PlanetQuake used to be a thing way back when, but it and the other Gamespy sites shut down quite a few years ago. Use archive.org to see what the sites were like in their prime.

I agree. The funny thing is if you search planetquake up. it redirects you to IGN XD

Quaddicted offers all of the things you seek.  The forum isn't too active but the few folks that do post there do reply.  As a forum, Func-Msgboard is pretty active and one can always share links and files using Quaktastic.

 

I must admit that I miss the good old days of Quakeone.  It had a nice layout and presentation and an active forum up until a few years ago. :(

 

For me, the only things really missing in terms of Quake is a robust repository of classic machinima and a slightly bigger user base. 

 

At the risk of digressing a little too much, I suppose Quake could really do with an all-in-one port that would be embraced by the multiplayer base as well as single player.  Sadly, there does seem to be a bit of a schism that gives the feeling of the Quake community being smaller than it is.

As many said, there's already Quaddicted for that but if you want something more similar to DoomWorld it would a better decision to create a separated section in the forums over here rather than an entire site, mostly because of costs and such

Closest you'll find community-wise is r/quake. But, in the nature of Reddit, it's pretty fucking lame.

 

This is by far one of the most heavily upvoted images of all time there. Lame indeed.
