Maybe you know some other sites/forums where physical problems are discussed professionally (not just questions/answers within textbooks scope)? I would be grateful for such references.

What is wrong with PO? Even if there are textbook questions around this does not mean that it is not useful, right? We have people ranging from string theorists to experimentalists around. A textbook question might be non-trivial at all to someone else. Furthermore, "textbooks" vary from introduction to general relativity to "introduction to monstous moonshine" so I do not think it is a well targeted comment. I actually think PO is by far the most "professional" physics website you will find and excluding young scientist who lack experience and training is bad both for them and physics. I just thought your question has a derrogatory attitude but I might be wrong and you are interested in having additional options. If this is the case my answer is point-less other than that that there does not exist something better and complete than PO (to my humble opinion) :)

@conformal_gk: Thank you for your answer. No, I did not mean to offend PO, I am asking for other professional sites. The words in the brackets just precise the type of those sites and are not related in any way to PO. I know many forums with questions/answers to help students of different levels, but I am not interested in such. As simple as that. I am indeed interested in additional options to discuss problems of my interest (which are not welcome here, unfortunately).

I do not think your problems of interest are not wellcome. I actually have seen too much of discussion on your problems of interest.

Well, I have been told so - explicitly and many times. Isn't it enough?
