I was recently asked on a Yahoo!Groups newsgroup where people can learn more about large format printing, so I put together this list of groups to which I subscribe, and modified it slightly for this post.
These are all good newsgroups to consider joining, or websites with forums to consider reading and/or joining to learn about people’s experiences with printing and to hear opinions on many topics related to digital art and imaging. Some are very specific to a particular type of printer, brand or software.
After joining and prior to posting any messages, I recommend reading the list rules and checking the archives to make sure that your question has not already been answered. Also, you have the option of choosing “No e-mail” for your Yahoo!Groups messages, which means that you can go online to read messages, but none will be sent to your e-mail address. I prefer getting my messages sent via single messages to an e-mail account, but that means that I receive at least 100 every day from my 80+ groups.
There are Yahoo!Groups for many different interests, and the main page is here. Another advantage of Yahoo!Groups is that you can run a newsletter in which only you can post to the group. That’s how I currently send out my Inkjet & Imaging Tips Newsletter, which you can see a screen shot of below, and learn more about here.

I am one of the moderators of the DigitalFineArt Newsgroup, so I proudly listed that one first:
