Just like in Nodes, a simple ability to Sort widgets by drag & drop (left) or simple ability to manually sorting (right) on the main widgets page would be ideal. Right now we have to go into each widget to change their positioning.
One of the problems in the standard forums thread view is that important posts are very often buried from many other posts.
I would like to have a sidebar block a link or a list of links to posts that was voted (with likes) or manually picked more prominent.
Another partial solution to this...
