Thanks from finding the exact quote, P_I, that looks right and I need to see if they'll roll it back.

You can, of course, change the poster name from the MCP tools
This made me think of a hack, which I'm not sure I'm going to use, but it would probably work.
The goal is to highlight a great idea contained within a topic, in a special highlight forum.
Usually there are one or more posts in the topic before the great idea is posted, because the idea is posted in response to something. For example if the topic is 6 posts long, the great idea might be in post 4.
What could be done is copy the topic to the highlight forum, split it to pull out post 3 and 4, creating a new 2-post topic. Use post 3 as a shell, change the title to a descriptive title, change the author to the forum mod, and change the text to whatever explanation/link you want to include. It would be quick and it would work on the majority of topics.
Usually if someone is posting a great idea as a standalone topic, they give it a title that describes it pretty well, so it does not need any extra post at the beginning.
Just a thought.
