Just a quick check on forum terminology and practices. Sorry. This one is a little boring.
OK, so if you haven't figured it out yet, here's the structure of your average forum:
You have the forum, in which you will find, boards, topics, and posts.
When you click on HOME, the list you're presented with is a list of BOARDS. They are at the top of the top of the forum hierarchy, and contain everything else, including other boards (which we call sub-boards). Only forum Administrators can create boards and sub-boards.
Then you have the Topics. All topics must be placed within the relevant board(s), and ultimately are the catalyst for, or subject of, all the conversations (post) that occur within. These can be created by registered forum members or administrators, and are the backbone of any successful forum.
Finally, you have posts, which are basically the responses of your fellow members. Posts are a great way of determining the popularity and success of any posted topic.
The reason I'm bringing all this up is that the Sell With Soul forum is destined to grow. The more registered users we have on the forum, the more diverse the subjects discussed will become. So you should know how to go about requesting new boards.
Creating topics in the correct boards and keeping our online community clean is very important to its success, so we don't want you (our members) to start topics in strange places where no one can find them. It's much better if you let us know if you believe there is a need for a new Forum Board. Now this doesn't mean we're going to create it, it just lets us know what you want, and where our online community is heading.
The best way to request a new Board is to navigate to the General Category/Forum Feature Request, and post a new topic explaining its intended purpose. Now if you'd really like to have fun with this, you can post a poll!
This way other users can let us, and you, know if they agree. How cool is that?
Again, and this is important, you may not get what you're looking for, so don't get mad if we can't or won't make a change you request, but hey... At least you can say you tried, we can say we care, and everyone can see that this is the happies little Real Estate Forum on the net.
Thanx for listening. Happy forumating to you all.
