Earlier today I implemented a few long over-due features into the forums, here's a summary:
Moderators can now elect for a topic to become 'sticky' within a particular forum, meaning topics will be sorted by sticky, then last posted timestamp.
Improved Email Notifications
Gone are the boring text emails when watching a topic, these have been replaced with the HTML style emails you may of seen for other alerts.
As per the article comments, email notifications will now be sent to anyone you @mention in a forum post, or topic. Providing they have the alert enabled in their preferences.
Inline Watch Topic
You can now elect to start or stop watching a topic directly from the reply form, making it easier to enable/disable this feature.
You can now 'Watch' a forum, which will sent you an email notification whenever a new topic is created in that forum - for example, I'll always get an email when someone creates a topic in the 'Feedback, Ideas & Suggestions' forum, you may always want to know about new topics within the 3DS forum etc.
Moderators can now elect to archive a topic, this simply hides it from the normal forum listing, although the topic is still accessible (its not deleted). Archiving also locks (no further posts), we will start auto-archiving old topics that haven't had a reply in x months shortly.
Hurray! There should be a few more additions over the weekend.
Thanks and Happy Gaming!

@CrimsonFire13: Check out any console-based section of the forums, i believe i've got all the Recommendations threads stickied by now. There's a yellow star on the thread icon for a stickied thread, and any stickied thread will stay at the top of the forum page, no matter when the last reply was. Stickying a thread makes important threads much easier to find for new users. :3

YES! This is a great update! First off, the stickies are nice so users don't keep making a bunch of friend code things and all that (even though they probably still will). The @mention notification should be super useful as well.

No problem guys... I've made a number of speed-related improvements to the forums today, hopefully they should be running quite a bit faster, which helps the servers..
Let me know if anything weird happens

@Ant A small suggestion I have would be to change the backdrop on a sticky topic, so it can be even more noticeable. I know there's a golden star, but it's all the way on the far left and can be easily missed at first glance.
Just a simple aesthetic tweak, I think. I'm totally fine if you choose not to add it.

@Ark_Sin sure, I can have a look at the icons, probably time for some new ones
16. Posted: Sun 26th May 2013 20:47 BST
@antdickens I was actually talking about the background of the title itself, but the icon works fine too!

New sticky icon looks nice. Also, do you guys have the capacity to move topics now? I could've sworn one was moved...unless it was my imagination?

@CanisWolfred yeah, it's possible for moderators to move threads between forums... they've been able to for quite a while now
