Perhaps I don't understand the purpose of the announcements section. Each time I have posted announcements they have been removed.
I don't have the exact text of what I posted (and it's frustrating that there is no notification when an announcement is removed), but it was something like this.
"Thanks for supporting the project during our definition phase. Even if you followed the proposal during stage 1, please now use the "Commit" button on the left.
This is because I don't think it was obvious enough, especially to our users who aren't as familiar with Stack Exchange. Anyway, it is certainly not a comment or discussion, it is an announcement. When I protested, my announcement was removed again, with no explanation.
Now I want to post another announcement, probably:
Thanks for supporting the proposal so far. If you want to help us reach our goal faster, please head on over to Stack Overflow and ask/answer a few questions using the ExpressionEngine tag, to gain at least 200 reputation. This will help move us to the next stage.
However, I feel that will just get removed without comment as well. Any suggestions as to how to phrase this announcement so it doesn't get removed?
