    Stackoverflow banned me. They are so f^5cking strict there. I didn't even get chance to learn the ropes of how things worked before the all powerful dweebs banished me for eternity.

    The reddit one seems more agreeable so far.

    Any others?

    That would take weeks to get a reply if at all. Yes the videos are great and I use them but hoping to get feedback from comments is one of the worst ways I can think of. You might as well send them letters in snail mail :) Maybe sometimes youd get a quick reply but certianly not reliable.

    Check out the groups on FB. They're pretty helpful. The IRC channel as well.

    If you're just starting to learn, I would suggest MIT's 6.00.1x as well on edX, or if you're a super n00b, University of Michigan has Programming for Everybody, all python, as well.

    The Reddit community in /r/LearnPython is good as well. There are a couple guys that run an 'auto-answer' bot for simple questions too. They're not GREAT but they do provide some helpful tips.

    Judt asking noob questions.

    You get downvoted for stupid stuff like the slightest spelling error.

    The Python Voat community is decent but growing:

    The IRC channel can be a bit rough. When asking questions you need to be clear, concise and had better made attempts to solve things on your own before posting.

    Honestly, I think you should try levelling up your Python skills before posting "noob" questions on Stackoverflow.

    The definitive book on Python "Learn Python the Hard Way" by the infamous Zed Shaw:
