Navigating the Forum

Some Forums have more than one category. In the display below, the Forum Accessibility Discussion has 3 categories showing.
Each forum has a moderator. A moderator simply keeps an eye on the topic to make sure items posted there are on topic. The moderator is usually someone with interest in the topic and they often post items to that particular forum.
