Generally, questions that receive lots of down votes are effectively hidden from the feed - which is probably a good thing. However, this sometimes happens with important announcements posted by staff so it would be good to have a way to keep that information from being suppressed.
One example, is the announcement of the new site theme. I rather like the new theme but, apparently, most other folks don't, which is why the post almost immediately disappeared from Meta's front page - at least, for me.
I agree with Asaf's suggestion that such posts should be tagged as featured and that posts featured on Meta should be pinned near the top of the feed.
