We can often see very good topics that need more visibility. The last example being the TCP stack tutorial by Phillip2.
Each time it happens, Gus is asking for a wiki page and he’s right doing this. But maybe the authors of the topics do not know how to create a wiki page or, like Phillip2 said, the page will be created only after some time.
So, why not creating “Important” topics that would stay on top of the topics list ? Forum admins would tag a post as important when they want so it can stay visible and then, some time after, when the wiki page is done, un-tag the topic so it disappears from the top of the list.
What do you think ?
