You read them, so they became unpinned for you.

This disabled auto-unpinning in the future, but it doesn’t re-pin topics. Simply search for the topic and re-pin it for you:

Users have always been able to un-pin a topic for themselves. This now happens automatically when they finish reading the topic. Any user can disable this in his settings, and you can default-disable this setting for new users in site settings. You can also permanently disable this feature in site settings, as explained here:

Close it is in:pinned and in:unpinned
