    Generally "forums", unless you want to sound pretentious. Maybe "fora" is better in some written contexts, but it is becoming more common to use English rather than Latin plurals for Latin-derived words.
    A lot of terms such as this are in a state of change:
    formulas / formulae
    a piece of data / a datum
    ...
    In fora such as this, I'd use 'forums'
