What's the difference between announcements and globals?

Announcements show up in the forum you post them in.
Globals show up in every forum and also in the user control panel.

Nothing except that globals are global.. Which means they appear on every forum.

You can make an announcement in a forum and it is unique to that forum - also stays at the top.
A Global Announcement would appear at the top of all fora.

The truth is out there.
Unfortunately they will not let you anywhere near it!

1 that's unique to a forum, isn't that a sticky?

No. Announcements and stickies can be in just one forum.

The difference is that an announcement stays at the top of every page in the forum whereas stickies are only at the top of the first page.
