I no what u saying but it really does no harm if u only want the announcement then u don't read rest,
That would be fine if we could count on the orginator always starting a new thread whenever there's new information to post rather than just updating a previous thread. But we would have to be sure that the update to the recent roaming heads-up would be a new announcement rather than an update to the existing thread, and the same needs to apply to all announcements.
But currently, existing threads are often updated. From the index we can only see that three new posts have been added. We have no way of knowing whether that's three members all posting something pointless or a staff member posting something important. So in practice we either have to revisit the thread just to verify that the new posts can be ignored, or risk missing something that might have been important.
Either, the announcements should be read-only, or the announcements should allow replies but updates (including corrections) to announcements should start a new thread, so that nobody ever needs to read past the first post.
Many mistakes r made by educators dates, wrong imfomation, we can tag and draw there attention
... but the error in the feedback thread itself proved, the orginator will probably not see the error report and it will still be wrong days or even weeks later. The reason being that the orginator has no way of knowing that buried beneath a hundred pointless posts is an error report.
But if the thread was read-only and contained an error, we would find better ways of reporting errors -- either using the report button or by PM.
It's a forum we should have a rite to respond to OP.
Technically, I'd say that was a "privilege" rather than a right. There's nothing in the Human Rights act that says that every forum on every web site must provide the ability to post comments, whether pointless or otherwise.
The majority of forums work perfectly well without the ability to directly reply to announcements. There is always somewhere better where you can post -- and in our case, it's contribute.
