Announcments and Stikies

Post by Star Weaver » Thu Apr 05, 2012 7:09 pm

Hi! I'm finding it hard to tell the difference between global announcments and announcments that are apparently tied to the forum you are looking at. Unless there's some other way to distinguish them visually, I'd suggest using global announcments only and making forums specific ones into stickies. It would certainly help me realize both when new globals are posted and when new stuff is in the forum I'm looking at's ones.

Also, I think the current MOTM post should be in the global announcments.

Global Announcements are just like announcements except visible globally, the other option is we don't use Announcements except globally. I can look into a mod and see what can be done, however I bet Wolfy will have it handled before I can check.

Hm, yeah, I'd just use announcments for globals and stickies for forum-specific stuff in that case.

Forgot to reply to this forever :D

Well, maybe people didn't understand, read this, or were hoping the silcence means things are ok, but I *STILL* have *LARGE* problems figuring out which announcements are global vs local. And because of this just spent ten minutes looking for the the MOTM banners gallery despite knowing (almost) where it was.

Though that's ALSO related to the fact that posts like that show that they're from two years ago due to the way they're updated, or something.
