Would be useful for announcements or other important notices that administrators want to inform to the users. Say a change in the moderation system or something that everyone should be aware of.

This is asking for using some other django app, I guess. Would be great if anyone could suggest something.

I think instead of a sidebar, we could reuse the way tooltip shows up when you haven't signed it yet and use the same technique for system wide announcements by moderators or admins. thoughts?

Just to clarify - tooltips - a box that opens when you hover your mouse over something? Then announcement system of some sort would be useful of course, we should try to reuse some ready django component for that.

well not the tool tip really. the top yellow bar that shows up when you have not signed in or when you have received a badge and so on. That same top bar can be reused for announcements?

just wanted to be clear :), yes I understand that you mean - the notification system. Actually it should be working, don't you get "you received a badge" messages?

I do but my request was that if I want to send a custom message to all users, I would like the method to be the same
