    What?

    You just made a thread, otherwise known as a topic, and right now I'm making a post. It's not too difficult, is this your first forum?

    to expand on that a bit...

    a 'thread' is a string of posts, started by the original poster's first post, such as the one you just put up... it consists of the original plus all replies/responses...

    each entry/reply in a thread is a 'post'... such as this one and the two above it...

    welcome to the world of online forums/boards!...

    love and hugs, maia
