Why do posts unpin? Can I turn it off?

I’ve had the Inform 7 Documentation wiki post open for several weeks as I’m working on a large scale I7 project.

It’s a great resource, and I only found it because it was pinned at the top of the #authoring:inform-7 topic. Unfortunately, now that I’ve left it open, it seems to randomly unpin itself and I have to keep re-pinning it… is there a way to make sure that this post stays pinned for me?


If you click on the pin icon so it points down: image

The post should stay pinned for you.

I’ve done that a few times now, and it seems to work for a time before unpinning itself again… Any reason why that would be the case?

That’s a Discourse setting, which you can disable in the “Interface” section under your user preferences by unchecking “Automatically unpin topics when I reach the bottom.”


You can also bookmark a topic or individual post. Hit the bookmark icon that appears from the ellipsis on the message.

This is the second time this week someone has mentioned losing track of that post, so I just added How Not to Lose This Post.
