Feature request: Thread prefix & option to sticky

I'd like to enable setting a default thread prefix for new posts. For example, we like to use JUST IN: (Thread title here).

We'd also like the ability to default a "sticky" thread option so the new post is stickied in the forum it goes to.

This is useful because it lets post threads stand out from regular conversational threads.

Would such a thing be possible?

Thanks,
B

Hi Bernadette, thanks for the suggestions!

I have heard thread prefixes before and will consider it for a sooner release now that you have also posted. The way I see it working is similar to how you enter forum IDs and will have a new tab for "Prefixes" where you enter the ID and name of the prefixes on your site. From there you will be able to select them from the create thread meta box in the post editor.

The sticky option is also very easy to implement and since this is probably a less commonly used function I am contemplating whether to hide it under a "Thread tools" menu with a couple of other utilities.
