Dear friend, with respect - most of them are either sectarian (like DW, ZFI), or they are cliquey and thus not very newcomer-friendly.

So there is no real alternative to the big grey forum.

That said, BuddhaForum.org supports our brothers and sisters in the Dhamma here and at BWB.

The only requirement is Right Speech. You're very welcome to join and to help out with your Dhamma skills.

Greetings Thecap,

Further to your response to BubbaBuddhist's question...

I'm wondering, from your perspective what differentiates the scope or intention of your new forum, from an established forum like New Buddhist which Fede referred to above? They seem very similar in intent to me, and in many respects the New Buddhist site actually seems less sectarian in that it doesn't have separate forums for the various sects. Interesting to note that New Buddhist seems to be running quite successfully, so there is indeed an audience for that kind of offering... a good sign for your site.

Metta,
Retro. :)

Are you sure this isn't to increase the traffic to your site? :)
