Discussion board - not just a fancy name for forum!

This part of the Traditional Painter site as more than a forum now. Blog comments, FAQ, customer support questions AND educational forum chat all appear here now. All topics and articles on the TP site will be inter-linked where appropriate, making it very easy to search from here and and find what you want across the whole site. And vice versa from the website.

From the blog to the forum to a private question, it all happens here. Hence the tag, discussion board.
