I am not exactly "new" but I redownloaded the app and signed into my account again after not using it for a while, and I am not sure how the forums and stuff work anymore! What's the difference between comments/replies? And it seems that some are out of order? I can't figure that out. I know these probably have obvious answers but I tried to find a forum topic that already answered this and I can't find it.

If you comment, what you write ends up like this, as a comment under the post.

Whereas if you reply, your reply forms a new post. This happens whether you use the reply button in the upper right corner or the small reply button underneath a post.

New posts in a topic bumps the thread up to the top of the active topics, comments do not. I prefer using them like this: when replying to the original topic, I use reply. If someone comments on my reply, I continue using comment to discuss with them. To reply to another person in the thread, ie not the original poster, I use comment. And also if I simply don't want to bump up the thread for some reason.

Hope this explains it!

About comments and replies being out of order. It happens if people use reply to reply to comments and so on, everything gets jumbled up. There are also cases where the original poster for some reason deletes other's comments, making the thread look like they're talking to themselves. Other people's replies in turn are not possible to delete.

If you reply, the topic will be marked as watched for you and is shown in watched topics.
If you just commend, it doesn't. If you want to watch, you have to activate it.

Yes! I was gonna point that out too but forgot. Thanks for clarifying. :)
