what is the difference between a "question" and a "discussion" in the forum?

"Ask a Question" and "New Discussion" show a form with identical fields. Can someone please explain the difference between a question and a discussion? In what way(s) are they treated differently? In what circumstances should one be chosen over the the other?



yes, I searched for: difference between forum question and discussion +forum +question +discussion +difference +question +discussion

    Discussion doesn't have the option to accept nor reject answers.
    It's meant for more general chats, opinions and such than actually asking for something specific.
    Also for sharing work, tutorials, links, opportunity offerings, announce events & libraries, etc.

  • thank you, sir
