Are you stating that the site notice feature doesn't work in 1.3.9 or are
you just saying that you know it does work in 1.4, so I should upgrade?
(Frankly, I'm not going to upgrade until there is a gigantic need, perhaps
1.5 or 1.6. Most of you may have the knowledge and time, but it would be a
major project for me and I have several hundred more pressing things to do.
I'm using a hosted site and there's no telling what will break, what
changes I'd have to beg for, if I change what is working reasonably
well. "ain't broke, ...")
It would be nice to have the site notice feature working, but so far, no
one seems to be willing or able to tell me:
1) is it supposed to work in 1.3.x?
2) if so, is there something besides a simple edit of the contents of the
MediaWiki:SiteNotice article required?
3) if so, what? If not, why would mine not work?

Well, sitenotice works as advertised in mediawiki 1.4,
upgrading to it you get any number of improvements, including security
fixes. It appears that you've only got a small amount of stuff already
in your 1.3.9 installation, so migration should be straightforward.
