An internet forum, or message board, is an online discussion site where people can hold conversations in the form of posted messages. They differ from chat rooms in that messages are at least temporarily archived. Also, depending on the access level of a user of the forum set-up, a posted message might need to be approved by a moderator before it becomes visible.
A discussion forum can contain a number of subforums, each of which may have several topics. Within a topic, each new discussion started is called a thread, and can be replied to by as many people as so wish.
Depending on the forum's settings, users can be anonymous or have to register with the forum and then subsequently log in in order to post messages. Users do not have to log in to read existing messages.
