Gaming Forums, as one might expect, are places to go and talk about games. Members all have similar interests (though perhaps not similar opinions).
This particular forum is a repository for an extensive modification to the EgoSoft X³ game series, including custom models and code. Members and developers can offer each other advice and assistance.
A forum can, of course, be centred around anything — users’ groups can post their experiences with various products; fans can discuss the peccadilloes and endearing traits of the celebrities of their choice; sports enthusiasts can talk up their favourite teams; managers can communicate with their employees no matter what time is is.
