After http://asmcommunity.net closed because of low activity, there is no so much assembly forums nowadays.

NASM forum has 9000 posts and 1028 members.

MASM forum has only 43000 posts by 336 members, regardless of the fact it gives shelter for several non-MASM projects as GoAsm, PowerBasic and RosAsm (Where is Betov? I miss him.)

KolibriOS forum although is not exactly assembly programming forum, but because KolibriOS is written in FASM, it is mainly assembly forum anyway. So, it has 55000 posts, by 1500 members.

There is WASM.ru, but it is not assembly programming forum anymore. Its assembly section has only 18000 posts.

FASM forum, on the other hand, has 166338 posts, by almost 6500 users. This way it seems to be the bigger active forum about assembly programming in the world!

Do someone knows about other, bigger assembly language forum online?

Very strange forum. I mean, it has 52617 registered users and only 18494 posts. It is active, but not bigger than our.

Well, seems that we are part of a legend, wow. I've never realized that. Wink

I wouldn't underestimate forums that are mainly for non-English speaking users though. I'm sure that we must have overlooked a Chinese forums that may have a huge community and we don't know about it just because it's a hermetic world to us.

That is why I posted this topic. I can collect information only about Bulgarian, Russian and English forums.
But, there are Chinese members of our forum. Maybe they can give some information. Of course if it is not a part of some BIG_CHINESE_SECRET. Wink

Interesting. Can you provide some link or at least details?

Ops, I may have underestimated the FASM board.

FASM's board is significantly active (though it is almost stagnated some days...). Strangely, I had the impression NASM, YASM and even MASM (o_O) were much more used than FASM. While that is true for most projects that make heavy use of assembly code (x264, x265, bzip2, vpx... and many others). But there are some who at least mentions FASM (see ufmod library).

Maybe most people use FASM in secret or in very obscure projects. Or perhaps it is more popular among hobbyists who have the freedom of choice. I am not sure, all speculations.

I think I will have to retract my statement as I do not know any community that is more active than FASM's (we have some local sites that is quite active, but the assembly area is practically dead if existent at all D:).

Now I will ask indiscreet question. Wink Where are you from?
I know you didn't set your location, but is it so big secret? Of course it is up to you to share this information. Smile

Unfortunately, I can not (explicitly) disclose such information because I am not allowed to represent (in any way) the country I live in.

And it is not a secret at all, otherwise I would be connecting through a VPN or something else or at least making an effort to hide my real IP address. D:

In other words, ask revolution (preferably in private) or other forum staff (I thought you were one of them) as they have access to my IP address.

I apologize for any inconveniences I may have caused.

There is no inconvenience at all. IMHO, everyone represents its own country, simply by being its citizen. But as I already said, it is a personal information and disclosing it is only up to you (regardless of your reasons).

Well, I thought Hutch imported the old database. Anyway, even so, the MASM forum is at best at the same level as our forum 128553+43000 as a number of posts, but we are still bigger with higher number of members (10 times higher!). On the other hand only 900 of them has more than 10 posts.

I would not answer such a question if someone were to ask.

Yes, I know. It was only expression of my regret.
I hope he is OK. Smile

Interesting statistics, John. I myself thought that the activity on fasm board had drastically decreased over years. Although my posts are rare enough, I visit the board from time to time in read-only mode. I had an impression that most part of all talks are generated by ancient users like you, revolution, MHajduk and the rest. But I might be wrong.

@zhak, you are right. The activity on FASM forum decreases and the same is observed on all other assembly programming forums. Explaining this IMO is essential in order to increase the popularity of assembly language.

There are many old posts over at:

http://www.asmcommunity.net/forums/

Definitely, not that active though. Luckily, not that much changes in x86. Smile

Betov is over at http://rosasm.freeforums.org/portal.php

Can Stackoverflow count as an assembly language forum? Whenever i go on to look at C posts i see loads of assembly related posts on the right-hand side list.
