Announcements contain important information on a category or a forum. To make sure that they are read, they appear in the highest priority position in a forum (before the thread list). In a category, they appear in a separate window.
Usually, administrators and moderators have the relevant permission to create announcements, and forum users do not. However, it is possible to give individual forum users special permissions.
