Okay, I've been a member for about 6 months and lately I've been seeing a lot about "stickies". Enlighten me.

Stickies, aka "red stickies" are the forum posts that have red titles and "stick" to the top of the forum so they never fall off the page. We use them to put important posts concerning the forum you're in. They're usually authored by someone at PBS, but occasionally a member will come up with something particularly brilliant or moving and we'll induct it into the Red Sticky Hall of Fame.

A sticky is a thread that is permanent at the top of a forum. In the hidden gem forum, there is a new sticky at the top for hidden gem deals. They are red here at PBS.

Hope that helps.

Yes , indeed, that helps immensely! By the way, how are most of us to know these things?

Ask the librarian.  In the Help Center.  There are some FAQs there as well.  (Frequenty Asked Questions.)  There is also a great page called What's New at the top of the page where they explain new features.  And a whole forum about PBS.
