Wickedfire, 5 Star, Affiliates4U, etc. There are many out there. Obviously ABW is the best - most users, better content. Do you use multiple forums, or even need to? Is ABW all one needs?

I always have an open mind and, yes, have checked out some other aff mktg forums. Even registered and made a few posts. But you said it best when you said, "Obviously ABW is the best - most users, better content."
Plus ABW has a feeling of "family" among many members that I have not sensed elsewhere. I don't know about other folks, but ABW is the only forum "I" need.

I don't usually participate in more than 1. It takes too much time.

I have checked out other forums, none of them even come close to Abestweb.
As Bill noted above, Abestweb does feel like family with a lot of the members on here, you just don't get that in other forums.
Abestweb is the only affiliate marketing forum that interests me

If you have enough posts here, you get invited into the "Inner Circle" where all the good stuff happens...

Actually, I've peeked around several of the other forums, but really never spend time on any but this one and the member's forum for a WP plugin I purchased and go there to get tips on using.
Tried Wicked Fire a couple of times -- always came away feeling 1) like my brain had regressed back to the age of 12 or 13, and, 2) just all around sleezy. (No offense intended to any of you who like the place.)
Generally, anything of value I've learned about affiliate marketing has come at ABW -- and I spend way to much time hanging around here (like right now!) when I should be writing content, building some pages, blogging, etc.
So -- goodbye for awhile!Generate more fake news.

Funny, this morning I Googled affiliate programs looking for a specific category in answer to Kristin's contest question in the MadHatter forum. One of the Google results that came up was a similar question asked by a member on one of the "other" affiliate forums so I thought I should be able to get a quick answer here. WRONG!! They SPAMMED the hell out of the OP. The bad thing was that most of the SPAM wasn't even related to his question. Now in all fairness, I believe somewhere around the 10th or 11th post someone actually tried to give a legitimate answer, and then again around post #70 or 71.
I'm sure that many of the other forums have a lot to offer, I just don't have the time to wade through the crap to find the gems. Visiting other forums makes me very thankful for the rules here and very grateful to the mods for getting rid of the crap so quickly.

The key to a rewarding learning experience on any business forum is to keep your eyes WIDE open so you can discern between which members are backpatters/fanboys/mouthpieces for their buddies, and which members shoot straight from the hip without pulling any punches or glossing things over.
