Part of my paid-for offering involves the buyer’s topic being pinned for a few days.
One or two of those buyers have asked why their topic isn’t showing as pinned. This is because of Discourse’s auto-unpin feature, which un-pins a topic when a member has read it (only for that member). Auto-unpin happens immediately for topic authors, so they never see their topic pinned.
So, I explain how the system works, every time.
It would be handy if the auto-unpin didn’t happen for the author specifically on topics they have authored.
If auto-unpin didn’t happen for topics the member is watching, this would neatly solve the issue.
I’d like to keep auto-unpin enabled for all other cases as it’s a good feature.
