    Mike, a sticky is something the mods do to make a thread stay at the top of whatever forum it's in ,so it doesn't get lost in the multitude of threads that come after it.

    I don't have this personally archived for myself.

    By me making it a sticky on the board, it will always be at the top of that forum to reference.
