According to the blockchain.info's chart, as of Feb 2013 the top mining pools apparently are:

  • BTC Guild
  • 50BTC
  • Deepbit
  • Slush
  • EclipseMC

I can't say for the "good community" since that's obviously quite subjective.

What about GHash.io? What do you mean "the top mining pools apparently are"? Thanks for the link anyways. –  Mzn Jan 31 '14 at 16:01
Hah!!! I just realized that having big mining pools like GHash.io is bad for BitCoin's survival! Don't join GHash :) Sorry I are noobs. –  Mzn Jan 31 '14 at 17:15
