This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Are there any good OSR communities out there? Anywhere I can meet people interested in OSR/RPGs, AND/Or share my stuff (blog, products)?

Or should I check other social media?

I dislike FB, MeWe is good but has too few people (join if you like OSR stuff), Reddit has a decent OSR community. What else is there?

Man, I miss G+.

Pedantic Gaming is the one Server I know that has a decent size.

The Autarch discord server for Adventurer Conqueror King has a pretty great community.

This discord doesn't treat people differently based on their political beliefs:
 https://discord.gg/5UQtTC7a
It's really inactive now and looking for life.  It's a general boardgame Discord group, but RPG talk is just as welcome.
This link will be good until 9/27/22.  If it's expired and you want to join, send me a message.

Do you have the exact name of it?

I don't but you should be able to find it on the Autarch webpage or in their forums.  If not, I'll post it when I get home from work.

Thanks for all the answers! Just FYI, I am looking for something OSR-oriented. As I see, there are three "big groups" of RPG players:

- D&D 5e/6e
- Indie games
- OSR

Although many people fall into more than one camp (I published 5e and OSR stuff, for example), and before D&D I only played indie stuff), I feel that more and more I'm only interested in OSR stuff.

Right, so you're looking for an OSR only server, that's not tied to a company. Not sure if such a thing exists. Maybe someone should make one if it doesn't.

I found a few, not sure if they are any good: Tenkar's, OSR, NSR Cauldron. I don't even know how to link them properly, but feel free to say hi on discord or let me know if you want an invitation.

Tenkar's is pretty good, but as I recall it's gotten fairly expansive so can be a bit hard to jump around to relevant parts.  Of course I only visit infrequently, so it could be that if you're there often enough it's easy to keep track of the new stuff.
