time Collaborative Information in Interactive Virtual Message Boards

This article relates to the public display of interactive online message board information in aggregated ways, forming different exhibition areas.

Internet forums and bulletin systems also aggregate collaborative information , but the visual language is different from what is proposed herein . Current methods focus on a dynamic presentation controlled by the individual user, which does not accommodate a situation in which many people are simultaneously viewing the interface .

Another kind of related public display, for example, is the one used in airports for showing information about the flights. The information, however, is confined to

whatever the airport wants to publish; therefore, it is a limited solution that does not consider the collaborative aspect of the incoming information .

This discussion refers to content as information and /or data that can be produced and consumed by users. In the normal case, content is text, but it may also be media (e.g., images, video).

The novel contribution is a system, method, and graphical design that provides user- experience functions using a set of graphical interfaces and tools for users that enables the creation and edition of interactive online message boards . The database engine contains:

• List of templates for general Shared Message Board layout • List of templates for content layout
• List of templates for graphical objects

An engine is responsible for coordinating the relationship between content publishers , content recipients, and content information subscribers. Another engine promotes virtual collaboration through a messaging system. The collaborative user experience provided by the system is promoted by the use of the user interfaces and the associated graphical designs.

A graphical object has presentation parameters and behavioral parameters . Presentation paramet...
