    Is there any other community like the MacRumors one? Like lets say for, Sony or something? Because I've never really seen a message board like this for anything else especially this big!

    There are other boards, but I believe this is one of the largest and most active.

    This MR 'Community' board isn't that active. I wish I could post general questions on 'iPhone' board to have more broader range of answers and reactions.

    Notebook review isn't bad either but they only have a small section for Macs.

    I respect users more who don't put 99.9% of their posts in the iPhone section. Everyone is grumpy and snappy in a bad way in that section.

    DSL Reports aka Broadband Reports is a big site with lots of forums. Handy front page with newslinks etc.

    Here's a kind of overview of the site as far as usage, type of user..

    http://www.dslreports.com/who

    Here's their forum list - for you Canadians, they cover your ISPs too

    http://www.broadbandreports.com/forums/all

    Enjoy! But don't get lost over there permanently :)

    It's rare for a company to be treated like a religion :p

    And there are communities like this for brands like Bimmers.

    Oh there is also HoFo.

    I am a member of many different forums, road racing(not street racing), 2.3L Turbocharged Ford engines, trucking, car audio, a specific International diesel engine, ect,..

    Some are very specific and some are pretty broad in scope. All have a close community of people who often meet in person. I even took a cross country trip in my car that was only possible because of one of those forums. I had a string of jobs that was made possible by the forums too. Whenever I'm looking up some new or interesting topic the first thing I try to find is a forum that covers that topic.

    For anything there is to be interested in, there is a board for it. Believe me.

    As for me, I'm a moderator at the biggest proper community in Norway, over 175 000 members now. Considering that we live in a very small country with a small amount of people, that's not bad. It all started with discussions about motherboards and PSUs, now it's a general board to discuss anything.

    But, the challenge lies in finding the most popular one.

    I was trying to find a board for G1 Android and also a board for Verizon, but I couldn't tell which one is the most active for each. It wasn't that easy or simple to do.

    +1. I'm a member of an Acura forum called Acurazine and its incredible how many people are on it. Everyone is friendly too- as in no "piss fest" threads.
