Comment (by r-a-y):

 > If this ticket is about notices not appearing in theme compat., that's
 what we need to fix. The other good enhancements can come in a later

 If that is the case, then we need to hardcode the notices somewhere.  The
 most logical place to put this is in the footer.  But if we decide to do
 this, it should be in theme compat only.


 However, what Boone and imath state about a widget and
 [https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/4802#comment:6 using a
 checkbox on the "Notices" screen] is an interesting idea.

 The problems with the widget option are:

 * [https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/4802#comment:1 As Boone
 states above], a site admin would have to manually add this sitewide
 notice widget before it is shown. (Related: #1474)  This can be looked at
 as both a pro and a con.

 * [https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/4802#comment:2 As imath
 states above], this option wouldn't work if a theme does not have any
 registered widget areas.

 * A widget would be redundant in bp-default since bp-default hardcodes the
 notices in the sidebar template.
