Key Points from the Discussion Forum Video


Discussion forums are used to have conversations.
There are methods of having effective conversations on discussion forums. Some of the basic netiquette examples include:
  • The thread or subject is the main topic of a discussion forum.
  • The page or subreddit topic is a larger topic that you need to relate to unless you want to be deleted off topic.
  • Respond to people by name to prevent confusion.
