Hi,

Can we have this functionality where we can a pin/unpin a post which we feel useful for that thread ?
Something like WhatsApp/Instagram/Twitter have it now where a certain chat/post/tweet will be the first one to be visible on a profile.

Thanks

Probably the moderator only. The user can ask the moderator and if he thinks it is relevant then he can pin it.

TripAdvisor pins the first post in a thread. You see this first post in the second page of the thread too, etc. We can have a user can pin a webpage but moderators can overrule that and unpin it. The pinned post should have some justification for why it is pinned. For example, if we want to understand the rest of the posts, is the pinned post essential?
