Are there any on the forum that think that what you experience is no evidence of reality? Or is it evidence?

For example can you tell from your experience that reality is not one in whichno part experiences? Is that a simple truth that those on the forum agree upon, or are there those on the forum that dispute that?

Three undefined terms, ergo unanswerable.

Still an invitation to talk about literally nothing or all, and thus without meaning.

We will never find out, as such questions are not discussed on PF. I refuse to call it philosophy, but lack a similar word which is still pc.

Those questions are far too vague and under determined to allow a reasonable discussion. We usually require peer reviewed sources or textbooks outside the few threads which are meant to amuse. I doubt that you will find some which are not within philosophy.
