I see there is a new announcement (4/1) with 60 views. Problem is, there is noting to click on.

If you click very carefully on the period, you'll get there. What you see may shock you!

Recent "Special Announcement"?

I don't remember exactly when it started, but yesterday or today, there was a banner announcement, on BF, from Ibobi, obviously an administrator. But there was no announcement, only a film link, that looked like an ad, so I refrained from clicking on it.
Then today, they downloaded iOS 12.2, and that banner went away. Anyone know what that was all about?
I almost didn't let them update my OS, this being April first & all, but it was already downloaded, so would have updated itself anyways, wether I wanted it or not.
Maybe this is normal, for Apple? Please educate a dummy. 🤔🙂

Make the OP a junior moderator, he seems bursting with potential.

It was strange. Thanks for confirming, that at least I wasn't just "seeing things". 😲😁

There is another one with two periods. Add a period and you've got hockey!

Not seeing things, it happens now and then and it wasn't just from iBobi, I suspect IB folks are testing or more likely it was April First folks....
