This may include Internet forums, imageboards, IRC chat rooms, VOIP servers, etc. Due to the young age of the modern, scientific interpretation of the tulpa phenomenon, and the lack of published scientific research in the subject, the tulpa community is currently a vital tool for acquiring statistics and information about the nature of tulpas.
There exist has several Internet forums dedicated to the discussion of tulpas, and related topics. The largest dedicated website at the time of writing, being the Tulpa.info forums, with over 6,000 registered members and 100,000 posts. The Reddit-based community /r/ Tulpas has a similar number of subscribers. The Tulpa Network forum is a smaller site, created as a more strictly scientific area for discussion of the subject.
Image boards are an important part of the modern tulpa community, as the 4chan /x/ board is where the modern community first began, prior to any dedicated forums appearing on the Internet. Threads about tulpas occasionally still appear on 4chan's /x/ and /mlp/ boards. The My Little Pony focused image board MLPchan.net has served as a hub for people who share common interests in tulpas and My Little Pony.
