Forums vs Q&A

I'm trying to get a handle on the difference between Forums and Q&A. Isn't Q&A basically a forum with rating? Is there a difference to their purpose? They seem very similar.

    Greetings antKat,

    Thank you for that interesting perspective which is appreciated.

    The interaction for an end user between a forum and Q&A is much different. A forum is an ongoing conversation whereas Q&A is just that - Questions and answers but certainly not an ongoing conversation by the forum members.

    Hope that gives you some clarification.

    Cheers, Joe
