My concern is just that having a bunch of pinned threads diminishes the effectiveness of pinning; if you are new to a forum and there’s ten threads pinned, many people will internalize that pins are to be ignored. Also, while I don’t mind this thread, my policy has long been that redundant threads aren’t a big deal, especially the longer this forum gets in the tooth.
Perhaps we could have a category for such . . . meta threads, organizational threads? Someone help me come up with a good name for that.
