What is a Forum?

A forum is a public meeting place where members are free to discuss a variety of topics.

When you first enter the CatholicMatch discussion forums, you will find a listing of topics ranging from catechetics to prayer requests to sports. Inside each of these topics are a number of sub-topics, referred to as threads that relate to the main topic. For example, in the Sports topic, members may be discussing the outcome of a recent ball game, while another thread in the Member Meet-Ups topic may be discussing an upcoming member gathering.

A full description of each subject can be found by selecting the header of the forum rooms.

How can I begin a new forum thread?

To begin a new thread or discussion topic in the forums, first choose the topic of your thread from the topic listing. If you are unsure of the appropriate location, a description of the topic can be found by selecting the topic and reviewing the information included in the header. Saint Peter's Square can be used to post about any topic that does not fit in other areas.

  • Once in the appropriate topic area, select New Topic.
  • Enter a subject name that briefly describes the content you'd like to post
  • Enter your content into the main textbox.
  • Select Submit Post

Once you have posted a topic, it cannot be removed unless it is found to be in violation of the Forum Rules. Please be sure not to post anything that you may later regret.

Can I edit or remove a post after it has been submitted?

Once you have submitted your forum post, it cannot be altered or removed unless it contains information that conflicts with the forum rules. We recommend using the Preview Post option before submitting to ensure that your post appears as intended and that you reread your entire post to ensure that you may not later regret the information shared.
