The famous skinner Ross Harvey AKA b0se (creator of Vectorcell, and Opulence among many others), has recently opened a forum called Web9Design. This new forum is aimed towards professional/semi-professional web developers and graphic designers (with a focus on implementing web standards).

A very nice and clean forum!
