In the DIY forum, there are a few comprehensive and well-sourced topics that have a lot of very useful information.
These are stickied, but they don’t appear at the top of the topics list. They are down there somewhere, depending on the sort order, and not necessarily near each other, either.
As well, they are usually “read,” for me, and so the name of the topic is in grey (rather than black) text, which makes them even more inconspicuous.
One result of this, IMO, is that in that forum at least, people keep asking and answering the same questions. I think it would help a lot, especially for newbies, if these vital posts remained at the top of the list of topics.
