      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.

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

    1. TopTenz Master at |

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

    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.

    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?

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

    how isnt reddit on here

  9. Murphy at |

    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.

    1. bebop at |

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

    the best community ever is steam and minecraft communties

    1. DavidSights at |

      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.

  18. DavidSights at |

    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 Am I the only one who feels that this article is a little outdated?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.)

  19. Hemendra Kumar Saini at |

    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.

  20. David Roch John at |

    The biggest is actually onTRAC@HTMLfun. It has more than 79789,000,875,113,910,654 posts and more than 288,987,198,011 users.

    This article is outdated.

    As far as phpbb – you have Gaia – http://www.gaiaonline.com 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 – http://www.jlaforums.com with over 306,000,000 posts. Next I think is Bokt.nl forum – http://www.bokt.nl but not sure how many posts they have.

    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

    1. Shell Harris at |

      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.
