I have been a member on the edaboad.com from the beginning, not sure, like 15 years or so.

There are 3 kinds of people in this world, those who can count and those who can not.

I help on moderating an electronics forum aimed at projects and DIY: http://eletronicasilveira.forumeiros.com
And always visit some really good laptop forums like http://www.bufanxiu.com and http://vlab.su

I also contribute and moderate in a brazilian electronics forum at http://www.eletronicabr.com

Eletronicabr is an electronics forum aimed at servicing electronics devices (mainly laptops, computers and tablets). The forum has grown up and now we have lots of other areas like software, security and networking. There's a great database of datasheets and schematics, specially of laptop motherboards. We are over 20K users and going up.

Dave's videos always show up there! :)

You find a way to call it legitimate "research" :-)

As for my forums, apart from here, I keep an eye on dangerousprototypes.com, a few subreddits, geekzone.co.nz, and far too many youtube channels.

diyaudio is a fave of mine.  I am also pretty active on amb.org (DIY kit maker for digital and analog audio).

yahoo tek scopes list is useful for that gear.

beyhond that, I'll search for answers and read the forum that comes up in the search.  adafruit is good for some things, the arduino guys are good for some things, too.

I try to stick to as few forums as possible otherwise it takes me too much time. For now I like EEVblog. Over here I don't get a ban for saying 'PIC stands for Pic Is Crap'.
There are small lies, big lies and then there is what is on the screen of your oscilloscope.

diyaudio is pretty good, but it is hard to avoid the audiophoolery/just plain wrong-ness sometimes, though,m it is pretty good as far as that goes for an audio forum.

Here, obviously; Dutchforce, t3h GeeK ZonE (if you follow much tube/hifi audio, you might know its owner, Gregg?), and also dA (diyAudio, mentioned earlier) from time to time.

I often do that. I'll join, ask a question, stay around to say thanks and discuss, usually get sucked into a few other threads, and then I'm out by a dozen or two posts.
The only other forum I frequent these days (but not so much any more) is an atheist forum.

Which actually means you're an atheist with another label, congratulations  :-+

Part of the indoctrination sticks, but it can lead to some fun debates if I am in the mood. Then again there are the Jehova's Witnesses down the road, right next door to the Scientologists, and the cluster of other churches as well and the local Mosque. At work there is the Dutch Reformed Church next door, and the Anglican right behind, and then the local prayer room across the street. All quite agreeable and willing to talk to each other, practical people who try to help all those in need. That is the one good point about organised religion.

I've never used Electronics forums much. But these days I lurk around here, and on Martin Lorton's site.
