Forum Commenting Guidelines:

What is forum: An Internet forum, or message board, is an online discussion site where people can hold conversations in the form of posted messages. They differ from chat rooms in that messages are at least temporarily archived. Also, depending on the access level of a user or the forum set-up, a posted message might need to be approved by a moderator before it becomes visible.
Forums have a specific set of jargon associated with them; e.g. a single conversation is called a "thread".
A discussion forum is hierarchical or tree-like in structure: a forum can contain a number of sub-forums, each of which may have several topics. Within a forum's topic, each new discussion started is called a thread, and can be replied to by as many people as so wish. [from Wikipedia]

Purpose of a discussion Forum:
Information sharing
Assisting the community with related supports
To work towards a specific goal
To clarify understanding
To learn from each other
Making lives easy
Why forum participation is important in Digital Marketing: Almost all the webmaster are interested to participate in related forums to
Generate targeted traffic
Receive mentions and links (if possible)
Be a Authority and influencer in the community
Things to check when you are joining a forum:
Check the forum members statistics. Should go for a forum which is really active. Nobody likes inactive forums as answers got delayed.
Check whether the forum is regularly updated.
Choose a forum related to the business and the targeted region.
Best Practices of Forum commenting:
Read the forum guidelines first
Do not ever try to spam the forum at the first instance to get links and traffic – this doesn’t happen. People hate spammers.
Most of the forums do not allow the signature link at first. They require a basic level of participation. Do that first.
Participate and try to help people as much as possible with quality information and with your knowledge (this is applicable for most of the social media channels as well)
Even if you have a chance to spread the project link, try to avoid spreading naked links. Instead just mention the name as a service provider along with some other good references (gov sites, edu sites, and other authority sites)
Avoid engaging in debates. Place your thoughts tactfully and not by hurting others. This will increase your popularity and thus reputation.
Try to assist the fellow members with large piece of content if possible with relevant data and information.
Remember one person cannot be an expert in all possible fields. So groom yourself accordingly.
