    New subforums

    Hurray! Looks like our/my requests for an "Advanced ASP" forum have been heeded, and a couple more subforums have been chucked in for free - the "Debug and troubleshoot" forum is a particularly good idea, I think! :-)

    Many thanks to those that sorted this out!

    Now we've got the extra forums, can we all make sure that we use them properly please?

    Also remember, just because you may be "advanced" yourself doesn't mean that everyone else is! Help the newbies out whenever you can in the "Debug and Troubleshoot" forum. Remember, you were one too once!

    Also, congratulations M@rco! You definitely deserve the title.

    It took some doing, but in the end Wayne decided to simply standardize the programming forums' subforums. I like it. Expect to see a lot more good changes soon.

    Now, get posting

    Also, the Debug forums are for debugging PRE-existing scripts....not debugging your own!

    Really? That's a shame!

    (Besides, I expect most people won't realise that and will post there anyway)

    Out of interest, what is the definition of a "pre-existing script"? Is that any script which is publically available on the web?

    A pre-existing script is a full script, not a "how do I do this?" type of question. It doesn't really matter who writes it.

    yeah, perhaps I should have worded that better.

    the threads that were moved into this forum from the main asp forum don't really reflect that. plus the concept of "pre-existing script" is ambiguous. i could make a script today and then tommorrow when i'm trying to fix it, it would already be pre-exisiting. perhaps "third party" is a better way to describe?

    This whole reorg is a touch confusing, but not as bad as others I've seen. So, if you see threads that aren't where they belong, either get a list and pm an Advisor, or use the Report button

    my humble opinion is that the "debug" forum should be used for all "this code doesn't work" threads. then the root forum would be for "under this scenario, how would i do such and such?" type threads and any general discussion about that language

    Must be quite dificult to organise not surprisingly, you only have to look at aspmessageboard.com to see that, the 'unmoderated' adavnced section is filled with replies 'Not advanced'.

    The trouble is when your starting out you have no idea what code or concept is more difficult than any other. I guess the only other solution is to moderate each advanced post.

    Anyway, s'all good.
