    CProgramming.com should expand!

    Personally I think it would be a great idea for the CProgramming.com forums to expand to more languages. Cause we all know that most programmers use more than one language. THerefore I propose this. There should be another section added to the forums (under the current ones) with the title "Other Languages". Then list em off like our current C, C++, are done. I think we should have...

    Java
    Visual Basic
    ASP
    C#
    XML, HTML, Javascript, Web and CGI

    Others could be added but I think those 5 would make these forums a much more diverse place for programmers of all walks of life to come together. I really do hate going to other forums to ask my Java and Visual Basic questions

    So vote it up guys!

    It's not that I don't care about other langs, it's just that I come to a site called cprogramming.com for info on C... If I want other stuff, I go to other boards... Too many langs would make the board too big...

    that's too much boardage to cover..we'd need a few more mods...plus, it wastes space on our precious cprogramming server. I think one board to cover other aspects of programming would be nice, but no more than that.

    Well not all that stuff they have, just the 5 I suggested would be sweet. Hell, just having one like you said would be fine with me. i just hate going to other forums when I know everybody here. You know?

    Maybe one would be okay...but I kind of fear that it would be like the DOS board. Occasionally a question appears on the DOS board, but mostly people just post their DOS questions the Gen C++ Board. I have seen a little more usage of it within the past week or so, though...maybe people are getting smarter...

    I definitely dont think we should have like 5 more boards...that is a mistake. That website you posted (forums.vb-world.net) had way to many boards. That is too much space to cover. How would you get to know everybody? How would you answer all the questions in a good amount of time? That is too much board space to cover...

    I also agree with Govtcheez and Ken. This is cprogramming.com. Its focus is C. So maybe one board for other languages could do, but thats all. This site is focused on the C/C++ language...maybe someday C# could be included because it is also one of the C's...but it is not popular yet, so I wouldnt put up a C# board yet...

    Thats my opinion.

    Even if it's not used alot, it's still there for the people that would like to use it. And if it isn't used a whole lot it won't be taking up any space (bandwidth wise).

    Thumbs down

    It is simple enough for programmers to find other forums--including the various Usenet newsgroups--to post their questions relating to programming languages other than C and C++. Here, our main focus is C and C++; that is what unites us. People simply do not expect forums for other programming languages on a website called "CProgramming.com."

    If an "Other Languages" forum were created, a possible outcome would be questions asked primarily by nonregulars in an assortment of languages. Few of these questions would be answered, and fewer still would be answered quickly. Rather than creating an "Other Languages" forum or forums for several different programming languages, hyperlinks to forums for other programming languages should be added to this board's FAQ.

    I would like to state that C# is only as much "one of the C's" as Java and several other programming languages. Having a C as part of the name of a programming language does not inherently cause a programming language to be more "C-like" than any other programming language. Objective-C and its hybrid relative Objective-C++ are approximantly as close to C and C++ as C# and Java; actually, Objective-C, if I remember correctly, has some level of compatibility with C--just like C++. Remember, Microsoft is simply capitalizing on the popularity of C and C++ in its decision to call its new, Java-like programming language C# (it was code named COOL, C++ Object-Oriented Language).

    Get rid of the DOS board because it is useless and put up a C# board.
    I compile code with:
    Visual Studio.NET beta2

    There's a C# board a rick's site...never gets any post though. But get rid of the DOS board, and then we may as well delete the Linux board, and the Windows board, and the Game board, and we might want to combine the C board with C++, leaving only 2 boards to post at

    But then we may as well toss the C/C++ board, cause then it will die out with the mass popularity of the General Discussions board. Then we shall rename it...MicroBoard!

    And so begins the start of the domination through eliminating all competitors.

    No, I didn't say go retarded. I just said get rid of the DOS board, especially since DOS has been obsolete for about a decade and replace it with C#.
    I compile code with:
    Visual Studio.NET beta2
