I'm not incredibly sure how to explain this, but it's a fairly simple concept and I've seen it on some of the forum hosts before I made the change to Forumotion.

Essentially, it's just an optional timer that will automatically switch Announcements, Global Announcements, and Stickies either down one slot (Global -> Announcement; Announcement -> Sticky; Sticky -> Normal) or all the way down to normal topics after the given time (in days).

The parameters are just like the "Run poll for [_] days." where you can either specify a time for it to shut itself off after, or you can leave it blank and leave it there forever.
Whereas, in this case, it would degrade it one slot or just take it straight down to a normal topic after the given days, or if no time is given, it will stay as it is until manually changed.

I might also add that this is on a per-topic basis, set up similarly to the way you make a poll. (Radio button to determine whether it degrades 1 level every X days, or just drops to normal after X days and a box to enter the amount of days you want.)


This would be incredibly helpful for those of us with a rather large or complex forum who like to keep the new news separated from the old news or who would only like to keep something stickied/pinned/announced for so many days and are often too busy to remember to take it down.

I don't see why you would want to go from announcement to sticky...

But I guess you could use g. announcement to announcement and sticky to normal...I'm neutral...need more convincing.

If you changed the names of the announcements, it could go from Global Announcement to Announcement to Old News or Old Announcement.

Yes, as Emma said, you could make a system of it by changing the names, or you could just bypass that and select the option to just set it as a normal topic after X days instead of down-grading it one slot.
