We can create discussion forums on any topic we want.
Discussions can be group-specific or of general interest. Some discussions are marked as 'private' and appear only to members that have logged in.
In any case, you can participate in a discussion only if you log in to the members' area.
Any one can, however, monitor discussions available to the public by clicking the 'Forums' entry in the menu bar. Each discussion has its own forum. Under each forum, members can create topics. Members can add postings under a topic, reply to a posting, reply to a reply and so on.
