- Registered/subbed users number is easy to manipulate and unreliable
- If predecessor forums are used in years active, the predecessor forums must have retained all previous posts from predecessor forums and had the exact same server owner
- In order to list former names, the forum has to have maintained the exact same server owner and continued the forum in a similar way
- Predecessor forums include those that retained the same userbase as far as individual users
Current prominent forums are:
- Orientation: Whitepill/Purplepill
- Love-shy.net is a restart of love-shy.com around March 2020.
- Feminist forum, orientation: Bluepill/Purplepill
- Incels.co (previously incels.co, and before that incels.me) is currently the largest forum outside of Reddit that self-describes as incel. It was created by SergeantIncel on Nov. 7th, 2017, hours after the banning of /r/incels. All women are banned form entering.
- Incels.net was created around the same time as incels.co, and is currently engaged in a feud with .co over the fact that .net has a better domain extension. It welcomes all genders but tends to see inceldom as primarily a male issue.
Broader list by niche
There are many subsets of the incelosphere. Estimated active membership in parentheses. These subsets include:
- Non-English (collectively, thousands of active users): Some of these include the
- Female: In the incelosphere, there are several female-oriented communities, these include: /r/ForeverAloneWomen. Many other femcel subreddits seemed to begin mostly as an astroturfing project by male incels, although they may be populated with more actual women nowadays. (thousands)
- Feminist: ForeverAlone, ForeverAloneTeens (collectively, thousands)
- Hikikomori: r9k, although r9k also has a lot of astroturfing and noncel anti-incels, without a policy to ban those people, and never self-identified as incel (tens of thousands)
- Lefty: 9chan.tw/leftcel/, reddit.com/r/leftyincel, vk.com/in_cel
- LGBT: /r/gaycel, LGBTForeverAlone and /r/TransgenderIncels are forums used by truecels, incels and nearcels who are LGBT. (collectively, hundreds)
- Love-shy: Love-shy.net
- Low-tier normies: /r/failed Normies is for normies who go through inceldom (less than 100), nearcels.com
- Male users, blackpill: incels.co, saidit.net/s/Incels/, blackpill.club (collectively, tens of thousands, public)
- Middle-aged: FA30plus is a community dedicated to incelibates who are a bit older. (dozens)
- Non-ideological Self improvement: r/ForeverAloneDating, HappierAbroad, r/FAImprovement
- Political parties: Incelparty.win, ALF, and Kakuhido. None seem to have members, but the ALF has followers, and Kakuhido has volunteers.
- Posers: wizchan has been advertised by the press as an incel board, and while they’ve had an influence years ago, most of the users of that site now are culture warriors who generally dislike the incel label. Wizchan has a word filter that filters “incel” to “crabs”. Lookism.net is mainly a board dedicated to trolling incels, and so is not much of a genuine incel board. Same with Redpilltalk, previously known as sluthate.

- Q&A: askanincel is a forum that mostly follows the Q&A format (dozens, public)

- Sexual-racism / ethnicels: /r/JustBeWhite, /r/Melanincels, /r/hapas (thousands)
- Specific affliction: Some boards focus on a very specific affliction, such as /r/shortcels which focuses on short incels (less than 100)

- Alt-right, pseudo-incelospherian: Forum.looksmaxxing.com, incels.co, looksmax.me, lookstheory.org
