Sticky topics function broken?


Is it possible that the sticky function for topics has broken down for some subforums?
I set this thread sticky a long time ago (and re-did it today to be sure), but it is not on the first page of the resources forum.
Any chance to fix that?

it’s showing up as first for me (and as a sticky)

We are planning to upgrade the forum this weekend so hopefully that will fix it if it is still broken

edit: just realized how old the topic is - spammer triggered a notification
