This needs examples of what threading looks like and a better plain English definition.

I originally edited the topic thread page, but have now moved my edits here, as they are a more general discussion of threading.

The first paragraph is a poor definition, in my opinion, since it does not concentrate specifically on what differentiates threaded discussion from other forms of discussion on the net.James Harvey 11:06, 19 January 2007 (UTC)


I added a photo, but phpBB is a poor example of threading. Anyone have a better one? ffm 22:39, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Should get a shot of KAWF. It's a very good example of threading.Big-Pat Talk 07:51, 17 March 2009 (UTC)


Is this article about usenet threads (tree), or all threads - forum threads (phpbb, linear) too? (talk) 03:48, 14 November 2009 (UTC)

The lede (first paragraph) says all threads, e.g., for online discussions. That may be overly broad. Tedickey (talk) 14:20, 14 November 2009 (UTC)

phpBB discussion example is weak.[edit]

show something with fully threading, a reply with a quote is ridiculous. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:06, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
