A thread (sometimes called a topic) is a collection of posts, usually displayed from oldest to latest, although this is typically configurable: Options for newest to oldest and for a threaded view (a tree-like view applying logical reply structure before chronological order) can be available. A thread is defined by a title, an additional description that may summarize the intended discussion, and an opening or original post (common abbreviation OP, which can also mean original poster), which opens whatever dialogue or makes whatever announcement the poster wished. A thread can contain any number of posts, including multiple posts from the same members, even if they are one after the other.

Definition of "Thread" by Chat GPT: A thread is a unit of execution in a program. It is a lightweight process that enables a program to perform multiple tasks simultaneously. Threads share the same memory space, allowing them to communicate and share data with each other. They can be created and managed by the operating system or the programming language itself. Threads are commonly used in multi-threaded applications, where tasks can be divided into smaller units of work that can be executed concurrently, leading to improved performance and responsiveness.
