    I love this forum for its relevance and members' participation.
    I have other issues I would like to talk to locals about.
    I was hoping someone here could point me to other places online where Chicagoans gather.

    If this is an inappropriate query, I apologize.

    All I know of is the nostalgia site,

    http://forgottenchicago.com/forum/

    Not a lot of traffic there.

    There's local Reddit groups:

    You can also ask this on r/chicago and r/greatnwside too and you'll get a myriad of answers:

    Kitsy a moderator from r/chicago created these multi-reddits with a ton of specific subreddits depending on your interests.

    Our neighborhood has a facebook group, which yours probably does too, and there are various chats with twitter hashtags (for instance there's a weekly #runchi for runners)

    You'll find quite a bit of Chicago talk here.
    It's not specifically a Chicago board but it's based here and the majority of the members are from here so there's a lot of Chicago talk.

    Depending on where you are in the city, there might be a neighborhood blog (possibly with a Facebook presence.) Uptown Update, Edgeville Buzz are two that I follow for our area. My husband also tracks our neighborhood on Everyblock, but I'm not a fan.

    Seconding the Everyblock recommendation. It's a fantastic hyperlocal site.
