Actionscript community site?

Mailing list, forum, or other community for advanced actionscript coders?

Most of what I do professionally is flash actionscript coding. Pretty advanced, AS3 stuff. Occasionally I have questions that aren't answered by the usual docs and books, and I'd love to have a place to ask other people like me.

Back in the day there was the flash coders mailing list, but that appears to be dead. Does anyone know of a community site of any sort that is dedicated to discussing actionscript coding with a good signal to noise ratio?

So far Flashkit's forums are the best I've found, but I just have this suspicion I'm missing some obvious place where all the cool kids are hanging out. Thanks in advance for any advice.

Flash Coders is still around: http://chattyfig.figleaf.com/mailman/listinfo/flashcoders

When Flash Coders went down a while ago some of the list members started up a Yahoo! group here: http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/Flash_tiger/

Both FlashCoders and Flash_Tiger are great recommendations. I would recommend subscribing to both, as there's not a lot of cross-posting.

(I'm the admin of the FlashCoders list, and I've done my best to ensure that it won't go down again. I bought a shiny new server for it.)

You might also find the Yahoo Flexcoders group useful. It's not focused purely on AS3, but since that's what you use with Flex, there's a decent amount of coverage.
