I've pinned a few more topics, based on popular threads from last month.

There are a few other popular states (NY, NJ, OH, etc.), so I'll pin those too if someone would like.

Also, you can request a pinned topic, but if a thread does not see much diverse activity (i.e., if just one or two people post on it during the month), then I think it makes sense as a normal thread.

    Todd - what does "pinned" mean?

    love to nibble those micey feet.

      Check the Pick 3 forum and look at the very top.  The pinned topics will stay at the top until I un-pin them.  It is a way to make certain topics easily accessible for all, and it is typically done in forums for topics with universal appeal.  In my little experiment here I am trying it with topics directed at certain popular states.
