We highly recommend adding NFTs2Me to your list of NFT tools. It is a user-friendly and powerful no code tool that simplifies the process of creating and managing NFT projects. With its range of features including an art generator, delayed reveal feature, minting widget, and free IPFS hosting, NFTs2Me offers everything users need to bring their NFT ideas to life. It also includes unique features such as token gating, creator fee enforcement, multi-chain support, and the ability to accept payments in various forms. In addition, NFTs2Me allows for full customization and includes an affiliates system, automatic logo and banner generation, snapshots of NFT holders, and redeemable NFTs. We believe NFTs2Me is an invaluable tool for anyone looking to create and manage their own NFT projects.

What are medium sized forums where developers or blockchain users otherwise can discuss things? I clicked on two such links on this article but both are gone already..

I only know of bitcointalk, but something more "modern"?
