Who is python-forum.io / Contact Information / Donations

python-forum.io is not connected to the Python Software Foundation. We are the not the ones to contact regarding changing the python language or python.org site. Go here if you need to contact them.

We are listed on python.org's community section because we requested that of them, and they approved. Before that they didn't even have a forum section under community. Some of us are not fond of communicating only through IRC, mailing lists, Stack Overflow, or reddit. We much prefer the forum structure. There are not that many python forums. A lot of them are multiple programming languages with a category for python. This is a free to use dedicated python forum for everyone.

We are a community of Python enthusiasts. We devote our free time to helping people learn Python. We are a group of people who have been at python-forum.org for many years (since 2003). From 2012-2013 there were 2 transitions of admins, with both not responding to user requests. No one had root access to the server and unable to modify anything. At times the forum was completely down due to MySQL errors, with no way to reach the sole admin. The old admin was unwilling to change simple modifications and unwilling to allow server access for us to change such things, etc. The previous problem will not arise here as all admins have server, domain, forum, and host access. We each devote a portion of our own money and time to upkeep this forum.

If you need to contact the system admins here at python-forum.io, please leave a post at the Private Inquiry section within the Board forum. If you are unable to login to the forum, please use our IRC Freenode #python-forum.

At this current time, a couple admins are footing the bill themselves for the this forum to be up and running. While all others are spending their personal time to maintaining it or answering questions. So we do not advertise donations for this reason as to not appear needy or spammy. But if you would like to donate, we do have a page set aside for that reason.
