Some more random suggestions (sorry if they're a little naive):

Can the 'report post' function of the forum be used for this purpose? I mean, it allows one to state the reason
for the report, so it can also be used to 'report' a useful/insightful post/thread to be added to the Documentation forum, no?

It just turns out that a fellow countryman of fxm already coded something that could be used to aid mods/admins on this task: https://www.freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=24922#p222923
. He used it to index the 'Tips and Tricks' section, but I imagine it can be used to index also the Documentation forum ;)
About the indexing: the index could be a sticky topic, that contains the index of the Documentation forum built with the tool mentioned above. And in the Documentation forum itself, the relevant threads are kept separated as usual (to allow discussions/clarifications/modifications), and tagged if it needs be (we can agree on a limited number of them, for ease and consistency). The index can also be used to browse over interesting content, much as I use the post by Tourist Trap right now...
@coderJeff: thank you for your prompt assistance on my little issue.
