Just curious... why are Threads & Posts called Discussions & Messages on the main index page under each forum and also the forum statistics (sidebar) while everywhere else such as the sub-nav bar they are referred to as Threads & Posts? Shouldn't they all be called Threads & Posts?
By the way, I clicked the "Post New Thread" button to create this Discussion. ;-)
I think it's the story of XenForo's think different campaign.
But someday 'thread' may replace with 'topic'
I'm kidding but I can't understand British Software why used the thread term. The fact thread is an American English but Topic is an United Kingdom English. This may not true but thread or topic, there is no difference for me.
