    I have several hobbies and they all have a few forums.

    Gaming, in order of activity: rpg.net, local Meetup site, Steve Jackson, Dumpshock, here. I drop in on Paranoia-Live and yog-sothoth.com (Cthulhu) from time to time.

    Motorcycles: Sport-Touring.net, Colorado Sportbike Club, Sportbikes.Net. I drop in on the SV forums, Transalp, Hayabusa.org, and MRA (local motorcycle racing group).

    Computers: slashdot, unix.com, currently hanging out on phpbuilder.com.

    As to mailing lists: Shadowrun, Sun-Managers, Virginia Sage, Colorado Sage, General Sage, Colorado Linux, Colorado Honda Sport-touring Association.

    That's all I can think of off hand. The first two or three on each are the ones I generally have up all the time and the others I'll drop in on when the "standards" aren't as busy or don't have threads I'm interested enough in to post.

    I prefer mailing lists to fourms. Less work on my part for the same degree of content. I check a dozen mailing lists in less time thant one fourm.

    Tesral, you could setup subscriptions to the forums you are interested in and receive an email when any new posts are made or even a daily digest if you prefer. Of course, you still have to login to be able to reply.

    Ayup, and there be the rub. I prefer not to subscribe, since I check the fourm at least once a day in any case. I just get an inbox full of notifications.

    Tesral strikes me as a person who has too many daily emails as it is . One thing I've really enjoyed about these polls is everybody seems to answer honestly. Polls on forums, in general, are worthless as often too many users pick the one answer that tells you nothing. Then you start to wonder how many people just voted for the hell of it and if the other votes, for the real choices, are reliable. Good stuff here

    I don't know of any other forums that are even close to this one, in any respect. RPG.net probably has a nice community but I don't know many of those people are active gamers. Just about anybody coming here is looking for a game, for players, or for gaming resources.

    Quite a few of the forums I frequent are run by the various gaming companies that are out there.

    Only one I'm interested in knowing about is RPG.net. Is that a fan site or does a gaming company actually own that one?

    I believe it's owned by a gaming company but not one that puts out games.

    http://www.skotos.net/

    It even has its own forum. But rpg.net may simply be a second project that happens to be owned by Skotos.

    I finally looked into it and it looks like RPG.net was a regular forum that got picked up by Skotos. Other than their RPG shop Skotos has done nothing with the website and appears to be content just owning it for the time being. So much wasted potential *shakes head*

    I had only been on WotC untill I saw a mention about this forum. Like was said earilier, the WotC boards seem to be a contest between a select few that are always on there. Some of those same few seem to get a lot of joy out of trashing others on there. Since coming on board here, I am mostly on this forum.
