Pinning Software threads
What if we had pinned software threads like the sewing machine threads?

So I was thinking after Wendyb posted about Embrilliance what if we had pinned software threads? You know just like the sewing machine brand threads. We could have one for Embird, Amazing Designs, Pfaff 6D, Stitch Buddy, Floriani etc. ( I don't know them all) That way if you are having trouble you could go to that thread, or if you are researching you could read about people's experiences. I know searching for software was so hard because there isn't a lot of easily accessed information in one spot.
Would there be any problems with that? Are there too many? It would be so nice!
Just throwing it out there

We need a "Hip-Hip-Hooray!!!" Icon and also a "Thunderous Applause" Icon. Thanks tkdnrun for the Pin Software idea.

I really like your idea! I really, really, really like your idea!!!

Hopefully this will be implemented soon as I'm always shopping for software to see what's new.

Yes! This idea is even better than the one for dedicated software reviews. Please implement. I use Stitch Buddy and Essentials.

If we pinned every software thread, the forum would become a mess. However, something I thought of a while ago was creating one thread to be a directory thread. From there you would click on links to the different software discussions. However, at the time the only such thread was the Bernina software one. Other threads I found were just basic Q&A and not really an ongoing discussion that would be helpful if it was pinned.

Since there's interest in this, I've started a directory thread and pinned it. Feel free to chime in here with other threads that could go over in the directory post.

Yeah!!!!! This is so exciting
So Pyrose are these going to be links to threads already started, or do we need to start one if we have a software we are interested in starting a thread about?
I'd love to have one/start one on Amazing Designs, that would include all their family of programs like: edit n stitch, personalize n stitch, digitize n stitch, edit it, monogram it and personalize it.
I'd be happy to start one too if that is the process.
I'm not sure how to link past conversations/threads. I'd do that if some one can explain it.

Sorry for the late reply. (Bad migraines lately due to weather.) It can be links to past threads or new ones.
