There is a link in the documentation to the OAuth 2 specification that explains this better than I can in a message.

On the related note - I can see the ID (1536756) for the Soapbox (and other forums) from its URL, but not sure about the Lounge and the Insider (and a couple of others).
Of course, as you said, we will be having a list of them later, but can you please paste the IDs for the Lounge, the Insider and the Weird and the Wonderful, so that I can try get the posts for them as well?
Just noticed fid URL parameter while creating a new thread (and several other actions). I think that is it.
