(EDIT: I guess this breaks some time-space continuity since I didn't make it into the Alpha registration, but it seemed the best place so far to introduce the concepts...)

Looks like DanTheTimid beat me to originating suggestion posts
Anyways, I registered for Fiesta & found a great innovation in their forums, something called "Stickied Threads" (can be viewed at http://www.outspark.com/forums/showthread.php?t=37619
, although I don't know if you have to be registered or not to view the post). The gist of it is that any helpful threads or posts on technical issues ( those deemed important enough to be located swiftly in a sea of post) are coupled with programming that makes them appear at the top of every page in the thread. Obviously this should be applied rarely to avoid clutter, but when used it can be a lifesaver once thread posts climb into the hundreds of millions
An alternate method might be to link such posts into a special thread designated "Common Critical Issues", or the like; Lupos
is the code-man, I guess, so he may come up with something simpler or more practical than what I could propose.
