So the title pretty much says it all, what other infinite series summations do we have for Pi^2/6 besides,
$$\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} 1/n^2$$ ***EDIT*** I should also include, $$\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} 2(1)^(n+1)/n^2$$ $$\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} 4/(2n)^2$$ etc. etc. A unique form outside of the 1/n^2 family.

Do you have anything else besides Boreks standard answer on these things? :) On a more serious note (sort of), deriving these new series is a blast! I have not encountered any other subject in mathematics that has been more fun!
