    If you are talking about the one I think you are, the other biggie Ferrari forum, then... kind of.

    I was referred to Ferrari Chat by the administrator. Not personally mind you, but he always posted positively about Rob and everyone here. He posts on here sometimes.

    A post in which Ferrari Chat was belittled? That is funny because I remember seeing numerous posts where members belittled that site on its forums and encourage everyone to go to "the real enthusiast site": Ferrari Chat.

    As to the "kind of". It is a little intimidating. I feel that I have nothing to really add to their forum as I am not yet an owner. Once I get a Ferrari, then I will post away.

    Tim, I have been meaning to PM you. I will include which site I am talking about in that. Expect it before Sunday.

    Are you talking about The Ferrari List?

    The Ferrari List is the only Ferrari community older than FerrariChat.com, except maybe the little used Yahoo boards.

    There are great people over there. I think most just use the email list though.

    There's also the Owners site, the FCA tech site, and Yang's site. Many various communities for many different uses and personalities.

    He's referencing a post on ferraridomain.com. Ferraridomain.com bills itself as the "Original Ferrari Discussion Forum" and was registered about a month before Ferrarichat.com. It doesn't appear to have a large membership, but they're loyal :)

    Thanks for the FYI Tillman. That's one I didn't know about and I thought I knew them all.

    I just thought of another one... U12buy.com I think.

    Hey, I was wondering if I should list on FC a complete list of Ferrari communities with a little info on each.

    I don't see how that could hurt anything. What does everyone think?

    Rob, I don't think that's a bad idea at all. I know I decided this would be my community after watching several different ones for the better part of a year. This site was far superior to the others IMO so that's why I chose this one. Doesn't hurt to give people a link the alternatives.

    I thought he was talking about FCA.

    I had never heard of this one either.

    Greetings from Rio,

    For what it's worth, I have posted there (off and on) for quite a while. I always found it to be a worthwhile forum. The only drawback is the length of time it takes for the other members to respond.

    Other than that, I like it and I still post there from time to time.
