this forum seems to support sticky posts that stay on top, but this isn't obvious for the user so they may be looking at the first 1-2 posts and see old date, coming to thing no newer posts are in that forum.

also after they add a post, they may be puzzled by not seeing their post at the top

I guess the sticky post feature exists in MonoX itself, so my suggestion is to have an icon (like a stuck pin in perspective projection) to distinguish the sticky posts from the others as done in other forum boards. Obviously the group owner should be able to use that pin (would be a toggle button or have a pinned-unpinned image which is better for skinning) to stick/unstick posts to the board's top

I think your board currently shows the sticky posts separately at the end, but its confusing that the sticky item in this forum shows the keywords differently than the other items below it (others show keywords in some pill graphics on the post item, but the sticky one seems to show keywords as a list under the item which makes you not notice the separation of the sticky from the non-sticky ones - I prefer the pill graphics on the list item for the keywords)
