    Other languages

    Well, I would like to suggest you all, to make more categories and tutorials in more languages... For example, Objective-C, android etc, since more and more people tend to use them.

    That's all!

    Been discussed before. Won't happen until:

    A && B

    A = A large number of people request the forum
    B = A large number of questions regarding that language start to appear on the tech board.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    I really wouldn't see that happening as there are already hundreds of forums out there for the respective languages. For example when I needed to ask a few questions about JavaScript methods I found a website for web development forums and asked there. As asking questions about languages that aren't offered on this website would seem counter productive, but maybe that's just me.

    Though considering objective C still contains all the functionality of c++ I could see it being a useful language to support. Now considering how active any of the other languages (c# and win32) forums are (posts once a week) I am not sure it would be with the efforts of the developers here.

    Yea but when you look at how active the other forums are. It seems the cost would outweigh the gain.

    Oh, but come on. You know there's a TechTalk, right? If your language isn't a board, then just go to TechTalk, and everything is fine.
    Why do you need a forum for every language?
