How many Forums?

Recommended Posts

Since we have quite a nice variety of Brothers and Sister who come here and share - it got me wondering. I know that I also participate on some other Forums and I wondered if other on here also frequent additional Forums.


Now, let me say this ...... by Forum I mean just that - Discussion Forums - Not Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or any of those types of "Social Networks", I am only talking about Discussion Forums - like this one is. We don't have to actually NAME or LINK the forum, but maybe what type of forum it is - and you don't have to include THIS forum - we already know you are here :thumbsup:


I'll start:

  • Truck forum for the make truck I have
  • BBQ forum
  • Pizza forum
  • Tractor forum

and, occasionally:

  • Bread forum
  • Geek forum - mostly only when I need computer help


I am not on any other JW forums

As I used to be a heavy equipment repairman in the  I.U.O.E., I have a soft spot for yellow iron and like to read some of the antics that get posted on forums. 

Also, many years as a weldor, ironworker type, I enjoy some red iron talk at times.

My favorite site, before this one, was ShopFloorTalk. They had a wide range of people from all professions and you could get just about any questions answered pretty quickly and accurately. 

I also like reading on the air rifle forums, or just looking at the pictures of expensive  or unusual or rare pellet guns, some quite unique.


I don't participate much in any of them, except for here..:cowboy:

Currently I am not a member of any other JW forums. Some years ago was an active member of Heinz' JehovahBible which was later recycled as ScripturalDiscussion. Both forums disappeared a long time ago.


As for non-JW forums, I am the moderator of the Spanish-language support group for the Bible-study software e-Sword. E-Sword is a free software that allows to compare many different Bible translations, look up words in reference works, and the like. I answer the technical questions there and try hard to keep the forum clean of any doctrinal discussion.


I also ask or reply some question from time to time in the WordReference forums, dealing with English and Spanish usage and translation. Those forums are a really valuable resource for translators or anyone interested in language.

Besides this, I only use the Amercian Homebrewer's Association forum. I enjoy forums and would love to be a part of more, but just with this one and the other I get sucked in and lose track of time. I try to keep my priorities in check. Which for me can be difficult at times.

To help limit the time I spend on any and all forums I keep them "marked as read" and then only list "new posts". I look over the list of threads with new posts and only read those I have some interest in.


More threads make that cut on this forum than any other forum I am on.

I am not part of any other forums. I am still part of a teacher's collective that shares self made materials. I may use some of these resources as I am (volunteer) helping some home school families. I may need some help from Carlos group as the youth of my cong (as well as myself) wish to learn more Spanish.

Just here, no time for other forums

The same goes for me.  I have a facebook account but it is mostly because I heard that my sister was having medical problems and no one in the family reads e-mail anymore.  Had to use facebook to check on the family.  Then I went to cancel my facebook account and it kept failing to work.  Could not open the page for cancellation.
