    Hello, this is me asking if we could make the Rape, Sexual Assault and Harassment Survivors thread a sticky in ITA.

    The thread is the oldest active thread in that subforum, going on since February 2015 and rarely leaving the front page anyway. It's become a small community of its own, and a source of mutual support and encouragement. I'm proud to say (as its creator and unnofficial-mod-sorta?) that in almost a year and a half of dealing with a very difficult topic we have had zero nastiness or drama. Not only that, the thread provides a space for way too many people who feel their situation is "not important enough" to warrant its own thread - and despite the fact that there's no such thing as "not important enough", minimizing abuse and rape is a component of trauma, and therefore the people who express these feelings are often the most vulnerable and thus most in need of support.

    In view of that, here is why I would like to sticky it: today, someone posted in R, SA and H and said they were "ressurrecting" it, and it made me think that maybe, if the thread goes without posts for a few weeks, people who would really benefit from it might feel intimidated by "ressurrecting" it. Stickying it might help give people the feel that the thread is a permanent fixture and always available to help - which is exactly what I intend for it to be.

    In general, I don't like to sticky things that aren't forum-meta, but in this case, I think it's a good idea.
