Discord chat, pygame server

If you want to discus projects you're working on, there is a new chat server on 'Discord':, a chat service very popular in other game dev communities.

Mailing List

Pygame maintains an active mailing list. You can email the list at [email protected]

If you do not have a mail client configured on your computer you can subscribe to the mailing list by sending a plain-text e-mail to [email protected] Leave the subject field blank and in the body put only "subscribe pygame-users" (without the quotes).

You will receive an authentication response. Follow the directions in that e-mail to complete the subscription process.

Forums and Newsgroups

GMane, and google groups offer web based, and newsgroup access to the pygame mailing list. So you can talk with a forum-like interface to the pygame mailing list.

If you prefer newsgroups, GMane is running a newsgroup gateway at gmane.comp.python.pygame.

If you have a google account, and like google groups, there is a mailing list mirror at google groups mirror. To post, you must subscribe to the real mailing list first. It started mirroring the mailing list in 2008/04/28.

For a forum-like interface, you can use Nabble which started mirroring on 2012/05/21.
