I suggest having a system where heavily starred posts or posts which have been selected by mods or members as "featured posts" (ones with great informational value to the topic) be tabbed on the 1st page of a thread.
We could also implement a system of sub-folders which would break down individual topics into finer discussions and subgroups.
