Hi @Mary MKF
Welcome to the Community!
If you and all members of the board use Chrome to view Trello, you can use the Pro for Trello Chrome extension to change the list colours (and a lot more!).
On the topic of keeping a certain card at the top of the list, if the list is organised in date order, you can either put the due date as say 1 Jan 2030, which will keep it at the top if you're organising one way, or 1 Jan 1990 if you're organising it the other way. It just depends on whether you're organising the list in ascending or descending date order.
It can't be locked though, so people can still move it by accident.
On the subject of more colours for labels, this is something that's been asked a lot. But because Trello has a colour blind mode, and works on a strict accessibility code, meaning that it's not as simple as 'adding more colours' - there's a lot that has to be taken into account for creating new ones. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have more colours, but I understand that Trello's commitment to accessibility for all is important as well.
Hope that helps!
I will add to this that I, personally, use all of the above!
I have coloured lists, I have cards in the list that have a checked due date set to 1 January 2030, and I have checked cards set at 2010. So no matter which way I organise the individual lists, the cards that I want, appear where I want them to.
I also use the --- with a full colour cover. If you want these to appear in specific places, you can set the due date on those as well. I have mine as dividers, and I've set the due date on them to be 1am or whichever day I want them to 'stay' on. For example, I have a gratitude log per personal sprint. I want to know which entries I made in which stage of the sprint, so I have --- cards set at 1am of the first day of the new section, so that when I run my Butler rule (every time I add a card, set due to now, mark due date as complete, organise the list in due date descending), the cards will go into the right section.
Just thought I'd add that!
