 > Well i've just checked in 1.6.4, and i don't think not sending emails is
 a bug

 Thanks for looking. It sounds like the bug is, indeed, that we're showing
 a settings option for an action doesn't exist. So the question remains:
 should we fix this by removing the unused setting option, or by instating
 the new feature of emailing these notices out? The whole idea behind
 sitewide notices seems to be that the messages are *important*, so email
 seems like a pretty natural thing to do. But, as you note, it might be
 problematic to send out so many emails at once.

 In either case, I think the bug has been in place long enough that it's
 not urgent to fix it for 1.7, especially if we're going to start adding
 new functionality.

 > it's then necessary to check if this widget is activated before
 displaying the checkbox to the admin in the compose screen of the bp
 message component.

 Yeah, that's an interesting idea. Alternatively, on the compose screen, we
 could check to see whether there's an active Sitewide Notices widget, and
 if not, we show a notice: "Site Admin: Enable a Sitewide Notices widget to
 display your message to all users" - and then we would disable the
 checkbox. Of course, this would only apply to theme-compat.

 is this a crazy idea? Also, is it feasible for 1.7? It seems like we
 should do *something*, as the Notices feature is currently pretty much
 broken for theme compat.
