How do announcements appear?

Are there any "announcement" threads anywhere?

I haven't seen one and I'd be interested to see how they look and fit in with the forums (and sub-forums).

You know, if you made an announcement a few days ago stating that announcements were not implemented yet, then there would not have been a need for this thread. :confused:
I'm not sure what you're referring to/implying...

I *really* like how a box pops up when avatars are clicked. That would be an awesome way to certain announcements.

I was actually assuming that he meant it was asked a couple days ago without a response.
Nah, I wouldn't do that. I would just reply to it to bring it back to the top to get your attention, :)

CBI is a Canadian, as soon as he reads my post, I bet he falls over laughing, :p

On topic for a change. Maybe alerts could be used to implement announcements instead of slapping a permanent element on all pages.

Well, what would happen when you "read" the alert? It would fall in the alerts list only to be buried and forgotten about. You could make it so it could never be read, but as an end-user I would be quite annoyed by a perpetual alert that won't go away and the little alert tag always showing with a '1'.
