Can I lock a thread, but keep it at the top of the thread list?

Like a general information thread.

Cheers,

Not in a Classic Forum, but in Zeta forums you can create an announcement that shows to everyone the first time they enter the forum.

Oh, Cstar!

I have the forum in Zeta.  It's a long story, but it is an emergency forum for hundreds of BFG refugees who are losing their forum home.

It is my second forum, and still under construction.

It is a forum dedicated to a FTP game.  So some threads are strategy guides, or quest lists.  I would hate for them to be buried or lost because I locked them.  I know the simplest way to keep them active is to bump, but that is a risky prospect in what is proving to be a VERY busy forum.

Just one week of no bumping and all that work is lost to the void!

Also, while I host this new forum - and it showed originally as one of my hosted forums - it has slipped down into my favourites list, instead of up top, where it should be.

Have I done something wrong?

Totally appreciate any help you can give.

Cheers,

Jenifer

1. - The announcement can point to your locked thread. You'll need to renew it monthly but that's it.

2. You probably clicked on Follow - In Controls, under Settings click on Ownership and Status. Where it's asking for New Owner type in Zarknorph and hit Update. If that does not work let me know.

I DID click follow.

Love you, Kid!

So how do I create an announcement that stays "sticky"?

Cheers,

A Guide to Zeta Forum Controls can be found here

The process is pretty straight forward but if you need better instructions let me know here and I can do them after work.

There was a small disclaimer at the bottom...

I am asking for assistance.
