: : I am from China. I want to know it you also have the similar slangs used in bbs meaning "post message". As in China we use a word that is related to "water". Also what do you call the person who takes charge of the bbs, is he a "boss" or something? thank you!
: A person that guides the discussions on bulletin boards is called a moderator. Is that what you mean?
to contribute a written message is usually called "posting" it and a short reference to a message is "a post".
As stated, "moderator" is the usual term for the person that supervises the board, but there are other more colloquial terms like "webmaster"
