There is the Town of Odyssey http://thetoo.com/ and the Campbell County http://campbellcountymb.com/ though I find that both of these message boards don't talk about Odyssey much. It's Odyssey themed, but most of it is general conversation.

I checked both and didn't like the format.. I like the Ice Cream Cone thing on this one..
I like the fact that the TOO has a Chat thing... I don't think I'm gonna make a account on there though.

I like the TOO... I tried to sign up for Cambell County Message Boards, but it said they weren't accepting new members. The Soda Shop probably has the best format, but the TOO has been around longer (7 years) so it's quite a bit bigger. Overall, I probably use the TOO more than The Soda Shop. But the more popular The Soda Shop Message Board gets, the more I enjoy it. They've already got over 200 users! But, then again, the TOO has 1200-something users.

I don't think I could keep up with it. I bet this will be just as big someday down the road..…

What is your favorite AIO message board? Personally I like them all for different reasons. The ToO was my starting grounds for message boards. It is what got me interested in doing this and gave me the opportunity to interact with fans of a show I have listened to pretty much my whole life. CC is what I call my home. It's one of my contributions to the fan community and I will always love CC. The thing about SS is that in a day and age when AIO reviews and such are few and far between on both CC and The ToO, SS still has a lot of AIO discussions. All that said I can't pick a sole favorite.

My favorite is still the Soda Shop, even though I've recently become more active on the ToO, the Soda Shop is what got me started, what allowed me to meet all my great online friends, and learn about how to administrate. :)

Technically, the best place to do this would be in an inter-forum meeting, as most here would choose the SS. I am one of the loyalists, though I hold down stakes in all three AIO forums. (I told one of my friends yesterday that the Odyssey forums were the extent of my social media. :D) I first found out about Odyssey fan sites through the Scoop, in the days when people would debate Odyssey in the comments section. When Jacob opened up the forum, I joined. My best forum times have been here.

I like them all, but I most comfortable on the SS. It's quiet, clean, and simple, (design-wise and otherwise) and looks and functions the best. The people are mostly more sensible and intelligent, with simple clean posts. That said I have a special spot for my forum, although I haven't finished it yet.

I like them all. This is the first forum I joined, so I have a special place for it, but ToO is the most interesting to me at the moment.

You mean there are other AIO message boards? There's a message board with a little AIO tak, but mostly it talks about Dr. Who and whine about Bieber. And there's this other place which likewise has just one AIO forum, but it's closed at the moment.

There's just one AIO board. The SS, which, new though it is, already has thousands of posts and dedicated members. And just happens to actually be Adventures in Odyssey centered. We come here because we like AIO. We love the characters, the actors, and the truths it reinforces. That's what an AIO board is for. That's why I love this place.

Which message boards are you talking about when you denounce them in a snobby, elitist manner?

There's only one doctor who thread on there and it hasn't been posted in for a while. No Bieber-whining as far as I've heard. I won't disagree on the little AIO talk part.

WE Connelsville is open and has been for at least the last month.

I take it you haven't seen the Random HQ? ;) Dr. Who isn't necessarily about the number of threads, it just tends to permeate everything.

Also: http://www.thetoo.com/viewtopic.php?nom ... =9&t=28493

http://www.thetoo.com/viewtopic.php?nom ... it=Dweeber

PF's statement might be slightly exaggerated :P , but it is definitely not unsupported.

You know, I came into this thread all prepared to defend the ToO—I've been a member of that board for almost five years now, and I feel a kind of attachment to it. But looking at PF's remarks made me think about it, and he has a good point—I think it's been phrased in a rather abrasive manner, but it is worth noting that most of the board at this point seems devoted to pop culture, random threads, and debates that turn into wars of sarcastic attrition. The ToO used to be a fun place to go to discuss AIO, but now it's like a ghost town—with the exception, of course, of whatever debate happens to be active at the moment. It's sad to me, because—not to put too fine a point on it—I go on fandom forums to get away from real life, not to confront more of it. That's why I joined here—there's real discussion and speculation going on about Odyssey, not just arguing about denominations or politics.

WHAT UP PF. I'm definitely glad I joined, too. I'm looking forward to some great debates, haha. :D
