Where did you rack up the most posts while AI was gone?

post #1 of 55
Thread Starter 
For me, it was the <a href="http://forum.interference.com/cgi-bin/u2feedback/Ultimate.cgi" target="_blank">Interference Forums</a>

I spent most of my time there and now my post count stands at 1079, I have over 200 posts at SomethingAwful under a different name while I have 2056 at Ars Technica (though most of those were racked up prior to the blackout)

<a href="http://www.orangeinsider.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi" target="_blank">OrangeInsider</a>. I have somewhere near 3000 posts on the old forums and 300 something or something on the new ones. Not that post counts mean anything to me anymore or anything.

I also posted at MacNN a little, but I mostly lurked there. Bad Flamingo on occasion, but the forums always acted funny for me. I started a few forums that were really stupid. I ended up registering a bunch of names and had conversations with myself so it would look like people were posting there. I don't think anyone else registered.

I'm now up to the 240's at MacNN and before AI went down I was at the low 100s.

I spent about a day at MacNN, another couple months at Ars Technica, but finally settled in at <a href="http://www.gamingforce.com/forums" target="_blank">Gamingforce</a> (which has pretty decent forums, even if they're a little kooky).

All in all I racked up about 700 posts outside AI.
I'm not going anywhere.

MacNN and Planetarion.com mainly (the latter is full of very wierd and immature little boys, but if you avoid General Discussion or any thread with FS in the title, you're usually fine.)

I didn't do that much posting while AI was down. I posted a little at MacNN but mainly lurked there and at OrangeInsider and Pink Flamingo a little.

Um, <a href="http://www.pinkflamingo.com" target="_blank">Pink Flamingo</a>? You naughty little saucepot. You were having all the fun while the rest of us posted at Bad Flamingo.

After AI vanished...

I slowly began to move towards MacNN...

I thought badflamingo was a sad substitute for AI...

MacObserver Forums... took some of my time...

Think Secret is too "Eye Candy" and gets tired after a while...

OrangeInsider is too Orange...

Man! I am glad AI is back...

MacNN is still a good place to post...

I would say the best two places are AI and MacNN...

Think Secret has a bad forum software. Blech.

Doesnt get much traffic either...

It's a shame 68K decided to stay there instead of come back.

Pfft, I'm sure he'll come back soon. Meanwhile, I will freak out:

I started off with MacNN, found it to be slow... moved over to ArsTechnica and MacAddict.

I wasn't too active here - but when AI went down, I stumbled across to Think Secret and saw 68K and Bodhi, which were two names I remembered from here. (ThinkSecret's board was not well designed I felt.) Anyway, I was told about BadFlamingo and spent most of my time there. Not a high posting though.

Also lurked at MacNN and Orange occassionally.
Anyway it's good to see AI backup and running!

I spent most of my time at MacNN.. Pretty good forums, but a little too white. Alot of the AI refugees went there. They have a good Mac OS X general discussion, but it got pretty hot and stupid in the time of the OS X beta builds.. (ie: 4k.., 5F, 5G64) , ("4K78 is GM!" - "no it isn't you f*ck!") <img src="graemlins/bugeye.gif" border="0" alt="[Skeptical]" />

I'm a senior member there now, with over 120 posts orso..

MacNN
Ars
BadFlamingo
ThinkSecret
OrangeInsider

MacNN and Ars have enough traffic to sustain a discussion but I like the people at BadFlamingo and OrangeInsider better. They were mostly AI refugees. I also posted semi-regularly at ThinkSecret. Everytime I started a thread there it always got a lot of views. A few times we got some decent discussions going too. I kind of liked the challenge of helping to try and get that board off the ground. It's just taking a little longer than I had hoped to get the bugs out of their forum software but I do like the idea they have of trying a different way to present a forum.

With AI back up <img src="graemlins/beerchug.gif" border="0" alt="[Cheers]" /> I don't know how much time I'll spend on those other boards. Maybe I'll still be visiting MacNN with some frequency.

While AI was down I moved from a MacNN Newbie to a Veteran Member with like 344 posts now... I got addicted to arguing with them.

Heh, I had a stint moderating for Wincent.org, then his boards degraded and now no longer work. Then I Moderated for Appleonlooker. That was interesting, but not quite what I had in mind, and I posted a bit at ThinkSecret, Maccentral, and MacNN.

Here's hoping that AI is back for a long time. <img src="graemlins/biggthumpup.gif" border="0" alt="[Thumbs Up]" />

Anything with AppleOnlooker is interesting... Looks like they've pulled an AI.com

with their "republishing soon"-esque message...

C'Mon guys! Finish the design! I'm in need of a good laugh!

Just what I did... However, MacNN was my main hangout. I love the OS X developer forum!

I went to BadFlamingo a few days after the site started up. I got elected as a Mod, racked up over 500 posts (highest at the boards), and then got booted from my mod status when I announced that I thought BadFlamingo would suffer now that AI was back up.

Haven't made a post there since.
