What's the point of this?
This allows you to pay a little gold to have your topics stickied. All gold spent on featured topics is used as prize money for forum events such as Signature of the Week and Avatar of the Week. If featured topics generated enough gold, you may see more events being created with bigger prizes.
Submitting a feature request:
Send the gold to me with a link to your topic.

You send me gold, and I set your topic as featured.
How long after I pay will be topic get featured?
Featured topics will likely be updated around noon(-5gmt).
How many topics can I feature?
Everyone can initially feature 1 topic, upgrading to a max of 3. To increase the amount of topics you can feature, the cost is 250 gold, and you can only buy 2 extra slots.

One week. After a week your topic wouldn't be featured and you would have to pay for more featured time.

No. Only the topic creator can pay to have it featured. If you want to help pay to feature a topic, send the gold to the creator.
Will I be notified when my topic gets featured or when it's time is up?
No. You can keep track yourself, I won't bother to notify players about updates to their topics.
I sent too much gold, please send it back?
No. I feature the topic for however many days the gold will pay for, any extra 5 or 10 gold won't be sent back.
I changed my mind and don't want my topic featured, please refund me?
No. Your chance to think it through is the time before you submit the gold transfer.
