What other forums do you participate in?
« on: January 24, 2016, 06:42:48 AM »
Have we ever asked this before.. What other forums on the internet do you participate in?

For me, DC is my only true home, but I do have an unhealthy obsession with my car (the codymobile, purchased with help from DC members), which has led to my frequent posting on a forum dedicated to my car model: http://clubsx4.com/forum

How about you folks?

I participate on BoardGameGeek and RPG StackExchange.  I've given up on regularly visiting any others- it turns into a real time-suck.

Only the (Dutch language) machine embroidery forum my wife had me start for her when her then-most-visited msn group on the subject ceased to exist, 7 years ago.
I'm the technical admin, and the (mostly) ladies frequenting the forum keep stuff alive there, posting new made work, and appraising the work of others :)

Mainly music these days now that I've retooled myself and am not as into computer tech as I used to be...except for the slowly dying FOSS vision and hope for the future.

My biggies:

TalkBass.com
BassOutpost.com

For general conversation (although I'm nowhere near as active as I once was) it's my original cyber-hangout The Well (thewell.com) which is the oldest and still IMO best. Or at least it was best once my own BBS (Port Zero) shut down way back in the lost mists of time.

P.S. Sure is quiet around here lately. Seems to be missing a lot of familiar avatars. What's up with that?

I participate on Windows OS forums.  Mainly:
http://www.tenforums.com/
http://www.eightforums.com/
http://www.sevenforums.com/
http://www.vistax64.com/

Windows 10 I don't have a machine to install it on the metal.  And Vista the traffic is very sparse.  So participation is limited for me on those.  But I still try to solve issues on W8 and W7 forums.

Also for programming:
https://autohotkey.com/boards/index.php
https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/

I used to participate on he C based languages forums but it is too cumbersome trying to keep a hand in while working out of a suitcase.  The scripting launguages are more suited to quick and dirty Windows utilities.

I dropped out of circulation IRL years ago, and...
Being more than just a bit of a misanthrope...I'm really only active here.

I've been an "irregular" on talkbass.com, drumforum.org lumberjocks.com, SimTropolis, and lately mytractorforum.com. Separately I check classifieds but don't really participate at sawmillcreek.org, harmonycentral.com. '

I also just discovered that links with square brackets don't work in BBCode  :)

Other forums I participate in that I've just started as of late:

Geekhack, Deskthority, and though Reddit isn't really a forum, I participate in /r/mk fairly regularly.

I have a presence elsewhere, but the username is different and I don't want to be associated with it here.

I'll start. Once upon a time, a child got a new pencil for his first day of school. He didn't have a pencil sharpener, though, so he located a pair of scissors...

What is that?

I get a 404 when I try it out. Some sort of exclusive club, I guess. :P

Yes... just used to typing /r/mk, but it's /r/mechanicalkeyboards
