Discord Pinned Messages Limit

Discord has set a limitation where you can only pin 50 messages in the pin box, so in case if you need to pin new messages you will have to delete the old one.

Many people think of this as a drawback and want to remove this limitation, but I totally agree with this drawback.

Pinned message options are to pin only important messages which we can reuse in the future, if there is no limitation we will keep pinning the messages and even we won’t remember what all messages we pinned.         

Please let me know in the comment box, do you agree with this limitation or you want this to be revoked.
