Good | So-so to terrible

Good has an excellent "forum" area. Mercifully, the forum is moderated, and posted rules prohibit Greek/Macedonian debate, name-calling and homework requests. Top 5%

Livejournal: Megalexandros, together with, this is the beating-heart of the Alexander the Great community. It is off-growth of Reames-Zimmerman's Hephaistion - Philalexandros. Top 5%

So-so to terrible

Yahoo: Alexander of Macedon Forum. So-so group, but picking up speed quickly. Unlike Pothos or Megalexandros, you can get a digest in the mail every day.

IMDb: Message board for Oliver Stone's Alexander. Much about the actors, but also about Alexander. Will probably pick up as the movie gets closer and then appears.

soc.history.ancient (via Google Groups) covers much more than Alexander, but he has been a frequent topic. You can also search for "Alexander the Great" in soc.history.ancient. Ethnic pronouncements and insults abound.

egroups: Alexander the Great. Small (30-member) group. No action.

Topica: Alexander the Great. Unmoderated. Not much action.

LibraryThing: Catalog your books online.
