I need an economics forum very similar to the way PhysicsForums is for Maths and Physics. S done

I tried reddit and stackexchange but they were not very suitable. Stackexchange in economics was not very active and reddit was mostly about discussing the everyday issues involving economics. What I'm looking for is something which can serve for self-education purpose, like anyone who has done a basic course, say in Kinematics, can strengthen his knowledge simply by participating in threads posted here on PF on Kinematics and can even look for older threads and have some insights which no textbook seem to cover. That's what I'm looking for economics.

They encourage members/users to ask questions and contribute comments and foster a community where participants can learn from and advise each other in a safe environment.

Increasingly, scientific, technical and otherwise professional societies have their own discussion and social interaction boards.
