Yes, that can obviously be done but it seems that you just assumed this was going to be done and automatically did the tracker ticket. Just an observation really since that is not the common practice for RFCs here because it creates yet an additional place to discuss these things.

I think that an Improvement ticket is acceptable at any point. However, if you also start an RFC to discuss things, a link from the ticket to the RFC is a good idea (I added a comment to the ticket linking back here for this one). That might help the dual discussion problem. :)

"At the moment if you lock a topic it stays where it is in the forumlist order. However quite often this is accompanied by a reply; meaning you get locked topics pushed to the top of forumlist.

This would be a per-forum option and would display the locked topics after the unlocked topics."

It's perfectly fine to create a ticket immediately so that one is able to work on a proof of concept implementation which requires a ticket id exist to refer to in commit messages. As mentioned above the ticket will just be closed if the result of the RFC is not to pursue a proposal further.

I don't like this idea as a core feature.
I do like to have appropriate events that allow making an extension for this, though.
This is really useful for the ones that have a bulletin board and uses a forum form that bulletin board as a support "ticket" system. When it's closed, then all is solved and may be sent to the end of the list

So what about adding new option when creating new forum? I do not think there are thousands of them now (like general options), so adding one more (which is really helpful one!) would be great...
