Difference Between our Blog and our Forum

Rate this Entry
This site features both a Blog and a Discussion Forum. Some users have been confused about the purpose and nature of each entity. On this site, at least, this is how we use the two.



BLOG: we use this as a stream of thought. It is date-based, so you always see the newest items first. Users may submit comments on blog items, but beyong this there is no "threading" of comments. Users can not start their own topics, only comment on existing posts.



FORUM: this is a categorized discussion of various topics. The discussion is "threaded" in that you can reply to any original topic or to specific responses to any topic (reply to a reply). You can also start your own topics under any catagory.



BOTH: the Blog and the Forum each keep their content "forever." However, with the Blog it can be somewhat harder to find older content. With the Forum, the old content is always there, attached to the original topic.
