ok, let the mind-reading begin...

How about...I don't know... this one?

(actually, that was a serious comment when I said "this one")

I have just visited linuxacademy.com and superuser. The first is what the name implies, a selection of courses. The second I could not get signed up (to register myself). It seems the have case sensitivity for the username, perhaps that was my mistake. But I had alread signed up and logged in and when I was about to post the asked me email adress and password again. There are many sites like this, unluckily.

Of course there should be thousands of linux forums but it is precisely this that make election so dificult.

The snag seems to reside elsewhere.

I've referenced superuser.com in my answers here before and used it myself, so I just signed up for an account. It would not let me copy and paste my password, I had to type it out. Then it said things successfully went through and I should check in inbox within 15 minutes or so for my confirmation message. It should be there by now.

With all due respect, if I were you I'd be happy where I am and ask questions here. The grass isn't always as green as it seems on the other side of the fence.

I know a mod there. You would most likely receive a scathing for asking this question if he spotted your OP there and I fear your follow-up would not be well received either.

this one, of course.

honestly, when you get down to it, it's hard to beat LQ.
there's one for each of the other languages i speak, then there's dedicated distro or hardware forums.
but general, distro-agnostic linux forum? only this one.

i mean yes, there's a few more, but either they're bogged down by ads, spam and trolls or they simply do not have enough members.

and as ever so often, "linux forum" as a search phrase should answer the question adequately.

I used to like linuxforums.org, until the site owners let it get choked up with malicious scripts. Then I came here and found out that a lot of my LF friends had preceded me. There's also a linuxforums.com, but I don't know how active it is.

This one is probably the best for general Linux (& BSD) questions, but it could be quicker to get a specific answer from your distros own forum.

I use three Linux related forums, LQ/antiX/RaspberryPi - & DaemonForums for BSD related stuff.

That may depend on the distro! The Ubuntu forum is full of unanswered questions too many Indians and not enough chiefs, so to speak while some are notoriously unfriendly.
