I am trying to understand the relationship of all the tables of AskBot and so far I am not getting very far. I don't see for example how exactly a Thread relates to a Post (just to name one relationship). Is there an existing database schema that explains these relationships? Or a tool that would allow me an easy to understand schema? Thank you for any help!

There might be some tool like that, created for Django. Perhaps someone else can give a specific answer.

I cannot attach images because I don't have enough points. But here's the link to the schema in SVG format that I generated with PyCharm.

But because it is auto-generated it gives too much information. I think it would be so much more helpful for new askbot developers to have a manually created schema that concentrates on the most important objects and their relationships (threads, posts, revisions, users, etc)

There is probably a better tool, maybe even something that inspects the SQL tables directly.
