The "post" is usually the first piece of writing that starts off a "New topic". Others may reply with "comments" and so forth, creating a topic "thread".

The topic is the subject of a new post. Any subsequent comments by others will usually be relevant to the topic.

A forum moderator may be assigned by a site administrator in order to monitor and ensure the terms and conditions of the website forum are maintained by all users who participate. The moderator is able to control some specific forum functions; for example, they can delete posts, create sticky posts and lock topics. They may also be offer comments on forum issues to do with conduct and protocols.

A topic that has been locked is identified by this image:Click to see original Image in a new window

The topic can still be read but no more replies are accepted. Why should this be required?

1. Some topics can extend for several pages and become too large to follow easily.
2. The point of the topic has been reached and resolved and further discussion becomes irrelevant or confusing.
3. The moderator decides to close the topic due to poor conduct or sensitive disclosures.

Sticky topics are identified by the following image:Click to see original Image in a new window

Those topics are always displayed at the top of the topic list. Usually, a sticky topic is a topic that will interest a lot of users, so it is displayed first.
