    When I first went out looking for a forum to join, admitting it was down to two which included this one, but in the end I went with the other because the member I was "cyber-stalking" was more active on the other forum, and she wasn't much help talking me out of a dog *cough-Enda-cough*. I don't think she even comes here anymore.

    Anyway, I'm on; PDGS, Big dogs porch (a member of the first one dragged me there), Cool-2b-Corgi, and some "groups" on Flickr, Yahoo (don't post on any of those, I get updates on herding events), and Facebook. I do still believe I've WAY over stepped my limit on how much I ever should be on/part of, which is why half of everything gets neglected most of the time, I'm sad to admit to not going back to C2BC in months, again, but I'm just so busy!

    Lab-Retriever is the one I'm most active on. I'm also a member of Dog Food Chat.

    I'm on quite a few more, but I rarely (if ever) use them anymore.

    I used to be on the Acme boards. It was more than 10 years ago...I was going by Spooky there. I still remember some of the dog folk that used to hang around there.

    Just Chaz at the moment. I lurk on a couple others but don't post anymore. One I will post on occasionally but it's not very active to begin with.


    ETA: I just joined Gallifrey Base, but not sure if I'll stick around. Takes me a few months to decide usually ;)

    but other than this I am also on an aussie forum :) not as active as you guys but I do try to post/dabble a bit

    I was part of a chihuahua forum for a while but umm..ya..no. never again.

    Acme's been gone for almost 10 years now. I can't remember exactly when it shut down, but it was within a couple of months after Mick was diagonised with laryngeal paralysis. That was in April of 2002.

    I tried one other, but it was slow. Chazhound is it for me.

    I'm a member at DogForum, and some other one, but I haven't checked in there in months. Or years even. So chaz, you are my one and only <3

    Hm, well I started on DogForums but don't post as much there anymore for a lot of reasons.

    Also was a member of a couple fish (aquarium) forums but I haven't visited them in well over a year, or a couple years. Mostly active there when I was first setting up my tanks.

    Also a member of BackyardChickens though I mostly lurk and learn. I despise their new website format though (recently revamped their website) so haven't even lurked much in a while.

    Mostly just here and even here I mainly lurk. I used to be a lot more active when I was younger, but the boards I frequented either closed or slowly died or I just got too busy to keep up with it. I was on a health forum for many years that slowly died.

    I spend most of my time on a sheltie forum and FB dog groups for shelties and GSDs, just recently started visiting here recommended by a member.

    This is the only one...well...except for a writing forum that I joined a long time ago. But I hardly visit on there much lately. I don't spend much time on the Internet at all unless there's something specific I need to research. That sure has changed since I first joined Chaz. I was addicted almost. But I've drastically curtailed myself and am keeping busy with other things.

    I'm most active here on Chazhound and my cornsnake community.

    I'm also a member of a sugar glider forum which I visit infrequently at best, and a cat forum that I haven't been to in so long that I don't remember the name of it. :rofl1:

    I'm registered on countless forums but the ones I regularly participate in are much fewer.

    Besides Chaz I am also on
    -a betta forum called Ultimate Bettas; though I don't get on as often now
    -a rat forum called RatShack; but I usually just lurk as I'm ratless now
    -and a hamster forum called HamsterHideout; in which I am a mod and spend way too much time on it. :p

    I used to try and keep up with a forum for each kind of pet I had, but the cat forums were always so boring; unlike the wonderful felines themselves.

    Pettalk. Though I don't post there as much as I do here, I love it just the same.

    Im a member on Pirate4x4 Alaska4x4network UbuntuForums PetOfTheDay. I am still a member of a few fish/aquarium forums but I rarely ever visit them since I havent had any active tanks in 5 years or so. I was a member of DogForums but Im banned there, the mods there dont follow their own TOS.

    Most of my 'forum' time is spent on Reddit, then on chaz. I am a member of dogforums and pets.ca, but I don't really lurk or post there unless chaz is down. I MUCH prefer chaz.

    I am a member of COTH (chronicle of the horse) and EMG, another horse one. I go there occasionally. I am a member of a dressage board that is super snarky so I avoid it now.
