Make sure that:

  • Sticky threads are current and relevant.
  • Sticky threads are actively moderated.
  • Sticky question are temporary and you have a plan to remove the sticky element after a period of time.
  • There are not more than 2 sticky posts at a time on the site. Otherwise, the user experience gets degraded, especially on small screens or mobile devices.
