For Wine, stickies would be useful for questions that keep getting
asked very frequently. Asnwer it once then sticky it. That way others
thinking of asking the same question will see the stick instead for
weeks, months to come - until you decide there are too many stickies
and unstick it.

Forums generally don't delete messages. Posting to a thread bumps the
thread to the top of the list. A sticky is a message that always stays
at the top, to keep it visible. Usually used for important topics such
as "Posting rules - read this before posting.", but also for FAQs on
issues too temporary to be added to a real FAQ page.
