Sometimes, you a thread that you no longer want to be the ts for, or a guide, or an essentials topic that's no longer updated, or you have one of those that you no longer want to update. Wouldn't it be awesome if someone could take over for you, similar to how tempbot takes over USN threads? You could pass it on to someone with interest in maintaining the thread. You would send a reqeust and if the recipient accepts, he/she now owns the first post of that topic, while credit is given to you for starting the thread at the bottom, this way, useful threads could stay alive long after the original ts leaves gbatemp. Mods can forcibly handover or take over threads when a ts is banned without permission from the ts. It only works 1 way, to avoid spam, TS/Mod -> other member. Only mods and the ts can send requests. If you aren't the original ts, you can still send a request for someone to take over a thread. This would just require a small modification of the tempbot script. BTW, this shouldn't be availible in the blogs or a restricted sections. Also sticky submit, basically like submitting threads to be front paged in the USN, but instead, submitting the thread to be stickied, this way, useful threads in the not so popular sections (such as the iDevice and mobile phone section) can be stickies withhout too much hassle for the mods.
