Project Description


To create the Multilingual Moderated Forum (world-wide-web discussion board) in two languages: Russian and English (the translation from English to Russian can be performed by Buyer himself).

**Basic Definitions**

The _registered users_ are identified by login and password. All unauthorized users (guests) are considered as default user ‘Guest’. Each user or visitor has a set of _preferences_ specifying the look and feel of the Forum to him/her.

The _message_ is the plain or formatted text with some additional information (such as subject, author name, date/time, etc.). Each message has the _type_ that indicates its _category_, display preferences and purport, e.g. ‘question’, ‘news’, ‘information’, ‘expert judgment’, etc.

The _thread_ is the hierarchical tree-structured set of messages, where the first message is a root (initial) message, and other messages are replies to root or subsequent messages.

The _section_ is a topic-specific set of threads in a certain language mostly. Each user has a _position_ in each section that defines his/her role and level of access.

The _survey_ (pool) is the question with a list of suggested answers at a certain section. User can vote for the particular answer.

The _glossary_ explains the most frequently used terms (words or phrases) and is auto-linked to the text of the message.

The _action_ is any operation that some user can do, e.g. view message, post message of the particular category, initiate a thread, edit own message, delete message of the other user, etc.

The _privilege_ is the right to perform the action at the section.

The _group_ is the set of users. Each user may be a member of any number of the groups. The privileges are granted to the groups and thus applied to all members (users) of the group.

See attached file for details.
