What the title says. If you go into a pinned topic and read all of the posts, it will un-pin itself and you need to manually re-pin it it again. This is with both global pins and normal pins.
Have been experiencing this over and over again. We tried removing the pin and substituting it with a Global pin to no avail.
This is a new feature – to prevent pin-itis (users having to wade through multiple pins every time they view the topic list, 24/7, 365) topics are auto-unpinned for that individual user when that individual user reaches the bottom of the topic.
You can disable this in your user preferences, or it can be disabled site-wide if the admins prefer.
If you do want to reset the pin for everyone, even people who have explicitly dismissed the pin, you can un-pin and re-pin.
Pinned topics keep unpinning themselves for me [Resolved]
Alright, so that’s what that was. It was driving me crazy trying to re-pin the things over and over again and to no avail. User preferences you say? Got it!
If they don’t want to sift through all the pinned topics why don’t they just unpin them themselves? That sounds like a better option then me being confused the last few days constantly repinning things in anger and confusion.
Okay, I don’t understand why the auto unpinning is even an option. It’s not like there’s ever more than a few globally pinned threads ever anyway.
Meanwhile, I changed my preferencea to STOP auto unpinning and it’s still doing it! It’s driving me a little crazy. Any help?
Stupid question, you are clicking ‘save changes’ after you’ve unchecked the option aren’t you?
I am. I even went back and double checked my settings and it’s still unchecked. Not sure what’s up, but it’s annoying.
