When you add a new discussion Web to the current Web, the filesof the first discussion Web are overwritten.
The Discussion Web Wizard creates the names of the pages using analgorithm that uses the name of the discussion group entered in thewizard. If both of your discussion Webs have similar names, the filesof the first discussion Web may be overwritten. This problem occursonly if both discussion Webs are created in the same Web.
To work around this problem, use either of the following methods.

Method 1

Create your second discussion web in a separate subweb. Doing thisremoves all possibility of conflict.

Method 2

If you want both discussion webs to reside in the same Web, makesure that the first four characters of each discussion group areunique. You can do this by making sure that either the first fourcharacters of the discussion title are different, or by making sure thatthe title contains two or more words separated by spaces.
