      D2JSP is a forum that was started, not to discuss Diablo 2, but the distribute a an automated bot for Diablo 2. Diablo 2 Javascript Parser was the name of the bot. But now, the owner of the site denies existence of bots and will ban for the discussion of.

  • Carlos MV

    great list

  • Kayleigh

    I thought IMDB would have been on this list to be honest

    • Nice suggestion. do you know how big the IMDB community is?

  • Resveratrol

    60,600 users at any given time on 4chan… I’ve only been to a few boards, but it’s known that some of them refresh at such a quick rate is almost impossible to keep up.

  • jarowdowsky

    Hmm, interesting list but you seem to have been a bit random with what you’ve included?

    Seems like the stats are from the big boards ranking –

    But you’ve removed Jogos from Brazil and if your excluding Vault Networks as an IGN board then shouldn’t Doctissimo but up there as well?

  • Claypot

    Wow, 4chan wasn’t number 1? wow, i guess video games > porn 😛 ahahaahahaha

  • wtf

    how isnt reddit on here

  • Murphy

    Seriously guys. You’ve missed IMBD, Facebook, Myspace, Reddit, Digg, YouTube, OKCupid, to name but a few.

    Number 10 has 200 users at a time? That’s nothing in in internet community terms.

    • bebop

      They’re not necessarily communities. As in, you have to add someone to be their friends.

    The most larger community

    • localholic

      i agree with you

    • hendry

      hahahha.. im the kaskus-holic too… 🙂

  • Deathgleaner


    how come i’ve never heard of any of these except for 2?

    • yagi antenna

      Same here. I’m wondering how accurate this list is. I’ve only head of one before. makes me think…

  • Matthew

    Dear Toptenz: Please make a list on top 10 4chan pranks 😛

  • Discuss Anime Online

    I’ve never heard of any of these and yet they are all so darn popular! D= … I am a self confessed internet failure </3

    the best community ever is steam and minecraft communties

    • DavidSights

      I’ve just downloaded Minecraft PE and it’s becoming clear to me that there is an invisible yet robust community backing for it. I had no idea it existed until I had to search for random things for the game. Trying to troubleshoot a problem, such as animals constantly spawning in the ocean, lead to reading lots of forums dedicated to the game itself.

  • DavidSights

    I’m curious about if all of these communities are bigger than those such as Twitter and Facebook. Perhaps this is focused of forums only, but I think online communities which allow people to meet, socialize, and share in any form can be considered in the same realm as the sites listed here. Am I the only one who feels that this article is a little outdated? (After scrolling up to see that the earliest comment was posted in 2010, yes it’s obvious that this article is dated.)

  • Hemendra Kumar Saini

    Dude you forgot about daniweb, it has more than 1 million registered users and is one of the popular forum about programming, codes and internet.

  • David Roch John

    The biggest is actually [email protected] It has more than 79789,000,875,113,910,654 posts and more than 288,987,198,011 users.

  • unknow

    where is kaskus ? (from indonesia), kaskus should be in number 3 ,they have bigger member and thread more than d2jsp

  • DesuMaiden

    This article is outdated.

  • Brian Curtis

    As far as phpbb – you have Gaia – which is the largest (over 1 billion posts) but hardly phpbb anymore since they have rewritten much of the code. The next largest english speaking (and larger than the next non-english phpbb board) is JLA FORUMS – with over 306,000,000 posts. Next I think is forum – but not sure how many posts they have.

  • iwillmakeyousqueal

    the guy who wrote this article is a moron
    ”in 1995 most people didn’t know what the internet is because there was no pornography”
    what a moron.A lot of people knew what the internet was at that time including me

    • Shell Harris

      Sometimes our humor misses the mark. We were kidding about pornography being the reason for the Internet and we believe most people were not familiar with Internet in 1995. If for no other reason access was so difficult and slow for many potential users – modems were only 28.8k at that time. We could be wrong, but we feel our opinion is valid and certainly debatable.

    Dear all, can some one help me? The business world is moving faster and changing more global, more mobile, or tracking company news on social media is second nature to many professionals in today’s world. To make the most of these trends, organizations need to take a more strategic approach to how they design and organize the workplace. In addition, members of a few generation are entering the workforce in large numbers.

    To avoid these issues and capitalize on the new ways that employees work, organizations should consider a digital workplace to achieving continued productivity and competitive advantage will require much more significant changes to the way people work.

    Where is Reddit at?

  • Ashley

    Nice post.

  • fc uk buddy

    been checking far east forums and there’s a lot of chatter for the asian markets making runs on italian, greek and spanish banks (they have a large window of opportunity before european markets open) as they are weakest and worst hit on friday and also rumours confirmed in american forums that they intend to withdraw funds from the ENTIRE EU (they are comparing the entire EU set up to the Enron scandal) and intend to invest it in UK and Japanese markets if not their own markets starting on monday and until the end of the month and possibly beyond.
    Middle East are yet to decide but it is believed they will follow suit with the asian markets and bet against the euro (especially as it was reported the ECB print 80 million euro’s a month and they are still struggling) and no gold reserves to back any new money printed so the euro WILL crash badly all week and maybe all summer.
    The GB£ looks like it might rocket up to new highs following these events starting on monday as the world demands to look at the EU audits reports for last 20 years and why they haven’t been signed off (ENRON!).
