XF 2.0 Get User to Read Thread Before Posting

We have multiple bug report subforums (critical, major, minor bugs), and we have 1 stickied thread in the parent forum that tells users how to format a bug report thread. However, 95% of users don't see the thread.

Any recommendations on how to get users to see the thread? For example, some sort of add-on that pre-populates a new thread's body with the bug report info or an add-on that forces users to read the stickied thread or puts it in their face more directly?

Thank you,
