Default Why No Special Stickies for Solved Problems?

No doubt, this has already been done, and I'm just a wee bit too stunned to have
found it. However, when a thread related to a problem runs on for dozens of
entries or even dozens of pages of entries, and if a solution is found for the
problem, why not have a link to that solution posted in a very easily found place
near the top of the thread or even in a separate thread of solutions. For example,
in trying to get an Ubuntu system to use the nVidia nvnet network driver rather
than the standard forcedeth driver, I stumbled across this thread:

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=57791

On page 23 of 28 pages of entries, in entry #337 of 410 entries (so far),
there is a reference to this link:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=86125

which in turn points to this beautiful explanation of how to get the nVidia
NFORCE nvnet network driver to be used in preference to the forcedeth
driver that comes standard with Ubuntu:

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/NvNetInstallationHowTo

How handy it would have been to find that in some sticky thread of solved
problems.

By the way, the nVidia nvnet driver rocks! No more system lockups on our
Asus A8N-SLI Premium mobo during large network transfers.
