Differences between forums and subforums



  • Hi,

    I read that dinosaur breeder can became moderator of a sub-forum. What is exactly a sub-forum? I have always seen and used posts in the forum section...

    Thanks.



  • To my understanding, a subforum is a specific channel like this "Beta Testing" or the "General and Desktop". The forum is the whole of all channels.



  • Thank you Andre, it was not obvious. I have always considered the subforums like forums ...

    Cheers.

    We usually use the term "Forum" to point to specific subforum when we're in a forum thread. "The forums" and "subforums" make more sense in the context of the whole DevNet website. Confusing, no? :-)



  • Thank you Volker, now it's all clear :)

    ... I am dinosaur breeder by few days so I have not yet understand perfectly how to help this great beasts :D

    But is something that I should eventually ask or I will be "recruited" to moderate some subforum when needed ?



  • If you feel the need to help moderate a forum, then you should contact Alexandra.



  • Ok, thank you for the info. I am disposable, so I write her if it is needed.

    :) Have a nice day
