Forums are threaded discussions (topics sorted by discussion names and displayed in a reverse chronological order).  Members can discuss issues that they feel are important in areas set aside based on categories and topics.  They can be private (associated with a given user), group (attached to a group), or public (visible to all). Guidelines are presented here covering how to use forums, which type to use for a particular purpose, and how to keep discussions focused on the individual topic (and reasons for doing this).
