It means that the topic will always stay at the top of the first page in a section. It's used so that everyone can see useful topics.

It means someone took a pin and stuck it into the topic so it won't move. It's used on important topics like forum rules.

Only moderators and admins can do it. If they see a topic that they don't want to go to the second, third, fourth, ect. page, they will pin it at the top.

yeah, if users had the option to pin, everyone would pin their own topics and it would be identical to how it is now.. 'cept all the topics would have the Pinned: tag, lol.

Not really the best place for this, I'll move it to Network Team.

And as the others have already told you its a way of keeping important topics at the top of the page mainly for reference, only staff members can Pin topics.

That was unnecessary. The last post date was a week ago, and you added no substance to the topic.

Indeed he added nothing to the topic, however instead of you also adding nothing to teh topic you could have just reported his post and let the Moderators deal with it in the correct manor.

The question has been answered so i'll close this one.
