    I'd leave this as a modification to be made later down the road.

    css can do a bottom margin on the row and you should have it achieved I think.

    ´╗┐It is very easy to do as stick threads have an additional css variable .

    This. Or through CSS, as mentioned.

    You could place an orange line below the stickies, and a blue one for other topics.

    The reason why Kier has said he doesn't want to separate stickies from normal threads is because members are more likely to ignore the stickies if they don't blend in.

    I do love that mod to be honest, makes it look so nice and I feel is a great feature.

    I personally don't see how they could be ignored easier if they're above all the regular posts. But it is in the communities best interest and aside from that I'm sure that it can easily be made into a mod which I would have no problem holding off on it.

    The code physically separates them into 2 arrays, so you can apply different styling to them as a block if you wish. Fairly minor template change.

    Ya as Mike said its easy to customize it so users would be able to choose their own option :). Nice ideas though.

    IIRC, stickies have a separate CSS class so it would be trivial to style them differently via CSS.

    But also remember the thinking that is behind this, which is stickies should look the same as other threads to encourage members to read them. If they look different then members can get "sticky blindness" and skip over them. Sort of the same reason why Google AdSense has worked so well for so long-- the text-based ads blend in with the page content instead of standing out.

    Yes the 'sticky blindness' is exactly the reason I never did it either. The stickies at our board are all very hot topics, and no one complains about them looking the same as other topics. So I wouldn't recommend this modification either.

    This needs to be a modification IMO, rather than a default feature.

    Editing the sticky class will be so easy.
