A topic created by you on an online forum or in an Internet chat can be selected from the general list, making it important. This way, your topic will be pinned to the top of the list, regardless of when the last post was written to it.
Create a new topic in the section you are interested in by clicking the corresponding button. You should first check if there is any similar to yours among the themes created earlier. Pay attention to this so as not to repeat yourself. To check, use the convenient search function or the query string that is present in all forums and chats. Otherwise, if you create a topic that already exists, the moderator will most likely be forced to merge two of the same topics into one. Make sure that the title of your topic is fully consistent with the general idea of the section in which you are adding it, so that it will not be moved to another section in the future.
Examine critically directly the information you provide in your messages. For a topic to be marked as important by a moderator, the information in it must be important or frequently used by forum users or chat visitors. Try to deepen your knowledge in this area using additional sources. These can be books, films and TV shows. Create only a relevant topic and try to find exclusive, updated information on it. Then there is a high probability that a fresh topic will receive the status of an important one.
Maintain a discussion of the issue that is revealed in your topic. Of course, you must be sufficiently informed and understand what you are proposing to discuss. Be actively involved in the communication process at all times. You also need to answer questions from visitors and help them in matters in which you are competent. Site users, seeing that the topic is constantly updated, will join its discussion. This will do you good too. A popular and useful topic has every chance of becoming important, and your authority on the forum or in the chat is sure to increase.
