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 or the forum set-up, a posted message might need to be approved by a moderator before it becomes visible.

Forums have a specific set of jargon associated with them; e.g. a single conversation is called a “thread”, or topic.

A discussion forum is hierarchical or tree-like in structure: a forum can contain a number of subforums, each of which may have several topics. Within a forum’s topic, each new discussion started is called a thread, and can be replied to by as many people as so wish.

Definition of "Forum" by Chat GPT: A forum is an online discussion platform where people can exchange ideas, ask questions, and share information. It is a virtual space where users can engage in conversations on a particular topic or subject. Forums can be public or private and are typically moderated to ensure that the discussions remain civil and respectful. Users can create new topics, post comments, and respond to other users' posts, making it a collaborative platform for learning and sharing knowledge.
