Sink Thread?

    Is it possible for an individual to sink a thread, so that in their list of threads, a sunk thread, regardless of how active it is, can be made to drop down the list as people post to other threads?

    There are a few threads that keep popping up like bad pennies (eg. “Should Apple license Mac OS X”). It would be nice to be able to banish them.

    No, that’s not a feature.  We encourage people to post in the appropriate forum, but most activity either occurs in 1 Infinite Loop or Apple Finance Board. 

    One thing that could be possible is a topic chooser.  I could design a feature that displays all current topics, but only if they are from a forum that a member is ‘subscribed’ to.  It would require people post in the appropriate forum, but wouldn’t require people to visit every individual forum.

    Perhaps this would be a good time to start a discussion how these boards might be better organized?
