Is it possible to have a faq page pinned to each forum.

Many times i see people asking how to save power, & i always respond with a link to Gammon's page.

It must be possible to index topics & see which have been the most discussed & viewed, and set this as the basis for each faq?

The majority of people don't read the stickies.  Doesn't matter if it was a global announcement that flashed in red in the middle of the screen.  People seem to think that making a post, typing a 2 page report of their problem and then waiting for 1 day or 2 to get an answer that would have easily taken 30 seconds with a Google search.
