There are some topics which are very useful, but not worth tacking. In particular, there are many cases of this where mods try to put a links to informative posts in one post which is tacked. THe problem is that the threads references disappear after three months.
Two examples are:Optics FAQ threadAmmo FAQ thread
You can see that the links for most of the threads in the Optics FAQ go nowhere, as the threads have been archived. I've BTT'd the threads coming close to archiving in the ammo FAQ thread, but it's a HUGE hassle, and I've lost several posts by not BTTing often enough.
Would it be possible for mods to have the ability to "tag" a thread and prevent it from being archived WITHOUT having to tack it?
