YoYo Wiki

The Online Community is a virtual meeting place where people from around the world meet to exchange yo-yoing tricks, event details and information in many places on the internet. These fall into several categories: forums, blogs, video sites, IRC chat rooms and normal websites.


An online web forum is a very popular method of communicating with other yo-yoers. Most forums are run by stores, although there are some that are independent.
