Yap is getting very popular between hackers,DIY, super technical people and people who are tired of the corporate internet #usenet for most part now is attracking people who likes the internet how it was before the external world came in. I usually get bored on http forums but on usenet I get that hacker spirit of sharing and hardcore knowladge and willing to learn I only get on hacker events. https://man.sr.ht/~rek2/Hispagatos-wiki/usenet.md @noticias
There are other private servers to join though. See for example tildeverse's at news.tilde.club. I've recently begun to self-host my private NNTP server at retrobsd.ddns.net (port 119). Everyone is welcome to join the discussion.
well I found so far around 16 active groups I participate, mostly all related to privacy/hacking some like gemini(new one) and the C one is the most active C forum in the whole internet, even more than reddit(not that I use reddit anymore). Anyways can I list your public servers on my small usetnet tips wiki page? let me know what info I can post and a URL. happy hacking
