Pinned topics/posts are useful to help new users and we use them in all the categories. Some users end up directly in "unread" or "recent" and it would be helpful if we could pin topics to those as well.
Unwatch in unread section
I don't see this in our theme... :suspect:
@julian its suggestion ^_^''
Whether a topic is watched or not has no influence on whether it appears in
/unread. You'd need to ignore the category to do that
