The IF Community is made up of [[:Category:People|people]] from all around the globe. They discuss IF and many other things on Usenet, on MUDs, and in person. Note that while the term 'the IF community' is frequently and casually used, it is hard to identify a single community focus; furthermore, other IF communities exist that interact little with the r*if-ifMUD community, notably for [[Language|non-anglophone]] or [[AIF|adult-themed]] IF.

The IF Community is made up of people from all around the globe. They discuss IF and many other things on Usenet, on MUDs, and in person. Note that while the term 'the IF community' is frequently and casually used, it is hard to identify a single community focus; furthermore, other IF communities exist that interact little with the r*if-ifMUD community, notably for non-anglophone or adult-themed IF.
