What's the difference between a User Forum and a Message Forum. I see both the terms used.

Message Forums are the original class forums that have one continual, never-ending discussion. They typically work better for small classes, classes without much forum activately, and sometimes older classes. User Forums are threaded message forums that tend to work better for larger classes, classes that heavily use the forums, and often younger classes where users are more likely to have more comprehensive computer skills. For these reasons some classes choose the original forums, some choose the threaded forums, and some are even using both for various purposes.

I only see the User Forum link and I think the Message Forum would fit my class best. Where do I find the Message Forum link?

1) Click Edit Site Pages
2) Place a checkmark in the Active column next to Message Forums

Thank you. That was easy. I don't know why I did not notice that.
