alt.anagrams This is the oldest
anagram discussion forum on the internet. As an old "news" (USENET) group it predates even the web (the
link is via google but this link
or other sources may work too.) Anyone is welcome, nobody is in charge and the discussion is anything and everything
about anagrams! The group even has semi-regular pub meetings in London with regulars
attending from the four corners of the globe. The alt.anagrams FAQ currently maintained
by Anna Shefl is a good introduction to the group and contains lots of great information about anagrams as well.
The Anagrammy Awards. This site has some of the most extreme anagram
fanatics out there and is probably the second best anagram site on the web (after this one!).
They have plenty of anagram resources and a discussion forum where people post their anagrams and get nominated
for a monthly competition in several categories (no prizes but plenty of glory). The competition
was originally run on alt.anagrams but after
some disagreements a number of years back a group of people decided to take it away to a private site where they could
set their own rules and ban the rule-breakers (something that is very hard to do on a public forum).
Since moving the organisers have put a great deal of effort both into building the site and making
the competition work well. The forum isn't for everyone (it is a little cliquey)
but if you love making anagrams and follow the rules you'll be welcomed. For some, it's a great alternative to
the free discussion on alt.anagrams and the monthly
competitions in numerous categories can become very addictive.
If you contribute, don't forget to post your discoveries to the archive
as well. The site also hosts some anagram software (called Anagram Artist) suitable for keeping track of the letters
and suggesting words when making a very long anagram (e.g. anagramming poetry). When the letter count gets below a threshold
it can also function as a (crude) anagram generator. Try it now!
