Welcome to Spells of Magic, Bella. We generally have a lot of discussions in the chatter, some kind of silly, and others quite knowledgeable. Just depends on who is on, and what they know. Also, as you have found, we have the forums for just about anything, and everything.
We also have articles on the site, about it. The links are:
SoM Survival Guide
Getting Started on SoM
The Online Chatter. General knowledge on the chatter
Hope I helped.
