example: if i wanted to find out what the weather was like in a posters area i would start a thread and name it "your areas weather" and in the first post, commonly refered to as "OP", i would put forth the general idea of the thread such as "tell me about your areas current weather".
Threads aren't just created anywhere, they are created in the subforums apropriate for them (Supporting evidence needed). In my example above I would place the thread in the "Earth science" subforum or the "Free thoughts" subforum.
No one actually cares about leopold99's example, or what he would do.
plural (slang): clothes.
