This was requested by several of the community members and was a good idea, so here it is.

Use this board for general discussion of programming, show and evaluate your code and to get help in coding when you're stumped. We hope this boards helps in improving coding skills of veteran coders, helps people to pick up coding of previously foreign programming languages and lets people help each other. And this should help to keep general discussion of coding out of the SCP boards.

Have fun. :)

Sounds interesting, specially since I'm doing my last year of computing next year :) Might well come in handy for bouncing ideas around :D

Hopefully, Taylor will come in here, I've always found him exceptionally good at explaining concepts :)

I thought the request in Site Support was referring to a general computer-related forum, not specifically limited to programming?

Such a board is still under consideration. After all, there's a limit how much sense it makes to split general discussion.

That is true, but I think if you're going to make an additional board anyway, you might as well expand its scope a bit more. Programming alone is a little restrictive to warrant having an entire category to itself on here.

Category? This board is under existing off-topic category. If by category you meant a board, then only time can answer to that. If this board serves as the hub of the community's coders and will be active, then all is good and the board can stay as it is.

Keeping this board limited to programming seems restrictive to me also.  Maybe it could be more of a General Computing board?  I know people come to HLP and post computer-related questions, be it hardware or software.  It doesn't make a lot of sense for programming questions/discussions to go here, while hardware-related questions stay in Gen Disc.

In that case General Discussion should be named the "Spamming, Politics And Meaningless" subforum

Yes, that's what I meant. We can see what happens, but my impression is that threads on (non-SCP specific) programming are pretty rare around here and there are only two or three experienced coders who post regularly in them. There are a lot more on hardware or general software issues, on the other hand.

i find it annoying when i have to post some non-freespace related code project im working on, and have to stick it in the general board for all the spammers to **** all over. so i like this board. this board is a good idea.

It's amazing, people spam in a forum designed to reduce spam about how another forum contains spam...

I, too find the idea of a seperate programming board nice. I was surprised at first when I saw it but yay!

Code: [Select]
!/bin/awk
awk print{"Hello programming board"}

This sig is equal to -i.
