The only one I've seen is The Chess Exchange (http://www.chessexchange.com), but there's nowhere near the activity that this one gets.

No doubt there's others out there, try Google.

actually I haven't checked many of theses out - perhaps thers could pass on after browsing

I believe there are one or two rambunctious ones in Canada ?

howabout the 'daily dirt' and attendant comments [more of a blog perhaps]
http://chessninja.com/
ninjachess message boards http://chessninja.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi
I myself dip into the daily dirt occasionally - not always usefully but fun

talkchess.com http://216.25.93.108/forum/ - looks extensive and active

chess exchange as you say http://www.chessexchange.com/forum/

gameknot forum
http://gameknot.com/fcgi/chess/

Avler forum http://www.avlerchess.com/forum.html

a sort of 'list' of forums

perhaps after a while a poll - but for now just listing the possibilities ?

okay - a blog - Susan Polgar's - http://susanpolgar.blogspot.com/

World Chess Network - yes there is a forum tied up in here (seems to have a few low-level pop-ups

chess here http://www.chesshere.com/forums.php

and would you believe it but there's on hanging off a hypography science site
http://forums.hypography.com/chess-forum.html - rather odd posts

and of course [or 'off course' or some of the things here on chesschat could be 'off' and/or 'coarse'] there is the big gun - FIDE at
http://forum.fide.com/

I've just received an e-mail from a Robert Graham who runs what looks like a well-established forum in the USA at <http://www.chesscircle.net> . It seems to have over 5000 members but I haven't looked at it closely. It would seem to be worth a look.

DJI got the same email last night. He wants reciprocal links with Rooty Hill.

The site is unusual. I'm not sure if it's in the northern USA or Canada. It certainly covers some Canadian topics.

It's certainly a forum but after some of the players' names, where there's provision for a home page to be listed, you'll find simply "www". If you click on those they turn into ads for anything from Viagra to whatever. They're a hodge podge.

It's also linked to a shop http://gamesbooks.net/related_links.jsp which offers chess books as part of quite an eclectic range--mostly games of one kind and another, including Bible quizzes.

He wants a reciprocal what?, with Linky Hill?

I guess this is classified as spam and I should desist. Sorry.
