Do the moderators have the ability to sticky posts or just the admins?

For example in the General discussion area we have realneil's how to post your photos thread and unfortunately it keeps getting  bumped to the bottom as new content is coming out. I think this would be a great post to sticky in the general forums and I am sure their are a few others.

I agree. Though I'm guessing it's only the admins who can do this seeing as how our realneil is a moderator and well; his post hasn't been stickied.

Dave, Marco; get to it!

It's a good suggestion.

Ask and ye shall recieve.

I talked to the powers that be and they are going to sticky my thread. I like how responsive they are about our requests.

Also,....in the future, Mods may have the ability to make this happen.

EDIT: It seems that we moderators ~do~ have it in our power to sticky a thread! If you're in the Mod-Squad, go to the "MORE" tab on the original post and select "EDIT" from the drop-down menu. Once the Edit window is open you select the "Options Tab" and in there is the "stickiness" menu that has the proper setting in it. Thanks for schooling me Dave!
