I feel like this will likely be knocked down for the sake of "it would just clutter up the ui in threads" but this still is an interesting idea I wanted to throw out there. Letting the op pin posts in there threads so that either a, they show up first right below the op or the more reasonable idea in my idea, b, having it be a little menu you open up from the top of the thread that's just a little button called pinned posts. What do you guys think?

We had such an option called "featured posts", doing more or less what you described, but the idea was dropped shortly after it was implemented, due to technical problems caused by the feature.
Slowdowns, oversights where people could self bloat their points counter, and overall annoyance made the admins remove it.

As Vinscool mentioned, it used to be a feature for a short period of time until it rendered the site nearly unusable. There was an explanation post which I can't quite locate at the moment. I also assume that some people abusing it for e-peen didn't quite help its case either.

those both seem rather unfortunate, well, I suppose it's just one of those features we can't have a feature cause people can't be responsible
