Yes, Bob - it really would be a good idea.
Such an obviously good idea that I've been waiting for years to see if it'd sink into Adobe's (or more likely Jive's) heads to do something about it.
I guess you've cracked!
There was an accessible and useful FAQ at the top of an earlier incarnation of this (horrible) forum software, but after an "upgrade" it suddenly moved somewhere really hard to track down and most of the useful content disappeared from it.
I wonder if Jive gets paid by the number of posts in the forums it runs for its clients? That'd explain a lot...
and to be honest, while I mention it frequently, even the forum search is horribly unintuitive to use.
It was your reply on another thread today, telling someone to do a search, that prompted me to post this!! I read the Windows Eight and Ten forums a lot, and that is where I see the usefulness of it. For instance, Eric Chan's answer to the GPU questions should be up there for everyone to see, as should the current Import problem thread.
Moderators should be free to make threads 'sticky', and to remove them when they have outlived there usefulness.

Yeah, I figured that, Bob - and you're right, it's completely standard practice pretty much everywhere else.
