    Kinda of its has programming but website programming

    Webmaster General
    Get help on HTML, PHP, CSS, JavaScript and more. Discuss web design, forums, hosting, web promotion and other webmaster issues.

    There is other Programming other then Websites

    So I think it would be a good item


    Computer Tech help

    Same thing

    It wouldn't be in Webmaster Tech because programming languages are not all for webdesign.
    Comp tech is mostly for hardware but it would still fit right in there.

    Personally, I've been wanting to do this for quite some time. However, the issue that admins face when thinking about a new forum is the same as always - Will there be enough support for it? Basically, prove to the staff that there's enough interest, support, and need for a new forum, and you'll have yourself a new forum. :p

    Until then, you can make topics concerning programming in GD to prove that said interest exists.

    Wanna know a neat little trick?

    Get a lot of threads about the same topic. Eventually, we will build a forum FOR that topic. Supply. Demand. Demand the forum and we will supply ^.^

    Behold /\ The secret to the birth of forums like the Graphics Zone and Writer's Corner ^.^

    Spam? Did I say spam the forums?

    No, I said get threads about the same topic. Threads. Not spam. I don't consider spam to be respectable enough to be categorized with "posts" or "threads", even if it's true by definition. Spam is a disease.

    I am the cure :cool: :shades:

    Yeah, I went there, dawg.

    If he doesn't, not only will he hurt the chance to get this forum created, but he won't be around to ever see it come to fruition :)

    Well the first line of our General Tech Zone's title says
    "Need help with anything computer-related?"

    But this forum doesn't have so much activity that we need to split it (compare the number of topics per day with WE Help Zone for instance).
    I also recall a couple of programming related topics in General Tech here and there, but they received very little attention, save got a solution.
    That said I would also like to point out that programming isn't something hard to find on the internet whatsoever.
    In fact just about every (better known) language has at least a couple decent, (very) active, dedicated forum boards. A google search would defiantly do the trick here.

    So anyway...if you have something to ask, programming related or otherwise, you don't need a special forum to do so.

    Yep, a (sub)forum can be created easily, but...
    What would you put in there?
    Got a large amount of recent topics that can be moved?
