Is it possible to "pin" a card to the top of a list?

Title says it all. There are a few lists we have where (for different reasons in each case) we would like to have a particular card always stay at the top of the list. Is this possible?

@Iain Dooley's comment gave me the idea for the following work around, using a rule. It would require one rule per list that has a pinned card:

To pin a card with link <target card link> to the top of the list <Important List>, one could use the following Butler rule:

when a card is added to list "<Important List>", find a card with link "<important card link>", and move the card to the top of list "<Important List>"

I only did a quick test, but it seems to work well. Hope it might be helpful to others!

@rax adaam nope but this Trellinator function will move any card with the label "Pinned" to the top of any list whenever a card is added to or moved in/out of any list on the board:

@Iain Dooley Thanks again -- looking forward to exploring this resource. Is this something that would constitute a power-up? I haven't explored those at all, yet. 

Also curious to know what your title  of "community leader" means? You appear to be so active on this board (& helpful), I assumed you were paid by Trello. Is that just a badge that testifies to your helpfulness? What motivates you (if you don't mind sharing)? Regardless, I really appreciate all the help!

Trellinator is an open source automation framework I created to replace Butler Bot when it became a power up (before being acquired by Trello). I was consulting to clients using Butler Bot but needed something more powerful than the powerup version of Butler so created Trellinator and ported all of my clients' Butler code over to it.

As such the syntax and scope are very "butler like". You can run it on Google Apps Script, but I've also got a hosted version called BenkoBot, currently you can only execute "one off" commands via BenkoBot but notification handling and scheduled commands are on the way (already running in closed beta for some of my clients):

https://app.benkobot.com/

So Trellinator isn't a power up, it runs as a Trello user using the API. Typically that means it runs as a dedicated "bot user" in much the same way as Butler Bot used to, but instead of having a single butlerbot user that everyone invites to their boards, you would create one or more "bot users" of your own and then run code as those bots (sort of like when you create slack bots or whatever). Depending on your configuration you might then pay to have that bot as a member of a team, as a member of more than one board and so on, but it doesn't constitute a power up. You could run automations under your own account in the same way that the Butler power up does but I find that less useful than having a separate bot user.

Also curious to know what your title  of "community leader" means? You appear to be so active on this board (& helpful), I assumed you were paid by Trello.

I run a Trello consulting company and have several Trello products:

My primary motivation for contributing to the community is obviously commercial: I get customers and clients from it.

However I also do it to keep tabs on trends in Trello, new features and experiments being run out in the wild and to be more connected and involved with Atlassian as a company (there's no partner program for Trello specialists yet).

@rax adaam - if you're interested in being an Atlassian Community Leader, there's an upcoming webinar on it. (Early October, but still "upcoming"...)
