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: In the context of computing, a "thread" refers to the smallest unit of execution within a process. Threads share the same memory space and resources of a process, allowing them to run concurrently and perform multiple tasks simultaneously. Multiple threads can exist within a single process, each executing different parts of the program's code. Threads are commonly used to improve performance by taking advantage of multi-core processors and enabling multitasking within an application.
