    Can we please have a Rails sub-forum?

    I have been waiting and waiting on a forum specifically for rails. Even though ruby is a dominant part of rails, most people learn rails without learning ruby first. And besides most people post about rails or things having to do with rails anyway.

    -Arik, Cheers.
    Keep it Symple!

    Thumbs up I agree

    The Rails-related questions here at times almost drown out the general Ruby discussion. It would be an appropriate time to fork off a Rails sub-forum.

    Rails is the predominant topic but its not the *only* topic and creating a separate Rails forum would leave the main Ruby forum dead. I don't want to see this happen - discussing Ruby is as important as discussing Rails. Lets just leave things as it is.

    I agree with Luke, here.
    As much as I see the need to separate the two.. we just don't have enough people here to keep both alive. I would definitely support this if our numbers grow, however.
    If you give someone a program,
    you will frustrate them for a day;
    if you teach them how to program,
    you will frustrate them for a lifetime.

    ^^ Agreed. I'm trying to pick out ruby language specific posts, but have to wade through the depths of the rails postings to try and find them!

    as a convention, it's a good to preface rails related posts with the text [rails], as someone did recently...

    I totally agree with Luke no need for the split!
    Moreover this should be on the suggestions forum

    A rails specific forum wouldn't leave much in the ruby forum.
