Are there any other Computer Science communities you would recommend? So, please give me some recommendations.

    $\begingroup$ That's a bit like asking "Amazon, what are other good ereaders but the Kindle?". Anyways, it would be interesting to know which of your needs we can't cover, both in order to give a helpful answer and to improve Computer Science. $\endgroup$ – Raphael Apr 14 '13 at 11:34

    $\begingroup$ Amazon can answer that for you: amazon.com/s/… $\endgroup$ – user1095332 Apr 14 '13 at 11:36
  • $\begingroup$ Oh, they do that now? They did not use to. $\endgroup$ – Raphael Apr 14 '13 at 11:38
  • $\begingroup$ There was a time when I would suggest the /r/CompSci sub-reddit, but for the past year it has been flooded with garbage. /r/Algorithms isn't so bad, it's just not that active. $\endgroup$ – Nicholas Mancuso Apr 15 '13 at 17:13

    $\begingroup$ @NicholasMancuso From the feedback I got to posts on Computer Science on either subreddit, I would not trust anything on there. For TCS, that is. $\endgroup$ – Raphael Apr 17 '13 at 10:53

    $\begingroup$ the question is a bit vague but +1 to encourage [online] cs community. one that recently popped up: google+ cstheory community. also, a somewhat underutilized feature, one can start ones own "community" or join an existing one in stackexchange chat via existing/new chat rooms. $\endgroup$ – vzn May 6 '13 at 18:43
  • $\begingroup$ @Raphael it is valuable to have such a list, so that we can cross-post good questions on CS to those communities, and therefore drive traffic here => new members. $\endgroup$ – Realz Slaw Oct 8 '13 at 0:35
  • $\begingroup$ also google+ CS with 8K members $\endgroup$ – vzn Oct 8 '13 at 0:56
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, I noticed most of them are on the StackExchange network. That means everything except metaoptimize. You think there aren't any other good sites other than stackexchange? $\endgroup$ – user1095332 Apr 19 '13 at 13:10

    $\begingroup$ "I don't know any other good community" != "There is no other good community" $\endgroup$ – Raphael Apr 19 '13 at 14:12
  • $\begingroup$ Crypto.SE is not "Applied Cryptography and Security"; Crypto.SE is for Cryptography. For Security, see ITSecurity.SE (which you might want to add to the list). Unfortunately, I don't have permission to suggest an edit to this answer, or I would suggest an edit myself. $\endgroup$ – D.W. May 19 '13 at 4:35
