I've been a "forum person" since the late 90's with my music stuff. Harmony Central was one of the biggest online forum communities before Reddit was a thing. They revamped their platform several years ago and lost most of their membership. I think my account was from 98 or so. I hosted several Austin area meetups and have met a LOT of the main forumites. A core group of us still converge in a central location about once a year to hang out, play guitar, and catch up. Known a lot of those people for 15 years now.
Anyway, the different sub forums each did their own thing. The group I spent the most time with started a new forum and it's mostly the core members. Soon after we created a facebook group where we spend most of our time now. Anytime any of us travel it's almost guaranteed we meet up with one of the guys, and just last weekend my buddy from austin and his wife and son stayed with us while some other forum friends were in town.
In the early 2000's I was part of a Jeep forum but it was more segmented. I knew a handful of the members offline, but not quite the same.
I joined DA after I bought my first Accord as it seemed natural to join a corresponding forum with the new purchase. Read and learned about Honda quirks and what to watch for, and didn't spend a lot of time here until the last year or so.
