I jumped into the 20-something and Weight Loss Support forums and have been participating in the Daily Chats. I also joined the threads where people log stuff every day (weight, what they've eaten, exercise, etc.). There's less talking, per se, but it still feels like a community.
I found that it was just a matter of posting frequently enough, and responding to other people's posts. It took a few days to really feel comfortable, but I do now. And I also do as beerab does, hopping around to threads the look interesting and posting when I have something to say, otherwise just learning from others.
