    Why do most admins seperate announcements and discussions?

    Isn't it strange having 2 threads? 1 with the announcement and a second with "discuss foobar announcement"

    I like the separation.

    I think keeping announcements by themselves keep things much more professional, rather than having outsiders seeing post like: "first", "this update sucks" ect ect.

    But if the discussion forum is visible for guests, they can see it

    Couldn't agree with you more. I always felt announcements should be posted for announcements and the associated topic to discuss that announcement in forum X.

    I prefer the separation.

    It keeps the announcement threads clean, tidy and professional.

    I think Annoucements should be in a more formal location such as a Developer's Blog (comments could be enabled or disabled). I also think that new Blog entries should show up in "What's New" searches. I also think people should be able to Subscribe to the Developer's Blog and receive an Alert when new entries occur.

    Never thought to ever separate things but I'm just a lazy admin.

    I had an add-on where it would create a discussion thread whenever a new announcement was made.

    There you go. That's a really good response.
