Apologies for not giving you a proper answer before and taking several months to post this. Below is a hierarchical list for the anglophone forums, showing the lines of descent. Typically a group of people would get really ticked off and leave (or get banned) and form a new forum. The list does not have exact dates, but daughter forums will be less old than their parents. If anyone wants exact dates, you can add them. Please feel free to correct this list if you find any mistakes. This should provide a reasonably good idea of how the traditional shaving forum scene evolved from 2000 onward. Charles Roberts' MSN Group (late 1990s, see below) Straight Razor Place Yahoo group (Lynn Abrams, this group later moved to SRP forum) Straight Razor Place (Forum back online as of July 2019) Sharp Razor Palace (Hijacked SRP forum from Jan 2018, no longer affiliated with Lynn Abrams or Straight Razor Place) Straight Razor Place Facebook group (Lynn Abrams) MSN Wetshavers Group (defunct, many members moved to Shave My Face in 2004-2005) Shave My Face Badger & Blade Razor & Brush (defunct) The Shave Den Damn Fine Shave (original incarnation, defunct) Pogonotomy (defunct) The Shaving Cadre MSN The Wet Shavers Group (defunct, formed from remnants of Wet Shavers Group) The Shave Nook (owned by Bullgoose Shaving) Damn Fine Shave (second incarnation) The Original Safety (In archive mode, moved to The Original Safety Too) The Original Safety 2 The Shaving Room Against The Grain Reddit /r/wicked_edge Reddit /r/Wet_Shavers (closed) Reddit /r/Wetshaving Paste & Cut Since web-based forums gained popularity, Facebook, Pinterest, Snapchat, various blogs, and especially YouTube have also become popular venues for learning and interaction. New wetshaving forums likely will not appear to nearly the extent they did over the past twenty years. That's OK, as we have at least fourteen now and something for everybody. Edit: The creator of Method Shaving, Charles Roberts, briefly had a MSN shaving group before MSN Wet Shavers came online. From the Sharpologist article at https://sharpologist.com/2016/01/charles-roberts.html: "Charles started a wet shaving forum on the old MSN system (long since defunct) in the late 90’s (at about the same time, Lynn Abrams started a Yahoo Group that eventually became Straight Razor Place. But I digress, that’s another story). The MSN group closed but it spawned two other MSN groups, which eventually begat the Shave My Face forum."
