Are there any good software/technical online community forums left?

    I haven't done mainstream tech like a lot of people here for many years.
    I do dabble with web servers and self-hosting and actually find certain Facebook groups rather helpful these days.

    Don’t ignore Reddit, there are shed loads of subs on there and one might fit the bill.

    But Discord is the place to go if you’re looking for technical forums.

    Do you mean the answers of "you're doing it wrong", when "it" is a system inside a huge enterprise of which you have zero control over are not helpful?

    I have never found one. Reddit is crap and so is every other forum.

    Places like CUK Technical are genuinely a big help but are there any good, active forums out there related to development, design, all that stuff anyone would recommend?
