What are some niche communities you enjoy? | Hacker News

quote [ I do volunteer trail maintenance on the Pacific Crest Trail with the PCTA. It's a great way to get outside and do some physical labor for those of us who sit in a cube 40+ hours per week. ]

Nerd talk about hobby communities. SDF sounded interesting – an inspiration for newer sites like tilde.club.

https://tildes.net/ - is looking to be the new redditor's reddit. I have 5 invites if someone wants in. :)

Because there's probably something very wrong with me, I like to pop in to r/wearethemusicmakers from time to time just to see how much boneheaded ignorance, heartbreaking naivety, and infuriating Dunning-Kruger hubris I can stomach in one sitting.

On the opposite end of the spectrum the Gearslutz forums are a great place to watch cranky old recording industry grognards argue for years on end about $10,000 microphones.

Visiting the super chill synth-bros over at r/synthesizers is like a refreshing vacation to Portland, OR, only the coffee isn't as good.

Finally, r/guitar is a good place to learn whatr/guitarcirclejerk is making fun of this week but otherwise it's pretty useless.

Serving the neo community since '99.

I should have specified. Neo-geo.com/forums the war room and unrelated forums. Best of also is full of gold

The forums used to get hacked and comically defaced for lols all the time in the early 2000s, frauds involving tens of thousands of dollars have been committed, theres a convicted murderer (Waseem Dakker featured in 60 minutes and dateline) was a prominent member by the handle Bibliophile.

That place is nuts
