There are many times I'd like to follow a topic but I lose it when it drops off the main page. If I had posted something in that topic, I can always search for my name and find the topic. But if I hadn't, days later sometimes the topic name eludes me and it's gone.

It would be nice to be able to pin a topic to my main page. Not knowing how difficult this would be to implement, maybe a maximum of 2 topics pinned at a time per user?

Yes, I'd also like something like that. Most useful.

(I made the mistake of typing 'meh' on one occasion for the same purpose as above and found myself in the middle of a right old ding, dong for degrading the fellow's posting. No sympathy either from the 'aggrieved' once I had explained my mistake. Ho,hum – life in the fast lane)

If you can remember the board, you can find it easy enough. Seems like a good request though….

Excellent idea!

That would be very helpful.

Yes. I'd like that too.

Won't happen. TMP is stuck in 1991.

Easy enough when there werent so many specialty boards. I might remember a particular post from a WWII game but is it on the Command Decision board, the Flames of War Board etc.

Does posting and deleting still cause a topic to show up in your author search? That is about all that would be needed, really: a button that tells the search engine "I posted here".

@GypsyComet -- you could do that. Or just post "pin" as a message, but like Blues said, I'm sure that would draw the ire of some.

Even though it is a compliment, right.

It would clutter a discussion, which is why I suggest the other approach.
