I just added 2 site settings to control the excerpt behavior for pins.
show excerpt on pinned topics in mobile view
show excerpt on pinned topics in desktop view
I noticed (and many others have mentioned) that as anon the front page on mobile in many of our sites only has room for a very small amount of topics.
My change did not touch defaults. However I feel that on mobile we should default to suppressing excerpts on pins:
- The misalignment due to suppressed avatar makes stuff play tricks with my OCD.
- If you have 3 pinned topics all you see on front page is 3 pinned topics
- Anon (which is the lions share of traffic) can not unpin
- Some sites don’t even desire the auto unpin function
