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.
None. You're lucky I even answered this poll...
Just this one.
4-5 others. Some might say I am a forum addict.
More than 5. Who needs sleep anyway?
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.
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
Is there any other forum worthy of our consideration?
Thanks to all the mods and Farcaster for a great site!!
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.
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.
It even has its own forum. But rpg.net may simply be a second project that happens to be owned by Skotos.
This one, rpg.net, and one related to whatever game I am currently playing/running
i used to post on a world of warcraft one. but since i stopped playing.. well the obvious. just this one now
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.
