Similar to how the <activity:object-type> blog entry is a specialization of the "article" object type, we may also want to add a "forum-topic" of "forum-post" or "forum-root" object-type to describe articles that are commentable in Forums. 

Brainstorm

A "forum-topic" <activity:object-type> could be a specialization of the "article" object type:

     http://activitystrea.ms/schema/1.0/forum-topic 

Examples

Services that have forums include:

 

Potential mark-up / attributes

<entry>
   ...
   <activity:verb>...post</activity:verb>
   <activity:object>
      <activity:object-type>http://activitystrea.ms/schema/1.0/forum-topic</activity:object-type>
      <id>ID of forum topic</id>
      <title>Title of the forum topic</title>
      <link rel="alternate" type="text/html" href="/URL to forum topic self page" />
      <!--Optional--><summary>Snippet of the forum topic</summary>
      <!--Optional--><content>Full text of the forum topic</content>
      <published>Date / Time the forum topic was posted</published>
   </activity:object>
</entry>

I'm wondering if a forum is just another kind of collection — like a set of photos on Flickr that you can comment on...? We certainly can use the ATOM comment threading extension to cover comments posted to forums — that are in reply to an original "article" or "topic".

A question that I have is how this is different from a blog post?
