Add comms! Categorize! Use alphabetical order within sections/subsections. You can also watch [info]dw_community_promo for people promoting their communities!

This list is very difficult to maintain now that we've been in Open Beta for some time. Please feel free to edit this page mercilessly, adding new public communities (even if they aren't yours), and deleting inactive or deleted communities. It is possible that this page is now obsolete - if you think so, leave a note on Talk:Community List.
