In my opinion, there is not another one.  I have learned way too much and developed some really good friendships to go looking for some other place to bee.  I prefer a monogamous relationship.  Might not have been the best question to ask here. Just saying. :-\

I have seen a couple of veiled references to other site(s) here searching old threads this winter, and again in this one. For those of us who are new is there some history here we should know so as to avoid stepping in "it"?

Do you go into a Chevy dealership and ask which Dodge or Ford they recommend?

Really, if you're just wanting to find more info on bees, punch in honeybees in Yahoo and go thru the pages.

Goodluck

We are open minded to other forums here. We surely have many members that are members of other forums,myself included.
 I spend almost all of  my time here because I enjoy the folks and it's geared a little more to the backyarder.
It also has features not found at some of the other forums.
There are a couple who's names are filtered out here because of attacks to the forum or our members,but they will not be mentioned.Nor need they be.
But feel free to talk about the others.But don't be bad mouthing them.
I see in a recent post on the forum about plans to build box joints referenced at Beesource. We have no problem with that.
We just hope to be the most appealing for our membership with voice and text chat features,links to photos and videos,and as always, a forum without ads running at the top of evry page to redirect you somewhere else.This has always been Johns(Founder) desire.

A legitimate reference, I can see. A link or request to visit just to promote another forum, I think is crude and disrespectful. Many on here know I admin another bee forum, but the only time I ever post it is in an informational link to a thread answering the poster's question.

Rules aren't needed if respect is shown.

what other forums besides this one do you view?

Forgive the narrow minded who only think in terms of bee forums.  ;) I guess that is all of us!  :-D

I understand your question in asking what other forums are out there, even those NOT bee forums.

For one, and really the only other one I post on, and it has nothing to do with the bee forum they have (which I don't care for)...is homesteadingtoday.com

The forum is huge and covers many topics and forums beyond what is listed here on beemaster. While beemaster may be the only "bee forum" I participate in, I find the volume and expertise of the folks on homesteadingtoday.com to be first rate and very helpful. I ask many chicken and farming questions on that site.

Hope this helps.  :)

good point Bjorn, it was a very open question!
If you are interested in growing fruit and berries,I find the folks on the fruit and orchard forum at gardenweb to be a good diverse bunch with a wealth of information both general and region specific. It is not ad free which is a drag. I have not really looked at any of the other forums on that site as few are my thing but they do have a lot of them.

There are other kinds of forums? I guess  I overlooked that point. I am also a member of a couple home brewing forums. homebrewtalk.com and northernbrewer forums.
And a gardening forum,although there is little traffic there,so I don't check on it often.

It's a bit amusing.  I read/post a number of places, but there are 3 primary ones (Beemaster is one).  Having spoken to some of the administrators for all of them, it is clear that all think that the others aren't worthy of mention....and they all seem to have done something at some point to become "unmentionable".  Of course they all have their strengths and weaknesses.

i have been on beesource, but it was pretty quiet the few times i was there.  one bee forum is about all i have time for anyway.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I am a member of both --- I started out there. I rarely go there anymore. This forum seems to be a little more laid back and geared more to the backyard keeper as already said. That other one has gotten real nasty @ times. Sometimes here we get a little huffed but John puts up with no bull  :rulez:

Well I am a member over at beesource and Idee's forum.  Don't visit Idee's as much as I would like can't get my password to work right.  Don't bother that much with beesource just don't get the same feel over there I get here.

I've been on most of them (was kicked off one because I argued with the 'wrong' member) and have had issues with all but this one.  BEEMASTER IS the 'QUEENBEE"  of bee forums as far as I'm concerned.  I rarely visit any other.

I visit beesource on occasion, Iddee's forum, a handful of reptile forums and a few others I find entertaining/useful. I actually started a topic just like this one a little while back.

Beesource does have an interesting 'sticky' for following the "swarm line" north in the season.

And, there are interesting discussions on 'top bar' hives that I am experimenting with for the first time this year.

If you want to learn about top bar hives go to the one beemaster has 'blocked' - Its a "Natural" beekeeping site out of Europe, I'd tell you where it is but as they've already admitted, its blocked from our viewing on this site.  Too bad.
