    I'm curious - isn't that how these all start??? In anycase, I was wondering today how many other roleplaying forums our members actively frequent. As for me, just keeping up with all the topics on this forum is a full load. I occasionally visit wizards.com community, and the forums over at enworld.org. I almost never post there though, so I couldn't categorize myself as active in either.

    How about you? How many and which ones?

    I also visit wizards forums with some regularity. I guess my posting there was always a bit sporadic depending how much time I had on my hands. My visiting there has declined greatly since I found this site and the 4e nonsense changed Wizards. It just never really felt like home.

    I also visit enworld occasionally, although I was never very active there.

    I visit the forums of a local game shop once in a while. I used to be the top poster there. It was surprisingly active and friendly, until the spam started coming in like rain in a typhoon. Everyone became increasingly irritated that every other post was spam for porn sites and cheap airfare. The owner deleted every account and made it private. Then the site was hacked and down for over a month. Then he changed hosts. Now the site is nearly dead as only a handful of members bothered to continue.

    There was another site I used to visit daily. It was a site where my PBP games were held. It suddenly fell off the edge of the internet one day without warning. Myself and another Mod tried repeatedly to contact the sites owner via his home and work emails, but never got any response as to what happened.

    Currently, I find myself visiting here most often. Lucky you ! There's no place like home, there's no place like home,...

    I peruse bits of RPGNet from time to time, and recently I've started frequenting Basic Roleplaying Central, especially since the author of the upcoming Basic Roleplaying omnibus answers questions there.
    "On two occasions I have been asked [by members of Parliament], 'Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?' I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question."

    Hey cool, I was considering doing a thread just like this.

    Anyway, I voted "more than 5" because I visit:
    Eden Studios

    Cafe Risque

    The RPG Site

    The Master's Council

    The ShadowRun

    rpg.net

    Misfit Studios (Based in Toronto for our Canadian roleplaying brethren)

    And of course, here!

    This is it unless I'm directed elsewhere and then I go, look, and done.

    I'm a ChrOp'er

    so most of my activity is in that Wizard's forum. I used to post elsewhere in the forums (rules related: races, spells, feats, etc...) but a lot of those turned into quote fest pissing matches, so I pretty much frequent the CO now because they play and think the way I do...

    I used to frequent WotC for both D&D and d20 Modern, but I found that it is very confrontational on those boards. So, I limit my posts there. I frequent the Basic Role-Playing forums often lately in anticipation of the release of the new edition of the Basic Role-Playing system by Chaosium. I just recently discovered the Retro-Clone games by Goblinoid Games, and so I joined their forums as well. I very occasionally check out GURPS, Mongoose, and White Wolf forums as well. Lastly, my group has a private forum that we use for most of our RPG posts, and general BS.

    I sometimes check a forum/group on myspace if that counts.

    I'm a member of wizards, and the forums from a local club at my university.

    Wizards has too much stuff going on, and the local forums are as dead as they come.

    I mainly go here since I get good answers to my questions and I don't have to worry about my post being buried before anybody even looks at it.

    Great community here, keep it up!

    I was amazed to see how many members are active in other forums. However, I am not ashamed to say that I currently only visit this one. I visited Wizards for several weeks before I found this website. Once I started posting here I knew I was home. I do visit other forums on occasion but only to read. I am drawn more to quality (PNPG) than quantity (WOTC). The knowledgeable and experienced members here put other forums to shame.

    While I used to visit a great deal of non-RPG forums before I revived my love for pen and paper gaming, I have pretty much gone dormant in them all since I have taken up residency here. Between visiting PNPG, working from home, reading novels, and reading pen and paper material, I have no time, nor desire, to "shop around"
