But Promotion is limited to Hosts, not available to a regular user who likes a forum he/she would to promote.

absolutely! if you go to a forum you like you can promote it or if you own a forum you can also or if you are in a conversation you enjoy you can post a link to it as well with a short description about it! You are more than welcome - who told you only hosts could post?

Looking for a new forum? Maybe you are stuck inside more than usual and want to explore...

The Index is a great place to start https://www.delphiforums.com/index.ptt

On the left is the "Top Forums" list and while the order of it is a top secret it is listing active forums, so a nice place to scroll through.

On the right are categories and each will also list the more active forums first. Yes - that's not always the case but in general it's a good place to find others with similar interests.

Another neat place to find interesting forums on that page is the lower right frame where promotions appear. Clicking on various categories refreshes the promos. 

Happy Hunting!

Thanks. Regarding the only Host deal, I read it some years ago.

Feeling Chatty?

The Active Chat List shows you were people are gathering at that moment.

Tips:

Check the Start page and the forum first for rules if you've never been to that chatroom. Some forums, particularly support ones will require an introduction prior to getting voice in the room.

No one in the room or you only see a bot there? Post in the forum (or PM the host) to find out what time they usually have chats. Delphi is very international and time zones have a way of tripping things up, so make sure you mention which one you are in when asking for times.

Bottom line is - although we are all very much physically restricted in our off line worlds, Delphi is an excellent place to connect with others and in many different forms!

You read that here, not News and Views.. There was a discussion for promoting forums and this forum at the time limited it to Hosts. Years ago when I posted promos for Delphi on the home page, I also limited inputs to hosts after it became too messy dealing with more than one person per forum. There were literally hundreds of hosts who wanted their forums listed.

Hey guys, could you move the conversation to your forum and leave this discussion open for promoting all forums.

Thanks!
