Thanks for your suggestions.
so that it doesn't seem like the forum has no new posts
I think, if a forum has new posts within the recent 2 days, it will be perfectly visible (Today/Yesterday
notes appear in bold and make a very good point to the recognition of the fresh stuff).
add a different class/background to such a super sticky table cell
Yes, I know about background, and I already tried it. I think we may wait a bit and see how this feature will be taken by the other users. There is no problem to add a different background, and may be even swapped backgrounds; but it worked for the old-school layout of the forum, when all cells were having a differently swapped background. It's kind of stereotype. In the version of miniBB's layout I'm working out these days, there is no space for swapped colors, and there is no space for the background colors. If I add the background color to the "super-sticky" row, it looks completely out of business.
Actually, when I worked out different customizations, cells having background color always made pain, cause they are quite difficult to adjust both colors to the website schema. In the newer miniBB, I will experiment with no color at all; that makes it even easier to adopt to any existing layout. Let's make the things simpler and see if it works :)

I like Super Sticky
Is it free? or Paid addon?
Super-sticky option will be included in the basic free package of miniBB.
