my forum uses /categories as the index with 3 featured/latest topics displayed per category, and it’s a little annoying that pinned topics stick to the top of the featured list. some categories do have more than 3 pinned topics, meaning that new posts in those categories can never appear in the featured list unless they’re in one of those topics.
pinning is useful when viewing the category itself but on the /categories page is there a setting to prevent pins from always being at the top? i just want the 3 most recently posted/posted-in topics to appear, pinned or no. I’m not sure why pinning affects the ordering there, kind of kneecaps the point of the feature imo.
