    Would you rather have the sport/league discussion threads be pinned, or have something in the sidebar, below the prefixes that would point to the threads?

    considerations:
    1.) we have 8 pinned threads right now, which is excessive and overwhelming when jumping into the Sports sxn and having to scroll way down to see any new threads
    2.) sidebar is only accessible on desktop, meaning that if on mobile, you will still see the league threads, but they would be sorted like every other thread, based on latest reply (i.e., just wouldn't be pinned)

    option #1 -- pinned (what's in place today):

    option #2 -- sidebar & not pinned:

    if there's enough buy-in, i'll likely go with option 2. won't necessarily be a majority vote decision, since #2 is way cleaner and less obtrusive, but gauging if there'd be large pushback or not (in which case it'll stay as-is)

    @Slyk I browse s80 on mobile for 99% of the time, so option 2 won't work for me or?

    Would definitely go for 2 looking at it objectively though

    Option 2 looks like 31st Century s--- so that would be amazing!

    But...
    I literally can't remember when I accessed any website on desktop, let alone Studio Leaks. So I can't possibly vote for something that i know is going to make my experience worse.

    When desktop and mobile development are alligned then I'll be all for something is sleek as that.

    I might be in the minority but I usually just ignore pinned threads anyway and scroll down past them unless I’m looking for a thread specifically.

    I use mobile almost always so Option 2 would at least allow me to look at what threads are popular with latest replies, etc. and wouldn’t automatically decide to overlook any threads just because they are pinned.

    Guess i'm the only option 1 peep here, I just prefer what's easier posting wise over what looks better, but oh well. I'm fine either way. Didn't even vote anyways lol.

    Option 2 is beautiful, but I also got concerns on if it will work on mobile.
