I have opened an online forum.
But do not know a couple things about the word forum.

Which one is correct in or on?
write in our forum / write on our forum

Do I need an article "the"?
write in/on the forum / write in/on forum

    I've seen fluent writers use both "in the forum" and "on the forum", englishking. If you think of the forum as something like an electronic bulletin board, then "on" makes sense. If you think, as I do, of the forum as an imaginary space where people gather for discussions, then "in" makes sense.

    If you say use our forum you miss all the problem with the preposition and this also allows for the fact that some people read a lot more than they write in forums.
