    Do you go to any other Forums or is MacRumors the only one? It doesn't have to be about Mac or computers. MacRumors will always be my favorite. :)
    I go to a new site called Mac4iPod, it new (I'm a Mod there). :)

    You mean... there are other forums out there? :eek:

    I have a peek at quite a few as the mood takes me but the main ones are the forums over at MacNN (mainly the PowerMac and GUI boards), Snopes and Fortean Times – the latter two more than satisfying my required daily fix of weird stuff.

    However, MacRumors is the only forum I'm actually signed up to. :)

    The forum I frequented before Macrumors (and have over 3,000 posts) was Gone Gold. But that site went to site heaven in October of last year. Now the only forum I really post in is here, but I also occasionally lurk and post at www.consolegold.com (a sister site to the late Gone Gold... :( )

    Question is:

    Do you use the same name in each forum you hang out in?



    I use a different one for each forum I visit:

    www.prepressforums.com
    www.digitalspy.co.uk
    www.quark.com
    www.macosxhints.com

    And also three other forums which shall remain nameless, one of them work-related...

    MR is my current fave because of the variety and depth of topics, and also the quality of its members and their contributions. :)

    http://forum.macformat.co.uk/

    UK based Forum that sprang out from the well establised magazine of the same name.

    Not as big as Macrumors but dosn't bet bogged down with posts that have 200+ replies either.

    Well worth a look.

    MacRumors is my one and only. I would feel like I betrayed if I went elsewhere.

    Macnn, Applelinks and AppleDiscussions are the others. I have more time (and posts) in at AppleDiscussions and continue to contribute, but have warmed to MR since coming aboard recently for two basic reasons: (1) The regulars and community here have not only shown they're knowledgeable, proficient and good to go on anything, technical, but (2) they also have a sense of humor and a "what box?" kind of free spirit which comes out in their creative and articulate postings.

    P.S. I'm not suggesting we now hold hands and sing Cumbaya or anything. Just an observation.

    Why aren't the Appleinsider and ThinkSecret forums as popular as MacRumors? You'd think ThinkSecret would be popularest since they are usually the first to get the inside scoop, but no... there forums are 1/10th as busy as this forum. Why?

    btw, I visit Slashdot, 2-Pop, DVINFO.net, homerecording.com, Creative Cow, Ars Technica, Revscene.net, Consumption Junction, and Lucid dream.

    MacRumors ALL the way!........

    .... I use to do "YourMacLife" Forums from time to time and although there are some nice people, there are also a bunch of pretentious know it all's. They would rather attack you for your lack of knowledge on a subject then help you. I think they are missing the whole point of Forums.

    ON the other hand, most of the people on MacRumors Forums are the BEST! Patient and HELPFUL!

    This is the only forum I post in, but I do go to other Mac rumors sites. Not really sure why I only go to this forum, guess I am just used to the way things are set up. I have also gotten used to a lot of the member names and enjoy reading everyones entries.
