Stickying comments

Edit: As per a suggestion by @Miss_Peacat, this feature should instead be called “pinning.”

I was getting some comments on my greenlocked contest about joining, even after signups had ended. I thought about making a comment saying that you can't sign up anymore but I realized that it would just get drowned with other comments and no one would see it. Then I got an idea. What if I could sticky a comment?

This would be where the owner of a project has a comment option other than report and delete. The new option would be “sticky”, and it would make the comment always stay at the top of the comments section, and maybe also have something that says “stickied”. This would allow people to make announcements in comments.

You might think, “can't you just put it in the description?”. Yes, you could, but people often don't look at that. When people post a comment, they are likely to see the last comment posted, especially if it has a little symbol by it saying stickied. This would allow people to easily relay information to would-be commenters.

I hope you implement this idea and if you're another scratcher, be sure to reply something like “support” to show the scratch team that you like this idea!

FAQ
Q: Couldn't this be used as spam, like for using too many stickies or other types of spam (ascii, f4f, etc.)?
A: Yes, however only the owner can sticky. If they really wanted to ruin comments, they could just disable them.

Due to it being impractical at this point, the list of supporters will no longer be listed. About 90% of messages at the time of edit are supports or partial supports.

No support, someone could create lots of spam stickies that take up the enitre comments section.

He said owner, but maybe have it only ONE sticky comment at a time! And instead of “sticky”, this could confuse some people, maybe make it something like “permanent”.

I'd love to see this idea!!

If I said no support highlight this from “Hi” to “AWESOME”:
Hi this isThink about your suggestion, was it going to benefit a majority of scratchers, did it have cons to a specific group, was it fully based on YOUR opinion, did you put some thought into the idea, simply forgot to read the sticky, has little pros, no purposeful reason, was there something wrong with scratch? If any of these apply to you think about your post, either revise it or close it.AWESOME
If I said support highlight this from “Hi” to “COOL”:

The owner could still fill it up with loads of spam comments

Well why would he want to do that?!
And possibly make it so that ONLY scratchers can do it.

Maybe spamming advertising for their own projects, or even just stickying all of their own comments on it. Having a limit would stop them, and if they wanted to advertise they would have to use the description.

If it's his project, he can advertise others, I've seen millions of people do this…

1. Only the owner can sticky comments.
2. If the owner wanted to jam comments, there is a disable commenting button.

Sticky is the official name for it but I guess renaming it isn't that much of a problem.

You could make a comment then close comments? No support.

Did anyone tell you I was a Time Lord? You should know. I live in Fourtrees, with my good friends Germany, England, America, and my fellow pokemon Skitty and Delcatty. We go to Hogwarts and battle Titans.

What if you want people to be able to comment, you just want them to read your comment first?

That is what the report button is for. People can comment that regardless of if it's stickied or not.
