I run a discourse forum for my cycling team. And I find that pinned topics don’t really stand out much. I naturally find myself looking for some seperation or divider, bold titles on the threads, highlighting… something.
Currently aside from the little pin icon, they look exactly like standard topics which I find a little lack-luster.
Note the top two topics are pinned, but they’re listed just like everything else. I’d love to see simply a good, heavy divider between pinned topics and everything else but I’m open to other ideas. I just feel like right now they blend in to the mix and don’t call attention to themselves at all once they’re “read”.
