    no forums on cprogramming.com

    The word 'forum' does not appear on the page www.cprogramming.com. How does anyone find this forum? Is it a secret? An evil conspiracy? Maybe someone should fix that...

    No, but "Message Board" is synonymous to "Forum" here. Which is where you are right now.

    Welcome to the most secret club in the world!

    As long as they are legitament programmers and are hear to learn and have fun in the process I dont see the harm. In that repect, people who come on here asking people to write their college / uni assignments really bug me. But, then again, we have all done that once. Or in some peoples cases, perhaps never. We are not all angels in that respect

    i thought that too, this message board, forum is quite hard to find. i think its like that on purpose. such as only a person really wanting help with C would have the interest to keep searching till he/she found the message board.

    Thus making the person(s) people who first devised the idea of message boards to help people out a model genius(s)

    I don't think its hard to find given we have thousands of people who can't even listen in uni class on here asking for help with their homework.

    If those idiots can find this, anyone can.

    We're number 2, wiki is number 1

    I mean, wiki even lists this site as a place to go for support.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    I find these boards are quite easy to find. When I first came several years ago, it was by doing a simple "c++ programming" search on google.

    I found it on the main page... I started with the beginner tutorials, check out AIHorizon for a second, my head exploded, then I came to this forum to discover the great mysteries of infinite loops.

    EDIT: Oh, I also checked out AIHorizon again pretty recently... my head still exploded.
