Is it possible to (temporarily) make a subject 'sticky' in a game forum? There are circumstances where such a feature is useful to have, for example with game author-verified answers to rules questions. Right now, it happens far too often that the answer is lost in the multitude of separate threads.

I simply add them to my QuickBar.
I've reserved the first page to 10 temporary links.

Useful tip, but that's not quite the same. You are required to find those links on your own first, after all.

I am not sure I understand what you mean. You want a way to stick threads you don't even know about?

A sticky is a sticky. Everyone who vists said forum immediately sees a thread pinned to the top spots. Your method only makes the threads quasi-sticky for yourself. Of course one person would need to make the thread sticky, true, but I think that power would be reserved to a moderator or administrator.

I agree that designer-replies to rules questions should be able to be stickied in the Rules forum. For the other forums… not so much.

I can think of some good threads in the DIY forum for example...

If you click on hot, it will order the posts by number of thumbs. Usually, the best answers / interesting questions / author reactions are the most thumbed ones so that whenever you want, you can usually get this information without anyone having to do extra work.

So I don't think we would need this, this is what the thumbs are all about IMO.

Unfortunately, I know of many examples where this is not the case. Really people, stickies are not that great a burden.
