not that i would want to replace this one, i have still yet to read some of the insightful threads and learn new things from their discussions.

are there other forums that have such a large user following as this one?

In the majority of science forums, you will find yourself up to the eyeballs in crackpots. Be warned.

But the website that cronxeh has posted here, is very similar to PF! I think that's a very good forum!

Yeah, I totally agree. Some are pure madness...

//Sorry for double posting. Can I have the two posts merged? :x

I found a science forum that seems un-crackpotted. They even have a link to PF

Is the scienceforums.net server down? I can't seem to access it. I went on those forums a lot but now it doesn't work.

yes, it's been down since yesterday. i'm not sure why.

it is a good forum, though. i have been there a few years. the crackpots are usually held at bay. we do like to play with them sometimes, though.

i guess http://www.internationaldiscussionforums.net [Broken] is similar. most of it's members came from SFN.

I had lurked around scienceforums about four years ago and it was nowhere near PF in quality. Disorganized and uncontrolled. It seems to have cleaned up a bit and reigned in the crackpots. It even seems to have rules now (see: "So you've got a new theory")

A formerly good community was here which has just been completely cleaned out. We've re-done the forum a few times, but this is the first time it's been totally wiped clean. (Had to re-register, no old thread, forums changed) But it's pretty god.

Found a few other good ones for specialist interests of mine, but nothing as broad and with as many well-respected contributors as here, and I only really care about the engineering section, don't pay much attention to the proper sciences!
