    Does the PIN feature not show the actual message? I mean if I want to pin something, I want it to be visible if it's an important message or so. How do the players get notified there's a pinned message?

    It would be more awesome if it was pinned open at the top of the default channel, like a MOTD.

    How does my channel see the 'pinned' message. Just like Warmaster, I want to make sure my players are notified for immediate events when they first log back into Discord.

    It would be much better if the pinned message remained at the top of the channel log

    @Warmastercain55 We have a pinned message highlight / notification coming very soon.

    @White_Ink Users can see the pinned message by pressing the pin icon at the top.

    Great feature.
    Please indicate that there are pinned messages. E.g. by a count badge over the pin icon. Also showing that there are new pinned messages (maybe with the badge 'new') would be also great!
    Thanks.

    I'd also like to see pinned messages remain at the top of a channel. That or make a different type of pin message for this... may call it an about message. This would allow you describe your channel to new comers.

    Is there any way to see pinned messages from the phone-based app?

    @montereypoet Not yet, but it's coming!

    My server prefers the old style of pins without notifications, stealth pins if you will. Can the notification option be disabled? I don't see anything that does it in the settings. If not, will that be added?

    @Gevurztraminer We'll be adding a disable message option in the future, but you can always make an announcements channel for something similar as well.

    Please please please remove the 50 pins per channel limit, or at the very least increase the limit. The pins are great and let our Discord server archive important and hilarious memories but 50 just isn't enough :(

    The pins are important in preserving the history of our server's unique cultural heritage, so pleeeeez increase the limit. Thanks :)

    I know this is a late message in this thread, but is there a way to delete ALL pins in a chat channel at once? We reached the limit of 50 pins (which I believe should be much higher) and want to just clear the pins. Also, is there an option to delete pins that are older than a certain date? If there isn't, I think that would be awesome. Thanks!

    I was wondering if there was a way to create a manual pin, in such that you don't actually create a pinned message, but you have a url link to click on that scrolls to that certain message in the chat.

    @iamahappymikael nothing like that at the moment, but you can use shift+click to quick delete all the pins in the menu. Try that!

    @Drflash55 Nothing like that at the moment, but it'd be a good thing to upvote over at feedback.discordapp.com!

    I'm afraid the directions to "unpin" don't work as there is no "X" to click on.

    Nor does the shift technique work.

    Any chance the help files might actually be, helpful???
