How to ask for a thread to be stickied?

There are two threads in the Yoshi's Island hacking forum that I think should be stickied...

First, the General Golden Egg Discussion Thread. I think that one is at least as important as the existing stickied threads, since it involves questions, bug reports, and feature suggestions regarding Romi's recent Yoshi's Island editor. (Also, it's one of the most often posted-in threads in the forum.)
I posted twice in that thread saying that I think it should be stickied, but no one responded (this sort of relates to my question earlier when I asked which staff members currently check the YI hacking forum)...

And second, the YI Hacking FAQ v2... Yes, I realize that is my own thread. I created a new FAQ because not only is the existing stickied FAQ extremely outdated now since the release of Golden Egg, it was extremely outdated a year ago when I registered here (many questions in it relate to problems in a version of Eggvine before v0.81+, and it didn't contain anything about boss relocation or other discoveries in the last few years).
The reason why I'm asking for a sticky is because since creating the updated FAQ, I've at least twice seen people ask questions that I've already answered there...

(By the way, since after all I am asking for a sticky for one of my own threads, I encourage everyone to judge these threads' quality for yourself instead of taking my word for it (not that I'd expect people to simply take my word for it anyway).)

If a thread seems necessary to be stickied it will be stickied by the relevent moderator. You don't request.

The Yoshi's Island hacking forum has a moderator?
I should get a new layout.

Probably won't, though.

Just because someone is a mod/admin it doesn't mean they are an all-knowing entity, unlike most of the people in websites (normal users and staff) tend to belive. I'd like to remind you they are regular humans as well, and thus, they don't necesarly notice every thread that is good enought to be sticked. The point I am trying to make here is that just because it was sugested by a normal member and not by a moderator it doesn't mean it's worng, so I don't see why these kind of requests shouldn't be allowed, after all, the descion is still up to the staff.

That being said, I pretty much agree with zeldara here, at least on the F.A.Q., allthought I'm not into YI hacking, it seems zeldara's F.A.Q. is more updated than the previous one, considering golden egg has basicly taken eggvine's place and the other F.A.Q. is focussed on eggvine, I don't see why it shouldn't be replaced with the new one. I'm not sure about the other thread thought.
Random input of mine: If the forum did have a relevant moderator (or if there were any staff members who actively posted in that forum; Blumiere and S.N.N. haven't been active there in the past year and I don't know of any other current staff members who are YI hackers), I probably would have sent them a PM instead of posting here...

I posted here to try to attract the attention of the staff members, because I don't really feel like any of them are following the YI hacking forum closely.

(At least, I'd guess that if one of them was following the forum closely, they'd have responded in some way (agreeing, disagreeing, saying they're not sure, stating it needs more time, or otherwise acknowledging) to at least one of those two posts of mine in the General Golden Egg Discussion Thread...)

I still check out the YI hacking forum, I just haven't hacked in so long I have no input with all this advanced stuff going on. SNN never gave me back my YI powers so eh. Go PM him for an input.

Says who? Stop making up rules that don't exist.

I have actually been meaning to put a new moderator on the YI Hacking Forum for several weeks now. It is something I will do by January, I hope. As for these threads (or any other threads that you or any other user feels should be stickied), either PM the appropriate mod or an admin. In this case, I do agree that both threads should be stickied, and will do that now.

I've been under the assumption that it's always worked like that> I've never seen it to be any different.

Haven't you ever seen "sticky requested" posts? Everyone does it when they want the thread stickied. That, or it's asked in PMs or on the IRC.

Well, there is your problem.

It was, but you just blew it.

Oh well.
