Just today, having looked back at the forum section on my website, I noticed how blank and empty it looked without any posts at all. So I have decided to change that, with the first forum post ever on my website ( 🥳 ) and actually choosing an interesting - and widely unknown - topic. This subject is on the word "forum", what does it mean, where does it come from; there are so many unanswered questions. Well now, you can learn them. The word "forum" is a word derived from Latin, that literally means "what is out of doors". It began to be used more commonly around the 18th century, and is still a word that is recognised today. Furthermore, in ancient Rome, there were places called Forums (or Roman Forums) which were basically a rectangular plaza with benches for people, stalls for goods, and statues for decoration. Now you know the real meaning behind the word "Forum", it is really a useful bit of information. Thanks for reading!
