Those are good points about having pinned threads in All Topics, but I need a solution that works for all dBoard installations, not just this one. For example, a board could have 20 forums, and each forum could have its own pinned intro thread, and then the top half of the All Topics page would be all pinned threads. There may be ways to approach this, though, I'll try and see if I can think anything up. Let me know if you have some ideas.
The link to the POTM thread could instead be to the POTM forum, and the current month will usually be at the top. I'm going to automate the POTM system at some point, it's at the top of my major items list. Unfortunately the minor items list is very long.
Yes, that can be done, and it wouldn't be hard to do, but that list of links near the top of each page is growing long, so if I do this I may change "Board Central" to "CP" (only administrators see this link). Adminnemooseus, does a link for "Pinned Topics" address how you were looking at this issue? Unpinned topics would follow the pinned ones.
Once I get dynamic drop-down menus implemented I can start consolidating links (e.g., Rules and FAQ links in a single drop down), but that won't be soon.
