Pinned posts are useful for more than just announcements - they also make it easier to establish the norms of a community, by demonstrating what a "good" post looks like.
By popular demand, Community Moderators and Owners will now be able to highlight a post in their Community by pinning it to the top. The “Pin post” option can be found on any post in your Community. The post will then be marked as “Pinned by moderator”, and Community members will see the post at the top of their Community stream until a Moderator unpins it. This feature is rolling out gradually over the course of the day.
Been using it - it's super entertaining (and cathartic) being able to share and read without a pesky identity!
