The problem with stickies is they tend to be passed by as people scan the the Section Thread list, especially if nobody is talking in them (like Polls) and they don't highlight. A simple post in a thread highlights it and brings it back to the top. I have been watching the thread and was almost ready to do it, but Raptor has an itchy trigger finger.
I'm not about to code in a link for an expiring Poll. I have more serious things to deal with in the time I have here. It'* summertime and I have a life away from the keyboard. It has 23 votes in 3 days already and a clear leader. I think it'* doing well.
