I'm pleased to announce that I've made a few changes to the way the forums are displayed. Before, as you browse the forums, you would notice there were announcements they didn't seem to belong in that particular category. Those are called "Global Announcements" which appeared in EVERY category. Also it was slightly difficult to differentiate between a Sticky and a Normal Topic.
This has been clarified by separating each type of topic into it's own container.
Here is the different types of topics taken from the FAQ page.
What are Global announcements?
Global announcements contain important information and you should read them whenever possible. They will appear at the top of every forum and within your User Control Panel. Global announcement permissions are granted by the board administrator.
What are Announcements?
Announcements often contain important information for the forum you are currently reading and you should read them whenever possible. Announcements appear at the top of every page in the forum to which they are posted. As with global announcements, announcement permissions are granted by the board administrator.
What are Sticky topics?
Sticky topics within the forum appear below announcements and only on the first page. They are often quite important so you should read them whenever possible. As with announcements and global announcements, sticky topic permissions are granted by the board administrator.
What are Normal topics?
Normal topics are the most common regular topic type. Registered users have permission to post this type. This probably doesn't need much explanation.
If anyone has any questions or feedback please reply to this post. Enjoy!
