What forums do you visit?

#1 Post by cloudyssky » Wed May 26, 2010 12:30 pm

Besides here of course, what other forums do you visit?
As for me, just 4chan. (If you're familiar with the site, I visit /a/ and /jp/ constantly. I never go into /b/). Some of the Japanese boards there help inspire me when writing and drawing.
So how about you guys? What forums do you go to when you're not here?

Mostly just DeviantArt. It's really the only place I see anime art since I don't actually watch anime that much anymore. I use it as an inspiration wellspring, not just for anime but for graphic design and other forms of illustration as well. I don't usually read fiction there, however. I also don't really visit the forum, so this might be beside the point to the OP question. XD

Seconded x'D;

I don't visit forums anymore, really. I spend my idle times reading manga online, looking at dA, lurking here, reading/watching blogs of people/artists I like, and twitter C:

Just DA...

Recently I try MangaTutorial Forum, but the people there aren't as fun as here, so I rarely post things there.

Oh, I used to visit LautanIndonesia forums, but don't know why I couldn't open the pages anymore (it's so slow to just open the login page, so I never bother anymore).

-__- Well, um, Gaia Online. -hope she doesn't get shot-
I usually only go there to roleplay (but only with one group) and write stories in their Writer's Contest Forum.

And here of course. And dA! <3

I used to be active on Ichigo's Forums, when their roleplay was stil strong. It's otaku level was rather similar to this place. XD;; I don't know now.
When I was younger, I used to be part of the FET Forums as well (it was the forum for Prince of Tennis manga subbers, I think) before it died. -_-; I was very sad, but by then it was taken over by rabid fangirls. Seriously. Fangirls (and fanboys, sometimes) ruin EVERYTHING.
But when you have a series that has a lot of guys, it was bound to happen. XD

Lots of. I used to be an active (at least, quite active) user of few large communities, but those are old times. I usually lurk at TIGsource, Deviant Art and official SC2 forums (yeah, I'm a fan of Starcraft), and of course here :) While it's just mostly lurking, I sometimes drop a post here and there :D and propably anger some people to the extent.

Until not so long ago, I was also a often visitor of http://mangaforum.dmkproject.pl/forum/, which is one of the largest and most active polish boards for manga/anime fans, but I don't go there anymore.

Why are you all telling the name of various sites, while cloudsky asked only for *forums*? =P If so, this thread should be more of a "What other sites and places on net do you visit" :)

Hey I go on Gaia too! =) Not as much as I usually did though for pretty much the same reason's. Though instead of writing I usually lurk around their art forums. Roleplaying with a friend (it was friends but now most have pretty much put a hand to my face or vanished from the face of the earth and don't talk to me for some reason.)

I don't talk as much but I still visit Beyond the Camera's Lens quite often. (cause I am that much of a dork for this game.)

Partially Active on DA. Though it is definitely my least active site of all active sites.

Also recently got into SekaiProject forums. Though I haven't visited too much recently due to school/life.

Highest Active Site, even higher than here is e-shuushuu.net <33 It's a wonderful community and I think I would be lost without it.

Tried to get into AnimeSuki's forums. Though I just can't get into it. Might try later *shrugs*

I mainly lurk there because I like people who respect each other past their given opinions.
I also go on Novelty forum, some blogs from planet.renai.us (mainly sake bento's, samu kun's and deji's), information sites such as anidb, otaku tabloid sankaku complex, music ans audio related forums, game dev forums (even though I don't post there).
Recently Tom on IRC (on freenode.net servers and #renpy for people who want to join!) put a link towards a great info board about indie games
I've began to go there on a daily basis since then.

I'm not really active on any forums...I'm too much of a lurker ^^;

I usually only check random Pokémon forums for game news/discussions lol, and umm, admittedly I sometimes like Gaia as well. Though I couldn't care less about 99% of the site, I'm just there for the art haha.

Same thing here, too. The Gaia Part. I also forgot to mention i'm a member of the Sekai Project Forums...
