As you have likely noticed, it is no longer possible to highlight discussion threads in the normal manner.
As such, we are forced to try to use what we have available instead, which is a single list of the most important recent threads, highlighted via the announcements feature.
The newest such discussions, that are genuinely important and need widespread community attention, should be posted in replies below by administrators and discussion moderators who open and then close the thread to do so.
It is not allowed to post in this thread for any other purpose.
Take note that all of our staff members and regular users need to subscribe to this thread, by clicking the "Follow" button in the upper right corner of this post, so they get informed about new important discussions that need their attention.
