I think it is to keep certain threads at the top so they are readily accessible? Some threads contain information that people look for frequently and the stickies make the threads easier to find? If not, I am sure someone will be along shortly to correct me or at least elaborate more efficiently.
Yes I believe that's true. Most forums tend to have these. Especially "FORUM RULES" or whatnot tend to be stickies so that people have no excuse but to read them haha.. and they won't get lost with the most recent threads that are created each day.
And I think it prevents a ton of repeat threads from being created...similar questions/threads can just be consolidated into a sticky note at the top.
