless. Dog socks,boots,shoes,mats,balloons etc.I have spent a small fortune with no luck. We have non slip mats around but I can't cover the whole house in rubber mats. I've trimmed his nails short,and the fur between his toes,but I've noticed his paw pads are really dry. I'm trying to formulate something that I can put on his paws that has a tacky feel. I'm no scientist but I've wracked my brain to come up with a solution that is easy to make and not toxic. It has to be something that doesn't taste fantastic because he'll lick it off. As a sample I tried some tacky hair wax..which just gave him a little grip,but it's not what I'm looking for. I know beeswax is sticky,but i think it needs to be mixed with something.I had a feel of surfboard wax,but it didn't have enough tackiness for what I want.I know honey is sticky but don't think I want that all over my floor.Also pine sap is sticky too. I guess i'm looking for something that feels like those silicone non slip dots you can buy that is safe for animals? Any suggestions?

Scenario: you're riding your bike. A car cuts you off. You have a little hopper full of these balls and have the presence of mind to get one out and throw it at the car. It sticks to the car. When the driver gets home, he sees it. Inside of the clear adhesive is a laminated piece of paper or something durable with a link written on it. The driver goes to the website and reads instructions about how to be a better bike-friendly driver. They wash the adhesive off with no damage done to the car. They become more conscientious drivers.

I spray painted a hollowed-out book from Pier 1 Imports using Rust-Oleum 2x Ultra Cover Satin Paint and Primer about a week ago, maybe two, but one side is still a too tacky deal with, but not enough to mess up the coat. One side was the same way for awhile, but it solved itself after I left it sit face-down for a day or two, but that didn't work on the other side. What can I do to dry the paint?

A tranditional dish for northeast Thailand, usually enjoy as breakfest or supper. Blending coconut slices, sugar and white seasame with steamed sticky rice, pumpkin and young banana. God, I wonder how could Thai people eat so much sticky rice at one meal. Anyway, my stomach can't deal with it well. Even I used sucralose instead of sugar, I still feel guity for a such high calorie dish.

I used spraypaint (krylon fusion for plastics) on a material kind of like the plastic ruberry outside of wires, cables, cords, etc. It feels really sticky to the touch and I don't even know if I want it on anymore (I don't mind either way). What's the best way to go about this? If I wait long enough will the paint dry and stick to the material? Or should I remove the paint, and how?
Just now, my bird flew into a flytrap, i got him out of it, got bit numerous times by a stressed bird, HURT LIKE HELL! and now he's sticky, i need to know how to get the stickiness off of him, i used olive oil on his beak to get the stickiness off of that, his head feathers didn't get trapped (thank goodness) but i need to know how to clean him without having to touch under his wings, he doesn't like that. i don't think it got past his down to his skin. He is also sneezing more than usual are sticky flytraps poisonous? there isn't any facts on the package, google wasn't much help either. I AM NOT SPRAYING WD-40 ON MY BIRD. Please help.

I am doing a glass project where I need to find a certain kind of candy inspired by the glass process of millefiori. Sticky candy, a brand in Australia and a few other countries, uses this technique but none of the designs work for me and I don't think they ship to the U.S. or Canada. Anyone know what this candy is called/ other producers of it? Thanks! http://www.sticky.com.au/index.php?Exquisite_hand_made_lollies_and_candy_for_gifts_and_promotions&cat=16 here is an example of Sticky candy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millefiori and here is the glass process I'm talking about. :)

So, I've been wanting to make bottle cap pendants for awhile now, but every time I go to paint the bottle caps using my acrylic paint, it dries all sticky. How do I prevent the paint from peeling or coming off if it gets wet or something? I have some acrylic sealer, but I don't like the sticky texture. Will the sealer make it not sticky?

I'm trying to find out the best method to make a cotton fabric somewhat sticky or tacky ... perhaps the best example of what I am trying to achieve are the identical properties of a 'Football Receiver Gloves'. Criteria:1. Should wash ok without losing its tacky quality. 2. Adhere to itself while avoiding picking up lint or dust. 3. Allow a fabric such as soft cotton to remain soft and pliable.Any help / direction would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance."In a sticky situation"

So, how does one create a comment which cannot be replied? I've seen one example, posted this morning, and it rather surprised me. I know that there is a work around if the comment itself is in reply to something I've written, but I'm still curious if it is a "user-accessible feature." UPDATE: I have learned from Staff that this is a feature of all "sticky comments." Announcements of bug fixes are often flagged as sticky, so they stay at the top of the original bug report. Also, the new "Best Answer" flag will make the associated comment sticky, for the same reason.

I'm very intimidated to post on this forum with all you geniuses but here goes. This is an acrylic holder that you can get from any craft store. I always love this rubber stamping technique as it is so easy yet comes out so pretty every time. All you do is dry emboss a background word stamp with white emboss on white watercolor paper then stamp your image over top. I wet the ink and add a few different colors on top of each other so it looks like an actual watercolor painting. You can fleck some wet ink for an artistic effect too. The paper underneath just slides in. The pen is a Pentel pen so you can open it and put whatever paper you'd like inside. I used a small piece of clear velcro to hold the pen on. Embellish as you wish and voila a beautiful sticky note holder. This technique is great for cards and scrapbooking.

Earlier today, RocketScientist2015 reported a bug with the forum topic lists, that "sticky" topics appeared to no longer be sticky.In addition, it seems that the "last post by " mechanism is broken. The attached three screenshots were taken within the past five minutes. You can see many "empty" fora, including the whole Marketplace (second).There appeared to be a server outage last night around midnight. Could this be fallout from that?

Scientists have discovered the cheapest source of potentially-useful X-rays.Peeling sticky tape emits X-rays strong enough to scan a human finger, a remarkable experiment has shown.US researchers used a motorised peeling machine to unwind a roll of Scotch tape at a rate of 3cm per second.By placing their apparatus in a vacuum, they measured X-rays strong enough to X-ray a human digit, according to a report in Nature journal.It is well known that unwinding sticky tape produces sparks of light that can be seen in the dark by the naked eye.This phenomenon, known as "triboluminescence", is produced by the friction generated when two surfaces rub against each other.The study, by Carlos Camara and Juan Escobar, of the University of California, Los Angeles, USA, provides evidence for the phenomenon, which was first observed more than 50 years ago.
