Does it pin or unpin based on the number of votes?  From the images it looks like it does.

You set the setting to a value. One for Pinning. One for unpinning. If the setting to pin is 5 it will auto pin upon the 5th vote. same for the unpin.

Installed.

Not sure if this would be difficult, but it would be a great option to be able to see how many votes a topic has.  I just voted to pin a topic, but I have no idea if anyone else has, or how close it is to getting pinned.

Also, what happens if a mod / admin pins something?  Will this override that and unpin it?

I'm working on another plugin right now, but I'll add a counter to show how many votes have been made after the user has "voted".

If a mod or admin pins or unpins it, the stats will still be in the database, would you like those to be cleared?

I guess I'm not sure how I feel about this.  The idea that I installed it implies I want the users to have a say of whether something stays pinned or not.  I think I would want them to be able to unpin something a mod pinned.  I was just curious.

If something is pinned, then it will show the give the user the option to vote to unpin. When a mod/admin marks them as pinned/unpinned the stats don't reset for the pin_requests or unpin_requests.

Example: Users vote 5 times to pin a topic, and the mod pins it himself. Now users vote to have it unpinned, when it gets unpinned the count for the pin_requests is still 5.

Would want those stats reset when a mod/admin pins/unpins the topic?

I got a comment from one user:

"I can't see any way to undo my vote in case I accidentally chose to pin when I really meant to quote."

Would it be hard to let the user remove their vote, kind of like the Like system?

I'll work that into the update as well. ^_^

I actually wondered if the vote button could be made to be better seen. But im not sure if that would work at all. Could it be worked into the like this button?

I can turn it into a button, right now it's just a link.

link/button :D  i was just thinking of ways i could customize it to fit in myself. Thought about a thumb icon next to the multiquote icon or adding it next to the like this button. Just want it to not look out of place ya know?
