Additional Information about Forums
Forums are a facility on the World Wide Web for holding discussions and posting user generated content and data from around 1995. They address a similar requirement/function as the dial-up bulletin boards and Internet newsgroups, such as the SAS-L list. As recognized by the members of the SAS-L list, forums foster a sense of virtual community. For sasCommunity.org visitors who are not familiar with forums, theon Wikipedia provides a good overview.
Typically Forums are specific to certain general areas or class of topics. Any user can read and respond to a posting in any topic. Likewise, any user can create a new topic (sometimes called a thread in Internet newsgroups).
