I remember that the "Stickies" threads were locked in the old software. I could be wrong? It seems to me that they should be so that they don't get cluttered up with general discussion of the relevant subject. I'd suggest that the stickies be locked and a link at the top and bottom inserted directing the reader to a matching discussion thread. The sticky could be updated by the moderators, at the request of members with knowledge and experience in the subject or by the consensus of the posters on the discussion thread.
