    Health [a common Forum Type].

    I haven't liked many forums lately (except xenforo.com itself).
    I feel that forums are too lacking in content these days.
    The back and forth chit chat is fun, but only for a while.

    I think I would like forums more .... if I felt that either the fruits of the discussion would yield some content.
    Or possibly if the discussion was more structured and goal oriented.

    I myself think forums need to battle Social Networking by ... having more social features and more structured content.

    but Forums are still more "structured" than e.g. Facebook, don't they?

    Yea. a little bit.

    Wait. Maybe not.
    Discussion often can be based around commenting on pictures and commenting on status updates.
    As well, it can be highly structured around Friends / Not Friends. I also think there are Facebook groups sort of.
    Maybe even pages.
    Certain types of discussions are "Wall based".

    So, Facebook might have more structures than Forums.

    Sorry for being a bit vague. I'm not a Facebooker.

    Forums ... probably have less content structures than Facebook.

    my favourite types of forums are those that allow me to share a dissenting opinion and will not subject me to sanctions for mere disagreement with the boards popular opinion.
    they are pretty rare.

    You should have started a poll.

    I'd add to your list cooking and construction.

    These days my favorite forum type is the one with a Delete button in the post's options and the one that does NOT have this in its Terms and Rules:

    Not really, I like to learn as much as I can so I don't nail myself down to any specific types forums in that niche.
