Actually, of the "on-line communities" I visit regulary, perlmonks is my least favourite. These are the communities I visit regulary, in backwards order of when I joined:
  • Perlmonks. Since 2Q 2002 as 'Abigail-II', before that as Abigail, with about a year of not being here.
  • alt.sysadmin.recovery. I joined this Usenet group in 1997 or 1998. I recently ended my year long vacation from Usenet.
  • IRC, #perl. Since early 1997. Certainly the busiest community I visit. Of all the people I know both in RL and from an on-line community, I know most of them from IRC.
  • p5p, the perl5-porters mailing list. Since about the same time as IRC. I'm a member of about a dozen mailinglists (the exact number varies over time), but this is the only one that gives me some sense of a community.
  • comp.lang.perl.misc, previously comp.lang.perl. Since Januari 1995, the same day I started to use Perl. This community has given me the best exposure over the years.
  • VikingMUD, since 1993, and before that, IgorMUD, since 1991. My most precious community. By far the least amount of traffic, but I've spend 1354 days there. That 1354 * 24 hours being online there. It has given me jobs and some very deep (and long) friendships.
  • nl.eeuwig.september, split-off from nl.misc, which was called nlnet.misc before, and nlnet.general even before that. Been part of that community since 1988 - some members go back even further.
