work in progress...
One of the best exemple is the very active CPCWiki forum.
Forums will be sorted by main country, yet many would have dedicated sub-forums with different languages, google translation can help as well and quite always someone there may answer in English anyway.
You may also include older discontinued forums/links for historical and educationnal purpose and even add some contextual explanations. Also be kind to indicate links to main site (checkhow it is done already) or spin-offs such as facebook pages.
what's the use ?
One of the best way for hobbyists to get together and share they passion are Forums.
Forums are often attached to a main website and while they are supposed to be a by-product of the main website, they often become the main go-to for the Website.
There may also be some new tendencies for chats attached to forums/websites, and major's social networks such as Facebook or Tweeter are often home to dedicated pages, serving as de-facto forums.
Forums are often places for debate and actually quite a lot of scenes and dramas, resulting in peoples getting banned or leaving to go to other forums or even create/open their own Forum.
Forums are also more than often the starting points for most of modern homebrew projects on Amstrad CPC, be it to link coders and artists, have help by others or launch an idea.
