OK, I'm not winning this battle. But anyway...
We don't have a forum for code. This would not be a forum "This code is broken. How do I fix it?". It would be a forum where people posted working code snippets and small projects. Posting these to the other forums would clog them up.
Why do we need a "code forum" when we already have forums for C, C++, C#, Windows programming, Linux programming,...?
This is just one more forum. The networking forum was created recently. If no one uses it, what is the loss?
I think that to warrant a change as large as you are suggesting would require a serious need. I hardly see such a pressing need. Our boards work just fine the way they are now.
The forums I visit, working code is very rarely posted. I think if we started posting code snippets, with no questions attached in these forums, they would be clogged up and annoy people. Also searching these forums will get broken code and questions. Searching the code forum would give working code.
People can put code there and ask for comments or questions about problems in the code.
Exactly my thoughts. :-)
I think its a good idea mainly because this forum will have finished projects/libraries/tools that would have use to new programmers to learn from or even for the experienced to gain ideas off. For example, if I made a really handy class, I could post it there and others can use it. But this forum would only have finished and working things in it. That forum would also be a
bigger seperation between finished projects and questions/etc.
On that note, we should delete all the forums... :-(
It would just be one more forum for noobs to post the wrong stuff in...
What's to lose. Set it up, if it doesn't work for some reason, close it in a couple of months. I think most of the more advanced programmers here have good code that they could post.
