  1. Almost all the members on MySurvivalForum are *paid* posters from the service PostLoop. There are only a handful of them are not. Who wants to spend time talking to fakes paid per post? No thanks.

    WhenSHTF was great back in the day, but it has gone down hill in recent years. Still, there is some good content there.

    • I’ve only lurked at MySurvivalForum and found the content to be generally rubbish. If they are paid writers that might explain it. Some of their mods are pretty douchey too. One of them lives in a mountain man fantasy world. All and all, it wasn’t worth signing up for. Considering it is a fake community, I’m glad I didn’t bother.

      A couple regional sites that are helpful are FLSurvival and BayouShooters. The former isn’t as active as it used to be, but it is still pretty good. The latter is more of a gun forum, but they have good content on preparedness too.

      • Yah … “rubbish” sound about right for MySurvivalForum. I was on there a minute ago and they’ve only had like one post in the last 24-hours. Must of run out of dough to play their crap fake posters. LOL!

  2. My review:

    WhenSHTF is nearly dead. The new ownership ran it into the ground by letting the lunatics run wild. By the time they were banned, it was too late. Almost all the regular posters bailed, went to other communities, or, in at least two cases, started their own forums.

    My Survival Forum is populated by fake paid-to-post members. Any forum that is “alive” with people who are, literally, paid to make posts and threads should not be on any list—period. It is embarrassing, at best. It is unethical, at worst.

    Survival Boards is still quite alive, but is loaded with tinfoil-hat wearing conspiracy wackjobs. There is a lot of good resources there though, particularly the downloads section.

    Survival Monkey is pretty good. Nice layout and board software. The wackadoodle stuff is, rightly, confined to a section.

    No idea about Survival Forums dot org, so can’t comment on that one.
