Glossary:

- Avatar: Personal image that appears under or above the username in posts. The avatar is chosen by the user and it usually reflects a personal feeling or a passion.

- Category: A group of forums (sections). They can not hold topics directly.

- Flood: This term is used when you talk about the action of mass-posting where the only motive for the member is to increase ranking, bring down the site or anything else. They can be very short messages. This damages the reputation of the site on Forumotion, and is therefore prohibited.

- Forums: Latin plural for "Forum".

- Flame: Messages or post containing a direct insult. It harms the forum's atmosphere, because it annoys members, and is therefor not appreciated.

- Forum: Two definitions
1) A site or dynamic website containing written expression of its members. Also called "board", "message board" or "bulletin board"
2) A group of topics (or threads)

- User group: a group of users with special or standard privileges, such as having access to a private section or modding.

- Notification: A topic that has been marked as important and always remains at the top of the forum, even if this topic is old.

- Hidden user: A registered user who has chosen to hide the online status. This can be done by setting "Hide your online status" to YES when editing the member's profile. Administrators and moderators however, are still able to see them.

- Post: Part of written message. It also contains the avatar and informative links on the same member.

- Private Message (PM): As the name says, it is a message you send to a member who is the only one that can read that message.
