Recommend a DIY home improvement forum?

Looking for one friendly to newbies and does not have a bazillion sub-forums! Also one where you can attach images directly to your post.

Maybe something at reddit? /r/diy looks pretty active.

Seems like sub forums would be helpful, like for plumbing, HVAC, electrical, etc. Anyway, you can always Google your issue as it is needed, and check out YouTube, which has been great when I needed help, like for replacing the house water regulator, replacing a shower faucet, etc.

I find the information and advice on gardenweb to be helpful. I also find the walk-throughs on youtube to be particularly prescriptively useful. For example, I used to scoff at "unboxing" videos, but after watching an unboxing of the inverter generator that I am looking at, I laugh no longer! Not sure if it meets all your criteria or if it fits your exact use case. What kind of DIY project are you looking at and what depth of advice?
