    Sticky threads are used to announce something about that perticular forum in question. Announcements are used to announce something about the whole site, hence why they get displayed usually in all forums.

    Stickies can only be in one forum and are permanent (until you manually remove it); announcements can be in several forums at once and can have an expiration date. You may allow users to comment in a sticky (if it isn't closed); users may not comment on annoucnements.

    If you have info about what can or cannot be posted in a specific forum, I'd make that a sticky.
