The reason I suggested a new sub forum was in part what you describe here, it's something that will be posted to little, but probably accessed much, at least for new members. If it's a thread it will just end up at the bottom and forgotten. A sub-forum though would be easily found, especially for new players.
And the reason I don't suggest a sticky is that I think it will be too much stuff in a single sticky. I'd rather have the sub-forum and then a sticky about mod loader, a sticky about how to use texture packs (HD installation and such), a sticky about server mods and a sticky about the TOG allowed mods and how to install them (not necessarily in a zip if distribution is a problem). And then a lot of player threads about their respective texture pack they want to promote.
Mods is such a large part of Minecraft (although I myself hardly use them
) I think it's worth a sub forum.
