I have looked in the admin settings and my own personal preferences. I can’t find a single setting that references auto-unpinning posts (I would like it to be off by default).
On https://meta.discourse.org/my/preferences/interface there is
Automatically unpin topics when I reach the bottom.
On site settings there are two (somewhat confusing) settings at
The naming is a bit confusing to me. Is this what turns off auto-unpinning a topic when a user reads it?
It is, once the user reads reaches the bottom of the pinned thread it will automatically be unpinned.
The user preference is on by default, yes.
This seems to have done the trick, thank you
