Some threads get lots of play, some get forced.
I'm not making a value judgement with this statement (either has its merits and/or otherwise.)

Choose up to three options.

You can change your mind and re-vote after commentary worms its way through our super-intelligent crowd.

I've never set up a poll before - hopefully I did it poorpprlee.
I notice that increasing the price is getting a lot of play.

Just wanna point out that increasing the price turns it into a boys club - only those with lots of rep can sticky.

Not saying whether that's a positive or a negative. Just pointing it out for posters' consideration.

Not sure how or why this happens.
I'm not complaining; it's an observation. Super-users, I guess.

Maybe a third sticky should cost three times as much.
A fourth sticky ten times as much.

Mods have the capacity to sticky a thread. If they exercise that option through their mod powers, they can sticky ten of em if they choose. 

I generally purchase my stickies the old fashioned way - but when someone posts a topic that I consider stellar, I might sticky that thread even if two are already up - and when one of those two drops, we're back to the limit.

I'm starting to like the 7th option.
Add a way to rate them. Enough down rates makes the stickied thread go away sooner.

I believe they last for 36 hours.
So every "down" rating knocks off an hour.
Every two "up" ratings cancels one "down".
You can only vote once an hour.

SOK MANIA!!!
Stickies last 24 hours, and you cannot do a new one for 12 more hours after your old one drops.

It's choosing a preference from the available options.

You are a little yellow-belly after all. So afraid to live life right in front of you.

You blather that embarrassingly incoherent tripe by the truckload and
yet are afraid to look foolish making a simple choice like this.

Get your meds rebalanced, buddy. Image

It seems lately all you have to do is post "Good Morning" and you catch all kinds of attention from both sides.   :)

I never sticky posts. I let them fall on their own and usually they tend to fall pretty quickly and I understand that. Usually I post pretty much left wing rants. The lefties agree the rightwingers find nothing to attack and so they get little attention but I FEEL better and they SHOULD sink

Is it true that when the Anthropolgy Professor introduced the subject of cranial differences between the races....you pounced on him and tried to chew his face off...?

Here is a card you should carry in your wallet next time you try to discuss genetics with someone who actually made it past the  8th Grade.

why yours last a week in a row. You don't need attention, you crave validation from the obedient.

your post. lack of compassion all over it. You don't care about actual life enough to correct your part of enabling ancestral compounding error. That is on your contextual soul.

Well, I don't know if this is an issue, but if a poster pays to sticky a thread, I don't think any mod should have the power to unsticky it (for no board-valid reason) out of nothing more than smug, personal spite.
