Other internet communities
« on: October 17, 2015, 10:37:18 PM »
Are you involved in any other internet communities or fora? Outside of here, facebook, or twitter.  Would you recommend them to others?  What's good and or bad about them?

Well, as many know I'm a major poster on ISF. And yes, ISF has its critics. Personally, I love it.

I'm also a moderator at the Australasian Skeptics Forum, and we'd love to have more Australasians there, as it's pretty quiet and dull right now. The forum is focused on issues that affect Australia and New Zealand, but we welcome posters from all over the world. We've actually got a pair of antivaxxers resident if you like that sort of thing. And quarky, who is... unique.

Apart from that, Facebook. But I'm pretty picky about who I put on my friends list.

I'm also on a music forum.  It's full of hippies.  My participation there dates back to the days when I was a big fan of the band Phish.  So yeah, hippies.

I'm semi-active on ootpdevelopments.com/board, which is a forum dedicated to a micromanagement-intensive baseball simulation (kind of like Football Manager, only for baseball, and because it's for baseball it's a bit more stat-heavy and pays a bit more attention to the history of the game than FM). Lately I've been mostly posting in their hidden politics forum because I know a few of the people there and a couple others are batshit insane, but I also post quite a bit on the regular boards themselves when I get the inkling to because I know my way around the... man, I hesitate to even call it a game, even though you can definitely play it like a game. It's more like a tool to simulate fake baseball seasons for fun and profit.

Otherwise, does reddit count? Because that's the main other place, I guess. Oh, and a third small bulletin board that is mostly dedicated to one OOTP league, which has a person on it who I think I ran out of the SGUF because I post here too much and am annoying.

I am most active on a site called Unexplained Mysteries, a fringe forum but with a healthy number of knowledgeable skeptics and the true crazies are less common than at sites like Above Top Secret.
 Otherwise I am a member of ISF and Rational Skepticism. The later spun off of the Richard Dawkins forum when it closed.
