I would like to request that a topic gets pinned. In the Sex Basics and Sexual Health board, there is a topic called Your First Time created by Gumdrop Girl. I really like her topic and I feel that this should be a permanent topic for everyone to share their first time sex experiences as well. Most of the people are very detail oriented as well.

The problem with that is this: eventually, threads get so long that they need to be closed, and a new one started (that particular thread is already the second or third on that topic). Threads that get pinned up are usually not those that generate a lot of replies - it's mostly the FAQs, important notices from the staff, etc.

Hey Adviceguy, I'm glad you like my topic. i don't think it needs to be pinned though. It tends to propagate itself pretty well. Sure, it sinks every once in a while, but whenever I put it up, it stays up for a while.

Of course, it might be worth putting in the FAQ. is it in there?
